Ravens Vs. Patriots Final Score: New England Adds Baltimore To List Of Victories On Way To Super Bowl XLVI Berth

The New England Patriots are back in the Super Bowl for the first time since 2008, the year the Patriots went undefeated right up until they lost the big game. On Saturday, the Patriots defeated the Baltimore Ravens, 23-20, but they needed to sweat out the victory.

Joe Flacco led the Ravens on a two-minute drive with the chance to win the game. Flacco converted a 3rd-and-1 for a big gain to reach the 23-yard line of the Patriots. But the drive stalled. A potential touchdown catch slipped out of a receiver's hands. Then there was the Billy Cundiff field goal attempt to tie the game. It was a miss:


The Patriots kneeled the ball with seconds left and won the game. I guess the Ravens could have used Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater there. We all know that Prater is cool as ice and copacetic with kicking field goals in such pressure-filled situations.

This sets up a potential rematch in the Super Bowl with the New York Giants should they defeat the New England Patriots.
