2012 NFL Playoff Schedule And Bracket Update: Ravens Join Patriots In AFC Championship

A late interception from the Baltimore Ravens future Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed wrapped up a win over the Houston Texans in the AFC Divisional round of the playoffs. The Ravens punched their ticket to the AFC Championship with a 20-13 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon. It's the first time the Ravens will battle for the AFC Championship since the 2008 season.

Baltimore lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the eventual Super Bowl champs, in their last trip that deep into the playoffs. This time, they will travel to face a red hot New England Patriots team, one almost guaranteed to score more points than the Houston Texans.
