UPDATED: Predict the Score: Patriots-Ravens for the AFC Championship

In a rematch of last year's conference title game, New England hosts Baltimore for the second year in a row. Will it turn out 23-20 Patriots like last year? Add your prediction in the comment section.

UPDATE: Well, it was just Bill and me who even picked the Ravens, who, as we all know too well, won 28-13. I'm not sure how to pick who was closer between my pick of 28-24 Ravens and Bill's pick of 27-24 Ravens. I think you could argue that either way.

Thanks, everyone, for the predictions.


Once again, the road to the Super Bowl goes through Foxborough.

On Sunday at 6:30 p.m., in a rematch of last year's AFC championship, Baltimore comes to Gillette Stadium to tackle New England.

Last year's battle ended memorably when Pro Bowl Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff missed a short field goal that would have sent the game into overtime. The Patriots won 23-20.

This year, the Patriots are an 8.5 point favorite to reach their second straight Super Bowl. The over/under is 51, as Vegas expects the trend of high-scoring playoff games to continue.

I was born in Baltimore, so I'll enrage everyone and pick:

Ravens 28 Patriots 24

What's your prediction for the score this year? No prizes, but we'll circle back after the game and give props to the person who was closest.

Was that Brady or Romo?
Bill January 21, 2013 at 11:59 AM
Just a friendly reminder I was the only one to pick the Ravens to win. They were getting 9 points. Thanks Brady for the easy money.

Thanks, Bill. I've updated the story. You and I were the only ones to pick the Ravens. And, as you'll see in the story text I added at the top, I'm not sure how to choose whether 28-24 or 27-24 was the closer pick. And thanks, everyone, for the predictions.

Hi chris, don't know how your site works but my first post was made @ 7:10pm sat and has been pending approval since, oversite by someone. Doesn't matter game's over anyway.
Bill January 23, 2013 at 04:42 PM
Ahh..Sorry Chris, didn't see it in your original story. Not sad for me, not a Pats fan, not one bit...
