Based on the way the Ravens and Patriots play each other, Sunday's game easily could come down to another field-goal try.
Last season in the AFC title game, that didn't work out well for the Ravens. Then-kicker Billy Cundiff shanked a 32-yarder that could've forced overtime. Instead, the Patriots won 23-20 at home and went to the Super Bowl.
In 2010, the Patriots won by the same score at home in the regular season.
In 2009, the Patriots won 27-21 at home again, but the Ravens got revenge in the playoffs with a 33-14 rout.
In 2007, one season before Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco's arrival, the Patriots won 27-24 in Baltimore.
Last week, the Patriots lined up for a 42-yarder for Stephen Gostkowski with one second left. The kick never had a chance as it sailed immediately wide left as they lost 20-18 to the Arizona Cardinals.
If this game comes down to a field goal again, does that mean advantage Baltimore?
"What I did last week or Week 1 or whatever, will not affect me the next game, negatively or positively," Gostkowski told CSNNE.com. "You just move on. If you do well, you can get too big of a head. And if you do bad, you can get down on yourself. You've just got to have a short memory. And if you want to last long on a team or in the NFL, you've got to have a short memory, good or bad."
For the Ravens, Cundiff is gone and rookie Justin Tucker, who beat him out in training camp with greater accuracy and a stronger leg, has been picture perfect.
Tucker made all three field goals in a 24-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, two of them coming from 51 and 56. He's 6-for-6 for the season.
"He was making good ball contact," special teams coach Jerry Rosburg said of Tucker. "The ball was traveling straight and as you saw he had plenty of range."
