Flashback: Last Pats-Ravens playoff game

January, 17, 2012

Allow us this brief look back at the last time the Patriots and Ravens faced in the playoffs, in the wild-card round in the 2009 season. Baltimore throttled New England, 33-14, at Gillette Stadium. Among the lowlights:

* Ray Rice rank 83 yards for a score on the first play from scrimmage.

* The Ravens led 24-0 after first quarter.

* Tom Brady was picked off three times in what would be his first home playoff loss.

Here's Mike Reiss' take from that loss. He writes that the Patriots were a team in transition that just wasn't tough enough to face the rigors of the playoffs.

Would you say the same thing about this year's team? Didn't think so.
