AFC Championship Game 2013: Ravens vs. Patriots open thread

More football! Football on football on football!

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

It's time for the second game of the day, where Ray Lewis will attempt to delay his retirement party. The Baltimore Ravens travel to 'greater Boston' to take on the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game, and the winner will advance to the Super Bowl to play ... well, I have no idea! This is a scheduled post! I wrote this right before I went to the bar to watch the early game.

For the first time in ever, I believe in Joe Flacco. I think he just needed to make a big play in a playoff win to get over the hump and start playing like a star. We've all laughed at what he's said about being elite, but he can obviously throw the heck out of the ball. He's just dumb in the playoffs. Fans of other AFC North teams can thank Rahim Moore for transforming Flacco.

Game date/time: Sunday, 5:30 p.m. CT, 6:30 p.m. local

Venue: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA


Announcers: Jim Nantz, Phil Simms
