Here’s a fun fact for you. The Baltimore Ravens have defeated the New England Patriots more times in the postseason than they have in regular season meetings. That’s right - Baltimore holds a 2-2 record in playoff games against the longtime AFC contenders from the Northeast, but they are just 1-7 overall in the regular season. It’s a weird trend, and one that the Ravens will hope to put behind them tonight with a win.
These two teams square off tonight with playoff positioning on the line. Baltimore entered the week in a tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the lead in the AFC North, but Baltimore holds the tiebreaker with a head-to-head victory. Meanwhile, New England is up by a pair of games on the Miami Dolphins and can take back the top seed in the AFC if they win tonight.
Here are your Monday night details for tonight’s game.
