Put it in the books.
Gronk will be missed the most in short yardage situations, particularly in goal line situations inside the 5 where they bring the tight ends in. Gronk is an outstanding blocker.
I would not be surprised at all to see the Pats run the ball more on the Ravens than in the past against them.
Joe Flacco really plsayed well against the Broncos. If he plays like that, the Ravens will be tough to beat, as their quickness on defense, especially their ability putting pressure on Brady and msake him rush his passes poses problems for them. But the Pats running game is better this year, and I look for BB to maybe cross up the Ravens and try and use their versatile and talented backs more in this game. Ray Rice is no Adrian Foster, but he can be dangerous.
Ravens 28 Pats 24. Flacco might be the most improved QB in the NFL this year and very unheralded... and his contract is up after this year.
The Pats need to start the game in full on no huddle hurry up offense...
Playing a tough 5 quarters at altitude will take some out of them, so the pats need to wear them down early.
