AFC Championship Game, Ravens Vs. Patriots: Troy Brown Thinks Baltimore Defense Will Struggle

The New England Patriots bring a plethora of weapons on offense to take on one of the best defenses in the NFL in the Baltimore Ravens. While Tom Brady has complimented some of the Ravens players, such as safety Ed Reed, by saying their the best he's ever seen at their respective positions. Former Patriots wide receiver Troy Brown however thinks that it's going to be a tough match up for the Ravens defense.

"Here's the great thing about the Patriots -- they can put five guys in those eligible positions and kill you with any of them," Brown told CSNNE. "And Tom Brady's great at finding the mismatch out there. If you leave (Deion) Branch one-on-one, he's going to kill you out there. You can only double a couple guys at a time, basically on the opposite end of the field. You double Welker over here, you double Gronk over there -- Hernandez and Branch are somewhere else one-on-one, so they will absolutely kill you."
