FIRST QUARTER

15:00- The Ravens will begin the night on offense. This is what we have been waiting to see all week. 1st & 10…

14:55- Two-yard on the catch out of the RPO look; 2nd & 8…

14:10- Ingram takes it for three; 3rd & 5…

13:42- Brown makes the catch on the athletic play by Jackson; he was basically tackled. 1st & 10…

12:58- Corner has the pitch man on option, but he was nowhere to be found and the Ravens pick up 11 on the run; 1st & 10…

12:26- Brown takes the jet sweep 25 yards; Patriots are struggling. 1st & 10…

12:00- Jackson rips off six more; 2nd & 4…

11:15- The Ravens are putting on a clinic right now; the Ravens use an H-back to get in the flat for 10 more; 1st & 10…

10:30- Six more for Jackson; the Patriots need to change things up. 2nd & 4…

9:56- Ingram for two; 3rd & 2…

9:15- Foolish playcall by the Ravens is to the Patriots advantage; why run a dive out of gun? Use RPO with Jackson…Well, it doesn’t matter because the Patriots jumped offside. AWFUL start for the Patriots. 1st & Goal…

8:13- Touchdown, Ravens. Guess what they ran? RPO, which became an easy run to the left for a touchdown. New England’s defense looked completely outmatched on the drive, and if they don’t wake up, they will get their doors blown off tonight. Ravens 7, Patriots 0

8:10- Brady sails the first pass of the night; 2nd & 10…

8:04- Brady misses Sanu on the deep ball; the Ravens are depending on four to get a rush, deploying d-backs everywhere. 3rd & 10…

8:00- Ugly first series as Brady is forced to throw it away. Now the defense that just got rolled has to come back on the field and deal with this Ravens offense again. This is the worst start the Patriots could have imagined. Ravens 7, Patriots 0

7:49- 12-yard run by Ingram as the Patriots continue to get gashed. 1st & 10…

7:01- Eight yard gain on the throw; 2nd & 2…

6:22- Pass is deflected and almost picked but to no avail; 3rd & 2…

6:17- Andrews gains four and another Ravens’ first down; 1st & 10 from the 50…

5:42- Jackson runs for 20 on the option; 1st & 10…

4:55- Six more for Jackson; 2nd & 4…

4:34- Ingram runs for five more; 1st & 10…

3:56- Ingram for one, Hightower with the tackle; 2nd & 9…

3:19- Jackson is sacked for a loss of one; 3rd & 10…

2:33- Jackson makes an Uncle Rico-style throw off his tackles helmet and that forces the field goal attempt, which of course was good because Justin Tucker is the best kicker in football. It was nice the see the Patriots defense tighten up in the red zone. Ravens 10, Patriots 0

2:22- Michel runs for 10; 1st & 10…

2:03- Michel runs for four more; 2nd & 6…

1:48- No gain by Michel; 3rd & 7…

1:21- Brady is sacked. This is gross. 4th & 7…

:41- Seven-yard gain by Boyle; 2nd & 3…

:09- Neutral zone infraction, again; 1st & 10…that is the end of the first quarter, a quarter COMPLETELY dominated by the Ravens. Baltimore 10, New England 0

SECOND QUARTER

15:00- Ingram runs for 53; 1st & 10 from the Patriots 12. The Patriots run defense getting gashed last week was not a blip on the radar.

14:06- Touchdown, Ravens. Another 12-yard run and the Patriots should be ashamed of themselves. They are getting thrown around out there. Ravens 17, Patriots 0

14:00- Dorsett picks up six on the catch; 2nd & 4…

13:33- Burkhead picks up two; 3rd & 2…

12:50- Incomplete. The offense certainly is NOT HELPING the defense whatsoever.

12:41- FUMBLE!! PATRIOTS RECOVER! Old friend Cyrus Jones fumbles and gives the Patriots life.

12:25- White takes the pass to the flat to the five; 1st & Goal…

12:11- Pass is incomplete to Dorsett; 2nd & Goal…

12:07- Brady throws it away; they have been awful in the red zone this season. 3rd & Goal…

12:02- TOUCHDOWN, PATRIOTS!! Sanu makes his first touchdown catch as a Patriot, a MUCH needed touchdown to make this a game again. Let’s see if the defense can tighten up and stop the run. Ravens 17, Patriots 7

11:38- After a gain of two, Ravens face 2nd & 8…

11:18- Jackson eludes pressure, but he overthrows his target deep; 3rd & 8…

11:10- Finally! The Patriots defense stepped up and played THEIR defense and forced a punt doing so; the punt was downed at the New England 25. 1st & 10, Patriots…

10:07- Michel picks up 14 on the catch; 1st & 10 from their own 39…

9:27- Sanu on the crossing route for 10; 1st & 10 from the 50…

9:12- Edelman picks up 13 on the athletic catch and run; 1st & 10 from the Ravens 37…

8:40- Michel runs for five more; 2nd & 5…

8:02- Brady wants a DPI, but to no avail; 3rd & 5…AWFUL intentional grounding called instead. 3rd & 15…

7:55- Dorsett appeared to have a first down, but of course the Patriots were called for a hold. That last penalty completely screwed this drive, and now Newhouse kills the drive for good with a hold. He is terrible. 3rd & 25…

7:30- A fumble is called, but it definitely was not a fumble. 4th & 9 from the 37…the Patriots will punt, and they down it at the Ravens six-yard line. Bailey is one hell of a punter. Ravens 17, Patriots 7

7:10- Edwards runs for five; 2nd & 5…

6:29- FUMBLE!! Patriots recover! 1st & 10 from the 19…

5:59- Sanu for 12 on the catch; 1st & Goal…

4:51- After a hold on Mason, the Patriots pick up three; 2nd & Goal…

4:25- Brady eludes pressure and finds Edelman at the four; 3rd & Goal…

3:44- Brady forces it to Edelman, and the Patriots are forced to attempt the field goal. 4th & Goal…

3:41- FIELD GOAL, PATRIOTS! Folk connects for three, although that is not what the Patriots wanted in that situation. They need to step up on defense again and not allow the Ravens to score before the end of the half. Ravens 17, Patriots 10

3:31- Snead picks up eight on the catch; 2nd & 2…

2:55-Edwards runs for four; 1st & 10…

2:15- Hightower played the QB sweep perfectly, stopping Jackson for no gain; 2nd & 10…

1:56- Hightower with another tackle after a gain of four; 3rd & 6…

1:51- Butler knocks it down and forces the Ravens to punt; it appears the Patriots defense has settled in and can now get stops. This game could get interesting going forward. Ravens 17, Patriots 10

8:18- White to the one…

8:03- TOUCHDOWN, PATRIOTS!! THAT WAS A CLINIC! Wow. The no-huddle just destroyed the Ravens; if the defense can keep the Ravens in check, the Patriots have a very good chance to win this game because it doesn’t appear that the Ravens have any chance to stop this no-huddle offense unless they fumble again. Ravens 24, Patriots 20

:24- No gain on the run by Jackson; 2nd & Goal…that is the end of the third quarter. The Patriots dominated play for the most part, but turnovers will kill you, and the Edelman fumble may be the deciding factor in tonight’s game. Ravens 24, Patriots 20
