Howdy faithful! I'm opening this game thread up super early (10am EDT) in case you want to start kabitzing a couple hours before the game. We don't lose playoff games in Foxboro. Period. I'm not counting on that, mind you, but it's not a bad stat to think of. Homefield advantage is huge in January; I'll take it when I can get it.
It's weird, ya know? I'm not running around the house screaming, "Yeah! We're gonna crush Baltimore!!!" It's more cautious optimism, like "Ok guys, you can do this. Let's see what you got." Strange. Anyway, here's Friday's injury report with only Dan Connolly listed as questionable and the usual cast of probables. Yeah, I like that.
It's Ravens @ Patriots people! A super strong defense against our passing attack. Can Julian Edelman step up? Can Tom Brady find Randy Moss? Is the rushing attack up to the task? Will Tully Banta-Cain keep the pressure on Joe Flacco? Many questions. We need answers. 1pm EDT is the time and Foxboro, MA is the place.
