Not many pundits had the Ravens defeating the Steelers. The Baltimore Ravens were more than happy to prove people wrong as they dismantled the Steelers 30-17 and advanced to the divisional round to battle the New England Patriots.
The Ravens have no fear about facing top-seeded New England on Saturday. Baltimore is 2-1 against the Patriots on the road in the playoffs, including a 28-13 triumph in January 2013 that preceded a 34-31 victory over San Francisco in the Super Bowl.

With the Ravens in the middle of game preparations for their Wild Card game against the Steelers, the last thing Baltimore needed was off the field distractions. But that’s exactly what they’ll get with the news surfacing about their head of security.
