The Baltimore Ravens are in New England to face the Patriots Monday night in a Week 14 matchup.
The Ravens (7-5) are 4-1 since their bye week and coming off a clobbering of the Miami Dolphins. The Ravens have won four of their last five, and they're looking to keep the momentum going against the Patriots and beat out the Steelers to score an AFC North title.
The Patriots, though, are a tough opponent. They're 10-2 and have won three straight since losing to the Seahawks in Week 10. The Ravens are capable of pulling off the upset, but it won't be easy.
There aren't many tougher tasks in NFL football than facing Bill Belichick and the Patriots offense. Tight end Rob Gronkowski is done for the season because of back surgery, but the offense is still dangerous. Tom Brady, Martellus Bennett and LeGarrette Blount will challenge the Ravens' No. 1-ranked defense.
The Ravens will need to be firing on all cylinders if they want to come away with a win.
Ravens vs. Patriots kicks off at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN on Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
