What a way to end many people’s week one in the fantasy football playoffs. It heads to Foxboro as the New England Patriots take on the Baltimore Ravens in a battle of potential AFC playoff contenders.
Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots (-7)
Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, Massachusetts
6:25pm Arizona Time
The Patriots being seven point home favorites seems reasonable, until you remember their two losses on the season were both at home.
It will be interesting to see what you get from this game. The Ravens have been excellent this season on defense, but there is not a single team better in the NFL in exploiting a teams weakness on defense than the New England Patriots and Tom Brady.
Meanwhile, can the Ravens offense find a consistent approach and can Joe Flacco keep them in the game?
It is going to be one of those games where you expect the Patriots to roll, but for some reason the Ravens seem, week in and week out, to get the job done.
I think the Pats win, but in a close game.
