Ravens rock Foxboro

On Saturday, January 9, the Baltimore Ravens stepped on the field with a purpose. They shut down the Patriots and Tom Brady. They weren’t ready for the Ravens 46 defense. Brady was 23 for 42 with, 154 yards and 2 touchdowns. But the most shocking events of the game were the three interceptions made by Brady. Brady hasn’t thrown three interceptions since the 2007 AFC championship win against the San Diego Chargers.

On the other hand, second year QB Joe Flaco didn’t have a good day either. He was 4 for 10, 34 yards and 1 interception. But he didn’t need to have a good day. He has RB Ray Rice in the backfield. Rice was a monster running the ball. Rice ran for 159 yards and 2 touchdowns on 20 carries. But Rice wasn’t the only one running the ball hard, Willis McGahee and Le’Ron McClain combined for 2 touchdowns and 70 yards on 24 carries.

The Ravens are now going on to play Indianapolis, to play the Colts with the hope to shut down probably one of the games best QB’s,  Payton Manning. All the Ravens can do is hope for the defense to hold and the offense to score and their rout to the Super Bowl continues.
