The New England Patriots are looking for their 11th win of 2016, to tie the 2003-09 Indianapolis Colts for the NFL record of 7-straight seasons with 11+ victories. In order to accomplish this feat, the Patriots will have to go through the resurgent Baltimore Ravens.
Baltimore is clinging to the top of the AFC North and need a win to remain in the playoff picture. The Patriots are trying to defend their home turf and leave with a win, but the Ravens have never been afraid of the Patriots.
The Patriots and Ravens are tied for 1st in the NFL in points allowed per game, in what has to be one of the first times in NFL history that two teams are tied for the #1 defense square off, if not the first time this late in the year.
