BOSTON P O STGAZETT E.CO M Patriots Rally to Knock out Ravens, Move on to Conference Championship In a game that will go down as the most memorable in Gillette Stadium's first 12 years of existence, the New En- gland Patriots survived an epic matchup with the Baltimore Ravens 35-31 sending Tom Brady and 35 erly by the Patriots and referees. Harbaugh's comments were met with incredulity on the part of the Patriots, particularly Brady who 31 fired back, "Maybe those guys [Ravens] need to study the rulebook and figure it out." Instead of preparing for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, which seemed like an inevitability all season, the Patriots will now face the Indianapolis Colts in Sundays AFC Championship game. The Colts are coming off a surprising 24-13 win in Den- ver over the Broncos. Manning, clearly off his game, floated balls out to wide-open re- ceivers, missing his intended targets. For the better part of the last month, he no longer resembled the quarterback Patriots fans have grown to despise. Uncertainty surrounding Manning's future due to his age and health issues has led to speculation that this loss may have been his last NFL game. The Patriots and Colts met in Indianapo- lis on November 16 th, with the Patriots pull- ing away from the Colts in the second half for a 42-20 win. This was the Jonas Gray game when the running back ran over the Colts defense for 201 yards and four touch- downs. And while replicating those numbers on the ground may not happen Sunday, the Patriots are at home and should be able to take care of Andrew Luck and whatever the Colts throw at them. We're moving on to the Colts... company to their 4th straight AFC Champi- onship game. Last Saturdays divisional playoff game was yet another example of why this year's edi- tion of the Patriots is unlike any other we have seen in recent memory, as they twice rallied back from ]4-point deficits, becom- ing the first team in NFL postseason his- tory to do so. "Mentally tough, resilient group of guys," said receiver Julian Edelman fol- lowing the win. "Down 14 twice, but had the confidence to come back and execute .plays when we had to." Despite the deficits, the Patriots refused to be denied. Brady shrugged off his past playoff failures versus the Ravens, capital- izing on his opponents biggest weakness: the Ravens secondary. With the running game grounded to the tune of 14 yards in the game, the lowest total rushing yards registered by a winning team in postseason history, Brady dissected the Ravens through the air for 367 yards and three touchdowns, in the process breaking his childhood idol Joe Montana's postseason touchdown mark. The Patriots organization stresses the im- portance of team rarely promoting individual records, but even his head coach Bill Belichick, couldn't help but touch on his quarterback's accomplishment. "He de- serves it. Tom's a great, clutch player. He's done it with a lot of different receivers, and against a lot of different defenses. There's no quarterback I'd rather have than Tom Brady." The games defining play will undoubtedly be a 51-yard pass from Julian Edelman to Danny Amendola to bring the Patriots back from their second 14-point disparity. Edelman, a college quarterback at Kent State before being converted to wide receiver by the Patriots, threw a beautiful pass after receiving a lateral from Brady. "We've had it in for a little bit and coach finally called it. We all saw that the [pass] coverage was what we wanted and we were able to execute the play." The Patriots first lead of the night came with 5:13 to play in the game, when Brady split the ball between two defenders on a 23-yard touchdown pass to receiver Bran- don LaFell. "It was a better catch than it was a throw, said Brady in an interview with Boston sports radio WEEI. "He got one hand on it, the defender kind of had his right arm and he still made the catch." When Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco got the ball back, he led the Ravens to the Patriots 36-yard line, where he gambled, going for it all with a pass to the end zone, and was intercepted by Patriots reserve safety Duron Harmon. With 1:39 to play and the, Ravens with only one timeout remaining, Belichick had Brady take three kneel downs, leaving 14 seconds for the Ravens to attempt a last ditch Hail Mary throw which was knocked out of the end zone by safety Devin McCourty. The Patriots and their fans could finally catch their breathe. Following the game, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh took exception to what he dubbed as "deception" on the part of the Pa- triots offense in running a sequence of plays calling for players to be lined up in tradi- tional receiver positions but to declare themselves as ineligible. Harbaugh argued that his defense was at a disadvantage due to this "substitutiontrick" and asked the league to look into these hctions. The league obliged ruling that the plays were legal in terms of formation and being reported prop- THE PASS NFL CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP PREDICTIONS NFC CHAMPIONSHIP Seahawks over Packers Sunday, January 18 th, LETTERS POLICY The Post-Gazette invites its readers to submit Letters to the Editor.
