The Pats secondary is definitely a lot better. And the Ravens run-D versus the Pats new, powerful run game may very well be the key matchup of the entire game.Still, I'm not feeling great about the Pats' ability to overcome the tough, physical Ravens D without Gronkowski to create mismatches. They're going to have to do a lot of damage on the ground to open up the passing game, or else the Ravens will just jam Welker, Lloyd, Branch etc at the line and Tom will get frazzled.
I want all of you to pray Atlanta pulls the upset over the Niners today. As that is the only way we are going to lift the Lombardi this year.
hmm, tough call. Pats have developed a bad habit of choking in a game they are figured to win since their last championship. not sure if it'll be this week or the bowl game itself.

That's true, but I think in football there's a tendency to make a big deal out of small sample sizes.The Patriots have lost some big games in the past 5-6 years. Games they were favored to win. Yet only once have they lost convincingly (against the Ravens in 2009). The rest were very close.
