Patriots drill Ravens 41-7

The Ravens won’t be playing for the AFC North title in Week 17.

They needed a win against the Patriots on Sunday to put themselves into position for a shot at the division crown, but turnovers, penalties and overall sloppy play doomed them to a 41-7 loss. The first half was a disaster for the Ravens and any feeling about a comeback in the final 30 minutes pretty much evaporated when Justin Tucker missed a field goal in the second half. Not only was it a curious call after the Ravens had gone on several fourth down tries after falling three scores behind New England, but it also resulted in Tucker’s first miss after 33 straight makes.

In other words, when Tucker’s not right then nothing’s going right for the Ravens. And very little went right for Baltimore on Sunday. Most of the focus will deservedly be on the offense, which extended their touchdown-less streak to seven quarters before Joe Flacco scored on a one-yard plunge in the fourth quarter.

Flacco was 22-of-38 for 260 yards and two inteceptions on a day when he and his receivers seemed largely out of sync. The running game succeeded in fits and starts, but passing became the order of the day once the Ravens fell behind and they could never sustain momentum until the game was way out of reach. It didn’t help that the Patriots also came up with four sacks on a very strong defensive day across the board that was capped off with a pair of defensive scores off turnovers by Tyrod Taylor in garbage time.

The loss makes the Bengals AFC North champions and it gives a reprieve to the Dolphins after Miami lost earlier in the day in similarly one-sided fashion against the Bills. With the Dolphins, Steelers and Chargers also in the mix for the final playoff spot, the Ravens will still need to beat the Bengals even with the division on the table.

The Patriots didn’t put up many fireworks on offense Sunday, but they ground out 142 rushing yards on 34 carries to make their early lead stand up. They clinched the AFC East when the Dolphins lost and the win keeps them ahead of the Bengals in the race for the No. 2 seed and a bye into the divisional round of the playoffs. If they beat the Bills next week, that spot will be theirs and they can try to get cornerback Kyle Arrington, safety Devin McCourty and running back Shane Vereen healthy after injuries on Sunday.

    Odds on ‘Ravenswhat’ becoming ‘Ravenswhere’ for the next week or so?

    Ha ha.

    Flacco was awful today but the 41 points does a great disservice to a Baltimore D that hung tough nearly all game to keep the awful O in it.

    Go Patriots!

  4. capegolfer says: Dec 22, 2013 8:01 PM

    Worst home lost ever!

  5. oriolesvsravens says: Dec 22, 2013 8:01 PM

    It was an Easter Egg hunt sponsored by my favorite team. Too bad its Christmas John. I think the Pats knew it all along.

    Brady is elite
    Flacco is a total bum
    But Flacco paid more?????????

  8. jakec4 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:02 PM

    The Ravens didn’t look this bad in week 1 at Denver. At least they made a game out of that one until halftime. They were never even in this game.

    It’s pretty clear that the AFC only has five playoff caliber teams while a ten or eleven win team from the NFC will miss the playoffs.

  9. patriotinvasion says: Dec 22, 2013 8:03 PM

    Woodshed game Ravens fans. Pats just owned you in your house when you controlled your destiny to win your division. 41-7. But I’m sure you guys will blame the refs. Smh.

  10. 2001asterisk2003asterisk2004asterisk says: Dec 22, 2013 8:03 PM

    Refs set the tone. 14 – 0 on b.s. Calls right out of the gate.

  11. keepongronking says: Dec 22, 2013 8:03 PM

    Your welcome Miami, San Diego and Pittsburgh

  12. weepingjebus says: Dec 22, 2013 8:05 PM

    Absolutely brilliant challenge there at the end. You knew the football gods would punish a coach for trying to exploit his own player’s mistake for better field position. If he’d just taken the punt return spot, that botched snap would have been a safety out of the back of the end zone, not a live ball that led to a Patriots TD.

  13. laxer37 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:05 PM

    The cure for the Pats awful defense is apparently the Raven’s non-existent offense.

  14. exnavysub says: Dec 22, 2013 8:06 PM

    Flacco’s injury gave them no chance to win tonight. And in all other areas they were just awful.

    I dont know why, but nothing makes me angrier than seeing the Pats win. I really hope the other AFC playoff teams come to play and bounce them out. There isnt a nicer sight than seeing Bellichick and Brady walk off the field all ticked off as losers.

