    I went 31-16 (possibly 19)...it will be pretty close fought, but I think the Ravens offense might struggle....if they do then I see a few FGs going on the board! The Pats will pull away in the 4th.

    I have no clue. It depends how the players play and how the coaches coach.

    I can't vote! My choice is the Pats will win by a comfortable margin, say between 10-13 points.

    That would be "close" by Patriot Standards...

    The line is low still right, 7.5? Crazy low. This is at least a 3 TD win.

    I said blowout because I think they'll win by 10.

    I'm not normally this confident but I think the Patriots are peaking at just the right time and our defense is coming together and will generate more pressure than Baltimore.

    I'm going to be the spoiler here and say they lose a close one because of the defense. I just don't feel confident about them going up against the Baltimore D and I still don't like this D in a close game. I was very confident against Denver and thought they were an easy match up, but this is a very good Baltimore team. Hopefully I am wrong and they blow them out like many are predicting. I just don't see it.

    Ravens are good but nobody is beating the Patriots this year. This is a blowout.

    Don't forget this Ravens team beat Pitt twice this year home and road.
    This team is no joke.
    Field goal either way. my prediction.

    I think the final score LOOKS like a blowout (+12 to +18); but it will be hard fought through 3Qs and we will be biting our nails.

    even if Pats have a 14 pt lead in the 2Q; just because of the number of leads we have watched vanish throughout the season - this one will keep us on the edge of our seats.

    I would just remember too that the Denver game is the only game in the last (seems like) 4 that they have come out hot to start. Ravens could very well have a lead early in this game. But I think by end of first half Pats are in charge.

    These topics just beg for homer predictions sooo....33-3 BAL, in a blowout, Suggs with a pick 6, 2 sacks, and a FF. BAL kicker outscores our O 12-3.

    I'm gonna say 28-21 Patriots....... Which while some will consider it close being a 1 score game. But I think its one of the those "Feels like a blow out" games.

    We go up 28-14 by the 4th quarter and hold on until a late "garbage time" TD in the last minute or two.

    I chose #1, both because it's what I hope will happen, and I also believe it will happen.

    I voted close game because a blowout to me means at least 3 scores and I think it will be 2, Patriots by 10.

    This is the best I have felt about a Ravens game in years, I think the Ravens OL is a problem and that is a bad problem to have in big games, just ask the packers. their defense, while good, is not as good as those brady has faced in the past. I also think that while the Ravens have a better chance of winning if their offense plays well that the Patriots will absolutely win if their defense plays well.

    Last point-Belichik is 3-1 in Super Bowls and 4-1 in Conference Championship games, so he clearly knows how to approach them and win them, Harbaugh, as good a coach as he is has yet to show he can win a big game.

    I'm afraid Brady will struggle early against the Ravens D.
    I think it will be close.
    People are taking way too much from the Broncos game.

    I'm drinking the Kool aid, guzzling the wine, whatever. I say Brady is on a mission, the last hurrah. He has weapons like never before and good linemen sitting on the bench. The defense has two new starters and is two wins away from WC.

    I haven't felt confident in the Patriots all year because of their defense. But that's all changed now. I think they really have turned the corner and are a slightly above average defense right now. Along with a high-powered offense that can score on anybody (as long as Tom Brady gets some OL protection), I'm thinking blow-out. Particularly since the Ravens have been less than impressive recently and have significantly worse performances on the road.

    I think its hard to read abt the defense vs denver.That was a pathetic offense. Look what miami and buffalo did in the beginning of the games. For that matter even rex grossman. I still have doubts about the defense.

    I voted with my heart instead of my head on this one and predicted a Pats' blowout. I just get the feeling this team is on a mission to prove everyone wrong. People have been trashing this team especially their defense for months and calling them one and done in the playoffs. I think this team is fired up to win the Super Bowl because of this and honoring Myra Kraft's memory.

    Last week the Pats totally crushed an inferior opponent with a focus and passion we haven't seen by many teams very often. I think that is the way they come out against the Ravens.

    I'm thinking the Pats are comfortably (10-17 points) in the lead for most of this one. A late score by either team will make the final score look a little different than it really was.

    I just can't take anything from the Denver game. Tebow is horrible. Stopping him is no great accomplishment. I think our defense is going to get lit up. That said, I have alot of confidence in this offense. The TE's are going to make it very hard to blitz and send linebackers. Brady can screen and dink/dunk all day if the birds get too agressive. If they can make life uncomfortable with just 4 guys, this could be a long day.

    28-24 Pats, including a defensive or ST score somewhere along the way.
