I stopped watching after Atlanta had 17-0 lead in the first half and didn’t turn the game back on until the end of 4th quarter!

Great game. Looked like Matt had Gonzales alone in the end zone, over the middle, on that last play. Can’t blame him for the loss, though. He was excellent.

>>Looks like the Defense choked.<<

They all of a sudden got porous.

I have no idea what teams I watching in the AFC — it is not close to what was expected.

Whatever extreme moron is calling Baltimore’s offensive plays should be fired immediately. With perhaps one exception so far, it’s ALWAYS Ray Rice up the middle on 1rst down. Every. Single. Time. NE is laughing their @ss off at the stupidity and predictability. Baltimore has slowly dwindled from getting 3 yds on first down, to just one, to now getting a loss. Tough to be successful when you consistently throw one of your 3 downs away.

They must have read my post and recognized the stupidity. Suddenly they’re moving the ball again.

Pats blew their chances in the first half, but were clearly outplayed in the second half.

Those punts from the 35 yard line were costly.

Flacco played very well.

Time for Pat to get an offensive line that can protect Brady or he should demand to be traded.

Talib was the key to the Pats pass defense. Harbaugh went to the air when Talib went down.

Still, the Pats didn’t convert in the red zone. They missed Gronk.

But you have to give the Ravens credit for a solid performance.

I'll 2nd that.

GO RAVENS!!!!

Thank goodness they FINALLY opened up the offense in the 2nd half and let Flacco play. They were brutal in the 2nd half. 21-0 2nd half dominance.

LOVED watching that nasty @hole Belichick stomp off the field with a scowl at the end! Brady skulking off looking all dejected was a bonus.

Yup... I saw one of the Ravens stick out his hand to shake his and Belichick walked around him. Onto the Super Bowl!!

> “but NE getting offense going” <<

.
You don’t watch much football?

When you know that you have a playoff game in the sack, you stop putting players at risk. There was no danger of NE scoring again, why risk an injury?

but one play later it fell flat. Too much to ask of them to finally do a comeback

Pats’ fans arrogant? Don’t know many up here who really care much, no emotional investment. They ain’t the Sox. They ain’t even the Celtics or Bruins.

Interesting to note that one of the actual players in the game (Terrell Suggs) also used the word 'arrogant' to describe the Pats, although he was talking about the team, not the fans. He said 'arrogant f******'...he's right, of course; although I try to avoid the use of that word. I will enjoy the next few days basking in the tears of all the local fans who had their tickets to the Super Bowl carved in stone.

Oops. ROTFLMAO! Looking forward to the Sox finishing fourth or even last in the AL East. What a beautiful day!

WOOOOHOOOOOO! RAVENS, RAVENS, RAVENS!!

It's a chilly morning in New England, and the biting winds are going to be rough on small businessmen as they dismantle all those 'GO PATS!' signs this fine morning. There is weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth around New England this fine morning.

That was the Zac Brown Band (out of Detroit, I think). A fine country music group with their biggest hit being "Chicken Fried" (... "cold beer on a Friday night ...").

Two exciting games yesterday for sure and a fine match-up for the Superbowl. Belachek couldn't help himself yet again being a poor sport/bush-league not to appear before the cameras after his team (again) lost a big game. Glad to see Shannon Sharpe point out the coach's "unacceptable" behavior on the post-game wrap-up, adding "that's why it's easy to not like the Patriots".

Belachek was a jerk all the time he was with the Browns...just not nice to the fans and that man just has such a scowl.

that band was great.

Harbaugh Bowl!! The matchup I wanted last year.

Brady had been 67-0 at home when leading at halftime. That’s insane. No Gronk may have sealed the Pats fate. Lewis’s overemotional swan singing has clearly sparked the Ravens.

1 football game left (and the pro-bowl which somewhat resembles football). Good thing hockey is back. HOCKEY FIGHTS RULE!