  15. 2001asterisk2003asterisk2004asterisk says: Dec 22, 2013 8:06 PM

    Anyone else tired of the rim job simms / nance give each week?

    I’m sure kraft gives them an extra Hanukah bonus each year for that rear end make out sesh.

  16. classyjacklambert says: Dec 22, 2013 8:07 PM

    Probably should have used some of that flacco money to find a decent journeyman playcaller.

  17. redandgoldhitman52 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:07 PM

    i dont care if my new contract killed my team cap wise or that i really stink as being a qb… im rich!!!

  18. holeinone09 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:08 PM

    Ouch. That had to hurt.

    Meanwhile, the Steelers won and are much more deserving of the playoffs right now than the Ravens. Hoping for a big Christmas gift for Steeler Nation next week.

  19. strokinmyego says: Dec 22, 2013 8:08 PM

    Here’s a win nobody saw coming, nobody picked the Patriots and they showed the NFL just how dangerous they are when people start doubting them.

    Complete domination. The Patriots and Brady aren’t going anywhere haters, and with the Donkeys losing Miller for the season Denver is weaker then ever before. This Patriots team can’t ever be underestimated that’s for sure.

  20. jr4real says: Dec 22, 2013 8:09 PM

    Nice effort by the Ravens. Looks like a team making tee times.

  21. tothefellowshipofthemiserable says: Dec 22, 2013 8:09 PM

    Brady just sent Suggs a sympathy card.

  22. scoobies05 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:10 PM

    absolutely awful. well done pats fans. you guys were the better team today. lets hope we can knock out cinci and hope for the best

  23. harrisonhits2 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:12 PM

    As a Pats fan you have to be fair. Flacco’s knee is obviously not right and he got hit hard several times early in the game that had to have made it worse.

    Doesn’t make the win any less sweet though.

  24. all4patriots says: Dec 22, 2013 8:13 PM

    41-7, in Baltimore.

    Driving the field with just run after run, right up the middle.

    The Raven D’s collective testicles were ripped off, spiked, and strewn around the field.

    awesome.

    Even Suggs will have to be quiet, sulking there, ball-less

  25. mrsmell says: Dec 22, 2013 8:14 PM

    Tyrod Taylor, I remember his name being brought up a game changer. He sure changed the game tonight, put up 14 pts himself.

  26. doctorrustbelt says: Dec 22, 2013 8:14 PM

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS!!!! Nothing better than seeing the Ravens get beat down, NOTHING!!! Where are all the Patriot haters and doubters from last week??? Hahahaha. Belichick does it again, Blount runs over everyone, Brady does with 2 slot receivers, and the DEFENSE showed the world why Flacco is so overrated.

  28. steelerdynasty2010 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:15 PM

    this brings me immense joy……

  29. javierjiminy says: Dec 22, 2013 8:15 PM

    Going to the movies proved the Ravens were not worth studying for. And today’s score verified that to all those haters out there. Go Pats!

  30. beerbudsnbevo says: Dec 22, 2013 8:16 PM

    I know this has nothing to do with this thread…

    But the Redskins are 3-12

    That’s freaking hilarious.

  31. laxer37 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:16 PM

    Tough times at Ball So Hard University.

  32. doe22us says: Dec 22, 2013 8:17 PM

    See what happens when you pop off, when you are feeling yourself just a bit legatron, I can’t believe all week long people in Baltimore were coming with all sorts of dumb nicknames. If you looked carefully at the Ravens this season they have been a very mediocre team, but when you have shades on in Baltimore people fail to realize that the offense is indeed bad.

  33. Patskrieg dot com says: Dec 22, 2013 8:17 PM

    Eagerly awaiting this season’s conspiracy theory rant via Terrell Suggs and the Ravens locker room on why they lost the game. I’m really hoping they introduce some new characters and plot elements to change up the stagnant storyline.

    Either way can’t wait.

  34. brazzz01 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:20 PM

    I wonder if Suggs has any post game dancing for us.

  35. noah81398 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:22 PM

    All Flacco did last year was close his eyes and throw the ball as far downfield as he could and pray Boldin made a play on it.

