It is week two of the NFL Playoffs, and only eight teams are still in the race for the Lombardi Trophy. Among them, the New England Patriots, who enter the tournament today. Let's take a look at today's games.

Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots

Ravens coverage: Baltimore Beatdown

Baltimore Ravens 4:35 PM ET (NBC) New England Patriots
10-6 (3rd AFC North, #6 seed) Gillette Stadium, Foxborough MA 12-4 (1st AFC East, #1 seed)
Head Coach: John Harbaugh Statistical Comparison Head Coach: Bill Belichick
8th (25.6/gm) Points Offense 4th (29.2/gm)

6th (6.7/gm) Point Differential 1st (9.7/gm)
14th (+2) Turnover Differential 2nd (+12)

After beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild Card Round, the Baltimore Ravens travel to Foxborough to take on the AFC East Champion New England Patriots. The Patriots, the top seed in the AFC, look to give head coach Bill Belichick a record-tying 20th postseason win. Interesting fact: the Patriots and Ravens are two of three NFL teams (the other being the Seahawks) to be in the top 10 in both scoring offense and defense.

Carolina Panthers at Seattle Seahawks

Panthers coverage: Cat Scratch Reader

Seahawks coverage: Field Gulls

Carolina Panthers 8:15 PM ET (FOX) Seattle Seahawks
7-8-1 (1st NFC South, #4 seed) CenturyLink Field, Seattle WA 12-4 (1st NFC West, #1 seed)
Head Coach: Ron Rivera Statistical Comparison Head Coach: Pete Carroll
19th (21.2/gm) Points Offense 10th (24.6/gm)

One week after eliminating a team from the NFC West – the Arizona Cardinals – the Carolina Panthers try to do the same in the Divisional Round. They travel to Seattle to face the NFC's number one seeded Seahawks, who have not lost at CenturyLink Field since week 6. The reigning Super Bowl Champions try to expand their current six-game win streak.
