Ray Rice and the Baltimore Ravens sent the New England Patriots packing in shocking fashion on Sunday, 33-14. Was it a huge upset that New England lost? No. If you studied Baltimore’s resume this season, they’ve played better against quality competition than I don’t know…say Philadelphia?
However, the surprise was the style in which they did it. They were more physical, more emotional and better prepared to handle everything the Patriots threw their way. After losing close games to the Patriots over the last couple of years, Baltimore certainly had some demons to exercise. In short, they wanted it more than New England did.
Next up for Baltimore will be the Indianapolis Colts. The only downer for Baltimore is that Joe Flacco will have to show a pulse for them to win next week.