    News Flash: He doesn’t have him anymore, and he is certainly making a case as to why he is overwhelmingly not deserving of $120 mill.

    Also I just knew this lack of offense was going to be attributed to his knee. Gosh, his knee didn’t look that bad when he planted his left leg and launched one 50 yards down the field. Give me a break.

    Nobody wants to admit that Patriots were an all out better team in this MASSACRE. The Golden boy was laughing on the sidelines.

    TOM BRADY was laughing. Did the Ravens really win it all last year?

  36. weepingjebus says: Dec 22, 2013 8:22 PM

    With one game left, will Joe Flacco meet his goal of averaging one INT per $1 million in salary? The suspense is terrible, I hope it’ll last.

  37. ravenswhat says: Dec 22, 2013 8:23 PM

    That was the worst game I ever attended bar none. Pathetic display by the Ravens. This season is done.

  38. patriotinvasion says: Dec 22, 2013 8:26 PM

    The Pats have morphed into a smash mouth team again. Pounded the run on Ngata and those boys. Even with all the injuries – Gronk, Wilfork, Mayo, Vollmer, and Kelly – the Pats can play with any team in this league, and if they get the bye, are certainly capable of winning 3 straight and Lombardi #4. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

  39. buzzbeaubank says: Dec 22, 2013 8:28 PM

    Sometimes you have to shake your head and laugh. Good game, Pats fans!

  40. 8oneanddones says: Dec 22, 2013 8:29 PM

    “As a Pats fan you have to be fair. Flacco’s knee is obviously not right and he got hit hard several times early in the game that had to have made it worse.”

    Are you seriously a Pats fan? No team has ever been more screwed by a knee injury than New England in 2008. In any case, Flacco’s knee is not worth 34 points.

  41. pixelprola says: Dec 22, 2013 8:30 PM

    Flacco has no drive, desire or heart. Yeah, he was injured but his detached attitude carried over to the rest of the team. Overpaid schlub.

  42. ecupatsfan12 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:30 PM

    Really proud of our defense (got me a ton of fantasy points lol) and our coaching staff. BB is a genius-this team just keeps on humming. Tom has lost a little zip on his passes and is having accuracy issues but is still great. Really happy the way Edelman has been playing as of late-balling out. The Ravens looked lost all game-especially in the running game- Castillo needs to go. We have to beat Buff next week to get healthy-the only teams that worry me are Cincy and Miami out of the AFC. Plus the SB is in Jersey-which will help us massively if we can get past Denver.

  43. eviltwin007 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:32 PM

    Thanks Baltimore, just think you had every Colts fan rooting for you and you guys found a way to blow it literately. To all of you Pats fans on here. Slow your roll. I will still put my money on the fact you guys won’t win the Super Bowl.

  44. blackngold4life says: Dec 22, 2013 8:40 PM

    And Ratbird fans say the Steelers got blown out by the Patriots??

  45. dualprime says: Dec 22, 2013 8:41 PM

    Today Peyton Manning set the single season TD record at 51 with more to come next week when the Broncos clinch the #1 seed in the AFC. Best QB ever!

  46. brazzz01 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:44 PM

    The refs obviously were paid off again to favor the Pats, that’s why it was a 41-7 game. The Pats only win by luck, paid off refs and spygate. everyone knows that.

    Everyone knows every Pats win this year was given to the them by the refs. Every Pats loss was fair and square.

    I bet the Pats paid the guy in Buffalo to pull the fire alarm on the Dolphins too and install secret cameras in M&T Bank Stadium. There’s just no low they won’t stoop to.

  47. tedmurph says: Dec 22, 2013 8:50 PM

    Sometimes when you get punched in the face, you just gotta stay down. Well done ravens, stayed down…as well as your trash talking fans that will do the same thing as equally obnoxious steeler fans. Disappear.

  48. tictoccpthook says: Dec 22, 2013 8:50 PM

    From Steelers fan. Flacco was injured last week and it showed. Injuries and the 16 week season has made it difficult for any team to be at their best; luck and depth make a difference. So, when Jerry Jones and others call for an 18 week season, tell them where to go.

    The AFC North is the most impacted by a longer season. The Ravens, Browns, and Ravens wreck havoc on one another. Flacco may be better next week.

