Opening Line: Ravens -3
Time: Sunday September 23, 2012 8:20 PM EST
Last Games: The Patriots lost 20-18 to the Arizona Cardinals and the Ravens lost to the Philadelphia Eagles 24-23.
This Sunday night game pits 2 teams that both lost their last games after winning their season openers. The Pats were shocked last week losing at home to the Arizona Cardinals and with versatile TE Aaron Hernandez lost for a month New England went out and signed TE Kellen Winslow Jr. and WR Deion Branch. The dynamic Patriots' offense looked far from in the loss to the Cardinals and NE only was 5/15 on 3rd down conversion.
Baltimore forced 3 turnovers in the loss to the Eagles, but their defense has not been the dominant unit they have been for the last few seasons and they only rank 27th defending the pass and 20th defending the run. That may really hurt them in this game if the Pats can find their offensive groove.
