Ravens Vs. Patriots, 2012 AFC Championship Game: Once More, A New England Field Goal

The New England Patriots began their second half against the Baltimore Ravens in the 2012 AFC Championship Game about where they ended the first half: in the red zone, kicking a field goal. Stephen Gostkowski's third three-pointer of the day gave New England a 16-10 lead early in the third quarter against Baltimore.

Tom Brady has had plenty of success for the Patriots when throwing underneath and trying to pick up yardage, but has been less successful when throwing deep. He's 17-for-28 for 178 yards on the day, with just one completion of 20 yards.

On the bright side, Brady is finding time to chirp at Ray Lewis, which is probably a great thing to do when Lewis is allowed to hit him.
