NFL=>Sweet revenge for the Ravens


The Baltimore Ravens
exacted sweet revenge on
the New England Patriots
with a 28-13 victory in the
AFC Championship game
sending them to the Super
Bowl in New Orleans.
History will be made in
Super Bowl XLVII after John
Harbaugh’s side won in New
England to ensure he would
face his brother Jim as the
two head coaches in the big
NFL finale after he steered
his San Francisco 49ers to
the NFC crown.
Also making the headlines
heading towards the Super
Bowl will be legendary
linebacker Ray Lewis who
will look to bring the curtain
down on an amazing 17-
year career by lifting the
Vince Lombardi Trophy.
It was also the first time in
15 years that both away
teams in the Championship
games advanced to the
Super Bowl, with strangely
both Atlanta and New
England failing to score in
their respective second
halves.
The Patriots had much the
better first half but could
only muster one touchdown
from Wes Welker and two
field-goals, while Ray Rice
ran in a crucial score for
Baltimore to make it 13-7 in
the break but the home side
looked on top.
Tom Brady had a perfect
67-0 record at home when
leading at half time, so it
looked an uphill battle but
the Ravens came out
swinging with quarterback
Joe Flacco leading them to a
flurry of 21 unanswered
points.
On the defensive side,
Brady could not get the
Patriots onto the
scoreboard while he had a
tipped pass intercepted and
saw some momentum halted
when running back Stevan
Ridley unfortunately fumbled
the ball after being knocked
unconscious by Bernard
Pollard.
Anquan Boldin had another
huge game for the Ravens
as he caught two touchdown
passes during the second
half and showcased his size
and strength by dominating
the Patriots secondary.
Tight end Dennis Pitta
caught a five-yard TD from
Flacco, who really answered
some big questions about
his big-game mentality with
240 yards and three
touchdowns with no
interceptions and some fine
bullets into the end zone.
12 months ago the Ravens
missed out on the Super
Bowl after a narrow loss in
New England, but Baltimore
saw the game out to make
sure they made no mistake
this time around and
booked their ticket to New
Orleans.
It will be the Harbaugh
brothers that everyone will
be talking about as they
prepare to line-up on the
opposite sidelines to make
their own piece of history in
Super Bowl XLVII.