    Go Steelers (we still have a thread of hope).

  49. alan226 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:52 PM

    I never thought I would say this, but the Pats were the tougher team, mentally and physically.

    And Ravens fans, no injury excuses. NO TEAM in the NFL has been decimated with injuries like the Patriots have, yet they find a way. The Ravens solution is to make personal foul penalties when they get behind.

  50. tedmurph says: Dec 22, 2013 8:52 PM

    Suggs hates Brady. Anyone hear his name today?

  51. brazzz01 says: Dec 22, 2013 8:53 PM

    Would have been nice if the Pats brought a little of this last January. Oh well…

  52. doctorrustbelt says: Dec 22, 2013 8:53 PM

    2013 AFC North Champion Cincinnati Bengals

    ENJOY ! ! !

  53. Gdelarocks says: Dec 22, 2013 8:53 PM

    The way Miami and Baltimore played today, and even the way San Diego played in an ugly, albeit winning effort today- it’s a shame to think one of those 3 will end up in the playoffs while the Cardinals, barring a disastrous upset by the Falcons, will not be in the postseason with potentially an 11-5 record in the impossibly tough NFC West.

    That said, it was about this time last year the Ravens were embarrassed at home by the Broncos, and I ruled them out.

  54. burndownhottopic says: Dec 22, 2013 8:56 PM

    Well boys, thats spelled embarrassed. At home. Playoff teams don’t play that game at home against another playoff team in week 16. If we get in next week it will be something else; still go Ravens.

  55. Nofoolnodrool says: Dec 22, 2013 9:00 PM

    Good win for the Pats congrats. Great coach miserable fans. Can’t way for their falling in the playoffs as usual since spy gate.

  56. patsfan92 says: Dec 22, 2013 9:06 PM

    lol clear to see jacoby jones, boldin, and ray lewis were the reasons this team won last year. GO PATS

  57. joetoronto says: Dec 22, 2013 9:08 PM

    The Bungals win the division, my God man.

    SMH.

    Broncos will destroy the pats in the playoffs.

  59. mic08n64 says: Dec 22, 2013 9:12 PM

    Well, Flacco now has more int’s (19) than td’s (18).

    meanwhile back in SF Boldin is laughing at the inept Ravens offense!

  61. blackngold4life says: Dec 22, 2013 9:22 PM

    About time!! Now go win a playoff game for once

  62. jmblosser82 says: Dec 22, 2013 9:25 PM

    Jake, I would say 4 SB caliber teams, maybe only 3 or 3. Colts got blown out 3 out of 4 games and the chiefs are hit or miss. The 6th seed will not win and playoff game.
    Stroking, I was telling all of raven nation right after the patriot loss that they would go into Baltimore and win.

  63. lanman11 says: Dec 22, 2013 9:28 PM

    Biggest game of the season and you get PUNKED IN YOUR OWN CRIB. Good thing the Bengals have nothing to play for next week. Or do they? I’d think they have some pay backs to dish out….

  64. patsfan1820 says: Dec 22, 2013 9:31 PM

    I was at the game. That was literally the best game I could have asked for. Ravens might be one step closer to getting knocked out of the playoffs and the Patriots got a big win. Nothing better than that. Oh and by the way Joe Flacco sucks.

  65. ravensnosncaps says: Dec 22, 2013 9:33 PM

    Ravens deserved to lose. Pats smoked em. FYI, ravens fans are well aware they are not that good this year. Doesn’t mean we stop cheering for them.

  66. coachjp36 says: Dec 22, 2013 9:33 PM

    My favorite part of this game was watching that blowhard Suggs celebrate his sack down 20-0 late in the third. Sums up what the selfish Ravens are about without leadership.

  67. marthisdil says: Dec 22, 2013 9:36 PM

    Flacco showing yet again why he’s “worth” $20 mill a year, right Baltimore?

  68. j0esixpack says: Dec 22, 2013 9:37 PM

    Brady, by taking a below market contract, may not have seen those savings invested in big name receivers.

    But what he did see is the savings going to higher caliber backups and role players.

    While Brady’s comeback play with a roster held together with band-aids is the stuff of legend, in games like today’s it was the roster depth with backups playing key roles that ultimately carried the game.

