Still a one score game.  Not losing hope.

Ridley got clobbered on that play, and Ravens recover.  That's the game, folks.

Bernard Pollard has been personally responsible for injuring more patriots than anyone else in the nfl.

It's not happening this year.  What's so frustrating is that this team should've been up by AT LEAST 10 halfway through the third.

Without Aquib Talib, this is nothing but the same old crappy defense before he got here.  They've completely abandoned the hurry-up, are being shut out this half, can't stop anyone...

Basically, this has turned into an ass-kicking with the blink of an eye

The Ravens have played a great game, and they deserve this win.

But it's hard not to talk about all the injuries for the Pats.

Gronk
Jones
Talib
Love
Ridley
Chung

Just crazy.  Tons of important guys not playing in this second half.

I agree with everything you said, but still 11 mins left...

Now it's officially over. I love when the Patriots have a total meltdown. That's what happens when you try to play differently than you normally do. They are the 3rd leading scoring offense in NFL history, but punted three times from the ~35 yd line. They have two of the best game managers ever in Brady / Belichick and they blow it at the end of the 1st half. Wes Welker is supposed to be awesome, but had a huge drop that totally changed the outlook of this game.

And let's talk about all of our pro-bowl defensive players...Great job guys - way to show up!

Again, the Pats have made mistakes, and the Ravens have made some really big plays.

But look at the list of guys injured.  Pats just aren't the same team.

This isn't over.  The Pats are making it look easy right now.


D. Cousins / I. Mahinmi / P. Antic
D. West / R. Anderson / C. Copeland
L. Deng / K. Singler / D. Rudez
A. Iguodala / V. Carter / B. Gordon / C.J. Wilcox
K. Irving / S. Livingston / S. Blake

Brady just doesn't have any endzone targets right now.  Ravens just have to double cover Hernandez and that's it.  No Ridley, no Gronk, no TDs.

Agreed, with the injuries piling, they need to play a perfect game...and it hasn't been that.  The clock management at the end of the half was insulting, more drops than usual too.

I, for one, am never to use an injury excuse...and this is Gronk aside because he goes without saying, but Aquib Talib was the ONE guy on defense they couldn't lose.  He was basically solely responsible for turning this defense into at least a respectable defense.  Without him, they turn back into the same crappy defense that gives up pass play after pass play.

Pats D doesn't force any turnovers.

Brady is missing his top endzone targets.

Opponent has a tough, physical D that doesn't get scared by the big moment.

You have the ingredients for a Pats loss.

That'll do it.  What a way to end a promising season.

Even with the injuries, I'm shocked that the Pats didn't win this.  I thought for sure that once Denver lost, the Pats were going to the Super Bowl.
