Mark Zinno: Ravens Vs. Patriots – A New Rivalry
Clifton Brown of Comcast Sports Net joined Zinno on “Last Call” to talk about the huge match-up on Sunday between the Ravens and Patriots. It is turning into a great rivalry between these two AFC powerhouses. “Once the game starts, none of that will matter. It’s a different rivalry,” Brown said.
The two teams have split the last six meetings with the Ravens averaging 25 points per game against the Patriots 21 per game. “I think right now at this moment, people are expecting this Ravens team to go to the playoffs,” said Brown, as the Ravens can clinch the AFC North title with two more wins to close out the regular season.
The Ravens have ridden Joe Flacco over the last four weeks and they will need to rely on him going forward. He will wear a knee brace to protect his left knee that was injured in Week 15. Brown remarked, “There’s no question that Joe’s had more to carry this year than ever.”