    That’s always been Belichick’s approach – and we’ve seen many teams with fewer injuries fail to do as well as the Patriots with major injuries.

  69. tedmurph says: Dec 22, 2013 9:37 PM

    I don’t even need Viagra after that beat down. Good to go

  70. i10east says: Dec 22, 2013 9:37 PM

    Blount killed that Ray Lewis dance, LOL

  71. scalfor3 says: Dec 22, 2013 9:41 PM

    Can’t wait to hear how the refs were the reason Baltimore got smacked around in their own building by a team missing both defensive tackles, it’s best linebacker, both starting offensive tackles and the best tight end in football.

  72. rocketcrab says: Dec 22, 2013 9:44 PM

  74. realfootballfan says: Dec 22, 2013 9:50 PM

    So much for the insurgent Ravens. I was somewhat puzzled at all the people who not only picked the Ravens, but didn’t even give it a second thought. oops.

    Look on the bright side though, at least they’re not the Dolphins losing to a 3rd stringer twice in one year.

  75. all4patriots says: Dec 22, 2013 9:52 PM

    Bitter droolboy strikes again. If you’re in Pittsburgh and your team is irrelevent, what’s worse: rooting against the Pats or the ravens? I don’t know, they both own the steelers. Guess you just gotta get it off your concave chest sometimes. Nice touch throwing in the lame, irrelevent spygate ref. Kudos to the most interesting man in he world. NOT.

  78. jmblosser82 says: Dec 22, 2013 10:04 PM

    Ravens are owned by the steelers, but I would agree the pats own the steelers.

  79. shovelhunter says: Dec 22, 2013 10:11 PM

  81. dudeicle says: Dec 22, 2013 10:28 PM

    ya know, with about 10 minutes left in the game and the Ravens’ D playing lights out, I really thought they had a chance to make the 3 scores they needed. Ironically, though, it was the Patriots making 3 scores in the final 2:05. And none of the so-called experts gave the Pats a chance in this game.

  82. thelastwordyaheard says: Dec 22, 2013 10:33 PM

  84. steelcurtainn says: Dec 22, 2013 11:23 PM

    and some people still think the ravens are a playoff team, lol laughable. The ravens offense is a joke. They got hammered by 34 points at home with the playoffs on the line. No superbowl this year.

  85. unitasftw says: Dec 22, 2013 11:54 PM

    Good Idea: Let’s all root for Tom brady and the pats. They might start to lose more.

  86. crownofthehelmet says: Dec 22, 2013 11:55 PM

    Look on the bright side, it could be worst, you could be the afcn winner, then go out and embarrass the division by once again getting bounced in the first round.

    Though I’m not sure it’s possible to be worse than that clubbing.

  87. dirtybirds233 says: Dec 23, 2013 12:03 AM

    The “elite” Joe Flacco has a 49.8 QBR this year! Now I can’t really talk too much trash given that my team is abysmal this year, but what I can say is that Mr. Flacco is vastly overpaid. Now go ahead, tell me how bad Matt Ryan is, cause right now he’s having his worst season he’s ever had yet he’s STILL in the top 10 for QBR

  88. guitarkevin says: Dec 23, 2013 12:33 AM

    I am a DIE HARD RAVENS FAN!!!!!

    And we got our behinds waxed tonight! Wow! We were a total no-show and schooled in our own back yard!

    I can only hope we take that butt whooping as a serious wakeup call. Because we face the Bengals in Cincy next week who wholloped the Vikings today.

    Harbs needs to step up the game plan.

    Go RAVENS!!!!!!!!

  89. jbsptfn says: Dec 23, 2013 2:32 AM

    I don’t know why Brady gets much credit for this win. The officials helped, and Flako handed them the game. He should have been benched in the second quarter.

  90. patriottony says: Dec 23, 2013 3:29 AM

    PATS 41
    EXPERTS …..ZERO!!!!

    You know given alllllllll the injuries to the PATS, they play with heart,,period.

    I can’t understand how every ESPN expert was so wrong, HATERS?

  91. sogooda says: Dec 23, 2013 4:18 AM

    Big money for Joe Flacco at the expense of Anquan Boldin.

    How’s that looking now?

