The New England Patriots are field goal underdogs to the Baltimore Ravens in their Sunday Night Football matchup.

The New England Patriots find themselves in unfamiliar territory this weekend. They opened even, but they are currently underdogs to the Baltimore Ravens. The line is set at 2.5 to 3 points as New England makes their trip to Baltimore in a rematch of last year's AFC Championship Game.

Both teams had triumphant Week 1 victories, but they fell back to Earth in Week 2. The Patriots are coming off a pretty sloppy loss to the Arizona Cardinals at home last weekend, as New England's offense was overwhelmed by Arizona's defense. The Ravens had similar issues in their loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, as their usually strong defense struggled to hold down Michael Vick in their comeback bid.

It figures the line is small since both teams figured to be evenly matched. Last year's AFC championship went down to the final seconds, but Baltimore dropped a game-winning touchdown in the end zone and missed the game winning field goal.
