2012 NFL Playoff Scores: Ravens Advance To AFC Title Game After 20-13 Victory Over Texans

The Baltimore Ravens will play the New England Patriots in the 2012 AFC Title game next weekend following a 20-13 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon. It will be the Ravens' first trip to the conference title game since the 2008 season when they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, who won the Super Bowl that season. The only other time the Ravens made the conference championship was during the 2000 season, which ended with them hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.

The Ravens defense was at its usual high level of performance with three interceptions, one by Ed Reed and two by Lardarius Webb. Reed, though, went down with an injury with just seconds left on the clock. T.J. Yates threw all three of those interceptions for the Texans and was 17-of-35 for 184 yards in the game. Joe Flacco was 14-of-27 passing, but he did throw both touchdown passes.

Baltimore will visit the Patriots next Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA. Kickoff will be shortly after 1:00 p.m. MT.
