#10- The media generally hates on Baltimore, preferring big market teams like NE, SF, and NY!
#9- Ed Reed’s banged up! Ray Lewis is too old and slow!
#8- The media will hype up how the Ravens couldn’t beat sub-par teams on the road this year…how will they win at New England?
#7- Tom Brady is hungry for one more title, after playoff losses to: The Jets in 2011, the Ravens at home in 2009, the Giants in the 2007 Superbowl, the Colts in 2006, and the Broncos in 2005.
#6- Trouble with QB T.J Yates at home? How can the Ravens beat Tom Brady on the road?
#5- Ravens coming off an unimpressive 20-13 win against Houston.
#4- New England has too many weapons on offense… the Ravens can’t stop Gronkowski, Welker, Hernandez, and Branch!
#3- The Brilliance of Bilichick!
#2- All time great Tom Brady coming off a playoff record 6 TD and 1 INT performance…threw for over 5,000 yards/ 39 TDs/12 INTS in the regular season.
#1- Win at New England with Joe Flacco? (Who just completed only 14 passes for 176 yards at home against Houston, and had his worst season statistically in 3 years?)…. He’s just not an elite QB!!!!