  92. pastabelly says: Dec 23, 2013 5:07 AM

    Sunday morning Baltimore was favored by 1.5 points and line moved 3.5 points before kickoff and Pats were favored by 2. That had to be all about Flacco’s injury. Great games by Ryan, Mankins, and Edelman.

  93. patsfan13 says: Dec 23, 2013 7:04 AM

    I was very surprised that a brawl didn’t break out when Blount did the Ray Lewis dance. I guess by then, the Ratbirds were already so beaten, their spirit was completely gone by then.

    So Andy Dalton – the one who has NEVER won a playoff game – that one ?? and the Bengals who have how many Super Bowls – that team ??

    Brady – he’s amazing – he is. But the Ravens have beat him in their last 2 playoff games in NE – and he’s lost his last 2 super bowls..so…he ain’t perfect. Yeah and it’s easy to take less money when your wife makes 10 times what you make..just sayin’

    And Flacco – well – no doubt he played like crap – but that 3rd and 13 in Denver last year was a jump ball – yeah – that guy – despite the crappy year they are still going to win at least 8 games. How’s Matt Ryan looking this year etc etc etc.

    One more thing – post-game Brady said the victory was “pretty sweet”.

    We’re coming, Peyton. Be afraid – be very afraid.

    I hope the Ravens fire Caldwell and Pees this off season. The offense is stuck in the 1970s and the defense chokes in the fourth quarter.

    Ravens been averaging 18 games a year for last 5 yrs.maybe a break this year will set up a nice run for next yr.this team will not miss playoffs 2 yrs in row.we will see what happens next week because no would want to play them with all that playoof experience.every team knows that but fans wont admit it….

  98. thelogicalsportsfan says: Dec 23, 2013 8:35 AM

    Three things:

    1. Where did the “Ratbirds” nickname come from? It’s pretty terrible if you’re trying to dig at at a team.

    2. Brady crushed the Ravens, Pats deserved to win on impeccable game planning. That being said, going 8-8 after a superbowl win (If Baltimore loses to Cinci, which is highly likely) is historically pretty accurate with teams coming off a Superbowl. You can’t expect to win every single year.

    3. Hilarious how no one ever tried that Ray Lewis dance while he was still playing. Probably wouldn’t of ended well.

    Ravens really put up a stinker, top to bottom, in that game. Game showed again that Belichick and his staff usually come prepared for big games, if you’re playing the Pats, you better be ready, too. Pats deserved the win.

    Some of those ref actions were truly SMH.

  100. ravensterps says: Dec 23, 2013 9:23 AM

    I love all the hate Flacco gets. Most wins in the first 6 years of a QB’s career. He has arguably the best arm in the league and makes all kinds of throws.

    The people who call him jump ball Joe don’t know much about football.

  101. mayers59 says: Dec 23, 2013 9:26 AM

    Though the stats might not show it. This might be Brady’s best year in leading the team considering what he has had to work with offensively this season.

  102. bonniebengal says: Dec 23, 2013 9:41 AM

    @kpizzow: Andy Dalton has 31 TD passes this year. $120 million Flacco has 18. And who cares who won the SB last year or 20 years ago? We’re talking about now.

  103. gisellichek says: Dec 23, 2013 9:50 AM

    Meaningless… woopteedoo the Pats beat a crappy ravens team. This Pats team is decimated by injuries… Playing on pure pride … They have a date with the Broncos in January. Hope the keep it.

  104. jtbsteeler says: Dec 23, 2013 10:10 AM

    Jumpball, haha. I told you.

  105. Joemontanaflacco says: Dec 23, 2013 10:11 AM

    Ravens fans stand proud both in victory and defeat. This was a tough loss, made more glaring by throwing caution to the wind when there was no chance of winning. Lots of penalties but you won’t hear Ravens fans griping about that. This is Baltimore. Not Pittsburgh. We earn our wins and we deserve our losses.

  106. jtbsteeler says: Dec 23, 2013 10:14 AM

    Blount clowned you and your fanbase.

