The Patriots put up an impressive performance against the Texans on Sunday afternoon, allowing them to advance to the AFC Championship Game for the second straight year.
They’ll be facing the Ravens next week, just as they did last season, and Tom Curran of CSN New England will join Mike Florio on Monday’s PFT Live to discuss the team’s chances of making another trip to the Super Bowl. The injuries suffered by tight end Rob Gronkowski and running back Danny Woodhead could impact those chances and we’ll hear from Curran what the Patriots need to do to achieve the same result as last season.
One of the Patriots’ earlier trips to the Super Bowl came with the help of the Tuck Rule during a snowy playoff game against the Raiders. The Tuck Rule was not invoked on a fumble by Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning in the third quarter of their loss to the Ravens, a decision that’s been met with some confusion given the way the rule is written. NBC officiating consultant Jim Daopoulos will join Florio to talk about whether or not that was the correct ruling.
You can watch it all live at noon ET.
