Every week after the Patriots play, ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi hosts his "Bruschi on Tap" chat on ESPNBoston.com. This week's chat kicked off at 11 a.m., can be recapped here, and included some of the following topics:
1. Looking back to the 2009 playoff loss to the Ravens and how it might affect current Patriots players.
2. Linebacker/defensive end Rob Ninkovich -- a rising star.
3. A big matchup to watch in the AFC championship: Ravens DL Haloti Ngata against interior OLs Logan Mankins, Dan Connolly and Brian Waters.
4. How might the Ravens limit the production of Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez?
5. Patriots defense and domination.
