The playoffs are here! Today, the New England Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens to kick off their 2014 postseason. The Patriots finished the regular season at 12-4 with the AFC's number one seed. Baltimore, at 10-6, finished as the AFC's sixth seed, and are coming off a 30-17 thrashing of the #3 seeded Pittsburgh Steelers.
For the Patriots, a victory will secure them a spot in the AFC's title game for the fourth consecutive season. The Ravens, having missed the playoffs in 2013, look to get back to the AFC Championship for the first time since they ousted New England en route to a Super Bowl title in 2012.
Records and past performances are out the window. These two teams have very little love for each other. Should be a great one!
