    Brady Does it Again


    Once again Tom Brady is the bane of the Baltimore Ravens after leading the Patriots to a game-winning touchdown drive late the in the 4th quarter in Baltimore. He was accurate the entire day completing around 70 percent of his passes including the late touchdown to Brandon Lloyd. Both Lloyd and Wes Welker had well over 100 yards receiving as Brady moved the ball well through the air for the duration of the game. Brady did not target TE Rob Gronkowski often, as he was used to block and stop the pass rush, which got to Brady on occasion in the first half. Starting Patriots RB Brandon Jacobs did have a touchdown, but was held to under 50 yards rushing.

    For the Ravens, it was a tale of turnovers. 2 out of the first 3 games QB Joe Flacco has thrown 4 INTs. This game in particular his 4th INT came on the first play of the Ravens last drive, sealing the win for the Patriots. One bright spot for the Ravens was RB Ray Rice. Rice ran for over 150 yards and a score in the narrow defeat. WR Anquan Boldin also had a strong game for the Ravens with nearly 100 yards receiving. The Ravens offense must improve on third and short, as it was only 2-5 in 3rd and 3 or less to go situations in the game. If the Ravens can cut down on turnovers they should get back to their winning ways.
