Game Day Guides: Ravens Look for Redemption in New England this Time Around
The saga continues between these two opponents. Building a rivalry in its own way, the clash inevitably has becomes a postseason rendezvous one way or another. Last year, the Ravens were a catch or kick away from advancing to the big game. Which ever way you look at it, the past is the past and the future is determined by the present.
With kickoff primed for 6:30PM (Eastern Time), the Baltimore Ravens and their loyalty will head North to take on the New England Patriots. As the buzz is centered around whether or not this will be Ray Lewis’ last NFL game, you can be sure Lewis is anticipating his February date night in New Orleans. However, and routinely so, Tom Brady looks to plan his reservation yet again. Five out of the last 6 meetings between these foes have been decided by six points or less, and the story for this years AFC Championship game may only add to the rivalry.
The extended drive up I-95 N is well worth the trip. Gillette Stadium, in Foxborough, MA, southwest of Boston, should come as a familiarity to Raven fans, especially for those who took the hike this time last year. And, as expected, the evening come game time will be cool and windy – packing extra clothing would be wise.

Getting to the stadium is easy, using the Patriot Line provided by MBTA, and the $15 round trip fare makes it a fast and easy option for those not opting to drive themselves.
