    So the best offense they beat was Houston without Andre Johnson. (Walter and Jacoby Jones as a #1 and #2 WR, might as well give up) :D

    The real great offense they faced they got blown out 34-14 against the Chargers.

    That is the drum I have been and will be beating all week. A very good defense, a very proud defense....but a defense that beat up on the offensive sisters of the poor.

    See my sig below.

    Could you post the defensive rankings of the Patriot opponents as well as their end of season win/loss record ?

    Ravens were 12-4 which included 9 games against teams with winning records , 8 games against teams that made the playoffs.

    How'd y'all get to 13-3 ?

    A Patriot Fan using the term Cakewalk Season to describe another team is the definition of irony.

    Excuse me but no. The comparison would be how our OFFENSE scored against opposing defenses and what they're ranking was. Our defense is not our strength, our record-breaking offense is. I hope you can at least agree that your (Balt) defense is it's best hope of winning.

    The thread starter isn't questioning how the Ravens got to their stellar regular season record, he's mereley pointing out that you guys are getting a lot of credit for having a fantastic defense, but based on the offenses you have faced, that might not be the case. That is all. The only time Baltimore played against a team that's even remotely comparable to the Patriots offensively they got completely abused.

    How the Pats get to 13-3 and to the AFCCG AT HOME?

    By having the best record in the AFC and beating 8 teams who would have had winning records had they not played the Patriots.

    A better question: How in the world did YOUR team NOT get the highest seed while going 8-0 at home???????

    MIA - 20th
    Bills - 14th
    Average 17.38
    vs Ravens average of 21

    I don't think the title of this thread is on point. It's a reflection of the lack of quality offenses faced and how it makes their defense look better than it actually is, it's not meant to simply suggest they had an easy schedule.

    If the patriots don't screw up their execution they'll put more points on the board than any other team that has faced the Ravens this year (35+). Flacco won't put up 30+ on this defense, only a complete breakdown of the Patriots offensive line would do them in. Unfortunately that has been the main reason why the Pats have had playoff troubles recently (though it has been a more widespread breakdown the last 2 seasons).

    Did you want us to go 16-0 ?

    Based on their record against sub .500 teams prior to this year.. that is what would have happened if that had been maintained !

    Is it possible that the quality of the teams that the Patriots have played makes their offense look better than it actually is ?

    I would love to see the stats. Could someone oblige ?

    You're crazy if you think the Ravens are going to allow the Patriots to score 35 points on them in a playoff game.

    What are you hoping for ? 3+ turnovers in the redzone ?

    :)

    The Pats opponents averaged an 18.75 ranking of defense (points allowed). That's barely below average.
    The Raven's (who average almost 9 less points per game than the pats, which influences opponents defensive rankings) averaged facing 13.25.

    So the Pats have faced defenses that average giving up 22.4 Points, while scoring 32.1 PPG. That's +9.7 PPG. That would put the Pats at about 26 points against the Ravens defense, all things equal. But all things aren't equal. The pats offensive output is reflected in the defense rankings faced combined with the fact that the Ravens have faced easier offenses. Add in the fact that this offense is peaking and has been improving week to week since Nov 13th, I think 35+/- is a solid line.

    Of course the game has to be played and it will all come down to execution, but if we execute, I don't see any reason why we shouldn't be able to put up 35. The Patriots have been the best offensive team in the NFL the last 5 years after all and I'd argue they have been the most consistent, game to game, this year. I think a big factor in that has been our TE play. It's near impossible to shutdown Welker, 2 elite TEs, Branch, and a running game, and is impossible when Brady has time. This game is really going to be as simple as can they get to Brady consistently. I think our O-line is much improved to the point that only a "bad day" from 2+ olinemen will destroy the Pats. So again, it just comes down to execution.

    hmm.. maybe we should ask the Giants or Pittsburgh.. oh right.. your offense is peaking.. and our defense is stagnant..

    The Patriots might struggle to score 20+ points.. if the Ravens execute that is..

    Problem is the Patriots might score 30 and still lose, with the defense they have..

    (Boldin, Evans, Smith, Pitta, Dickson, Ray Rice, Leach) is no joke against a bottom half defense.

    Its tough sledding.

    Y'all better hope you can get to Flacco with a 4 man rush

    :)

    The Patriots have allowed 30+ points once this year. And it took 4 Brady picks and terrible PI by Sergio Brown in the end zone for a hot at the time Buffalo offense to get there.

    And your defense is not exactly out performing NE's over the past 4 games. They are both allowing 19PPG over that span. On the other hand Brady's offense has put up 40+ in 3 of the last 4. The only game he didn't was against Miami where our line went through a complete rebuild process about 45 minutes before the game and then once again two drives into the game. Needless to say the protection was rough through the first half. They make some adjustments and the line settles in and they put up 27 points in the second half.

    Great post.

    The cakewalk pass defense schedule I'd been citing for Green Bay proved its meaning this past weekend. Hopefully the Ravens equally easy schedule - especially in terms of the offenses it faced - will mean something to us Sunday.
