Three more days until the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots get it on in the AFC Championship. Usually these games bring out trash talk between each other but it’s been fairly quiet on that end. In fact, both teams have been complimentary of each other. However there has been some back and forth talk between the Ravens offense and defense. Joe Flacco is under enormous pressure to have a big game in this kind of spotlight. Could this be Ray Lewis and Ed Reed last game?
The home team has won and covered 3 straight AFC Championship games. The home team has actually won 5 straight but only covered 4 of them. The over has cashed 3 straight and 6 of the last 7 times.
