FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - From the very first play, Ray Rice and
the running Ravens made the team of the last decade look like the
pushovers of the new one.
Rice burst up the middle for an 83-yard touchdown with frigid
fans still settling into their seats, Tom Brady turned the ball
over three times and Baltimore knocked off New England 33-14 on
Sunday in a stadium where the Patriots had never lost a playoff
The Ravens (10-7) were only slight underdogs to the team that
won three Super Bowls from 2002 through 2005. Now, if they beat
Indianapolis next Saturday night, they'll reach the AFC
championship game for the second straight year as a wild-card team.