  107. newenglandynasty says: Dec 23, 2013 10:19 AM

    What a whoopin.. Fantastic for all the asterisk people out there .. Ball so hard …lol Ravens gave up.. The refs …ohh the humanity … It’s about time the pats do to the clowns what flakeo does all the to e throw it up and hope for a flag.. What a Christmas gift.. Patriot may or may not make it far in the playoffs , but this is priceless

  108. jtbsteeler says: Dec 23, 2013 10:36 AM

    How can the Raven fans cry about calls when the last few weeks you’ve gotten Jumpball calls left and right? Not to mention that Minnesota game. YOu should already be eliminated from the playoffs, all the ref helped that you’ve received this year.

    There hasn’t been a worse call or stupid NFL rule exposed than what the Steelers had to go through yesterday. We still won on the road!

    Not to mention 6 “defenseless punter/kicker” tackles in that game yesterday. What a crock and embarrassing hypocrisy on display yesterday in the GB vs Steeler game.

  109. jtbsteeler says: Dec 23, 2013 10:41 AM

    Caldwell – Cam Cameron,

    common denominator = Jumpball Joe.

    The Pats were dancing after every single yard they gained and were celebrating like they’d won the Super Bowl when they scored two TDs in the last two minutes against the Ravens’ backups after the game had already been decided.

    I mean, everyone knows the Pats love to run the score up, but this was personal.

    Guess they were still salty we knocked them out of the playoffs last year. ;)

    Um… That would be 1-1 in the last 2 Ravens’ playoff games in NE.

    Running up the score? Those were defensive touchdowns, gifts from the Ravens.

    The picture above says it all for the ravens season with that 34 point embarrassing lost at home.

    ———————————-

    You must not watch a lot of football, because most defensive backs just go down after catching the game-clinching pick.

    Look, I have no problem with teams running up the score, as the Patriots so often do. I also have no problem with your players celebrating the garbage time TDs like they’d won the Super Bowl, cause it’s probably the closest they’ll get now that the NFL has stopped you guys from cheating.

    But you know they didn’t try to run a fake field goal like the Ravens…in other words quit whining. You lost so suck it up buttercup.

    Did anyone else see how many times the camera panned over to Brady and see him with a funny face on looking around for a high five and wonder if he was doing it on purpose after that GIF that went around a few weeks ago?

  117. scoobies05 says: Dec 23, 2013 12:41 PM

    come on ravens fans. we got it handed to us yesterday. but that game is over and the playoffs are still in sight. lets focus on beating cinci and rooting for the jets and chiefs.

  118. patriotinvasion says: Dec 23, 2013 12:43 PM

    @ravensterps – You mean like how the Ravens cheated last year with dear antler extract steroids to get Ray Ray back after he tore his tricep? An injury that lands every player not CHEATING on IR?

    2012 Ravens*

    *Cheated to sneak their inspirational leader back on the field with a BANNED, illegal, cheating substance aka steroids

    Now this is really funny . Nice attempt at making a chanting crowd sound mature…you know the sound was picked up….they weren’t wishing anyone merry Christmas ….lipstick on a pig just leaves you with make up on a pig….pathetic.

  121. ravensterps says: Dec 23, 2013 3:31 PM

    First, the irony of a Pats fan putting an asterisk on another team’s championship is almost too much to take.

    Second, the steroid in deer antler spray can not be ingested topically. Meaning it does nothing. It’s snake oil.

  122. tedmurph says: Dec 23, 2013 5:21 PM

    If it doesn’t do anything, why did Lewis do it? Also, ‘ingesting something topically’ doesn’t even make sense.

  123. bigwii says: Dec 23, 2013 9:23 PM

    You can tell Pats haters no nothing about football with all the asterisk talk, either that or they refuse to accept reality. Oh, we’ll they live in their own world anyway. Ravens got smoked deal with it.

  124. TheBirdsAreBackinBmore says: Dec 26, 2013 2:02 PM

    Guys, if the Ravens make the playoffs, you’ll see whos the better team, Its the Ravens. With the short week and playing the zebras too, Joe flacco’s bum knee, and absolutely no fire on any side of the ball, i wont lose any sleep over this loss. If we miss the playoffs so be it, we just won the superbowl you clowns. Saying that, I hope the ravens draft Evans from TAnM. Hes a beast and would give joe somebody to throw to. The Patriots are still a joke, dont kid yourself, you have no shot in the playoffs and you know it

    Says a fan of the team that everyone said had no chance entering last years playoffs. You learn nothing because you remember nothing.
