Week 16 NFL preview: Patriots vs. Ravens

It's a rematch of the AFC Championship Game from the last two years, as the Ravens race for the sixth seed in the AFC while the injury-riddled Patriots are flirting with losing the two-seed and the first-round bye it comes with. Can Tom Brady and the Pats grind out a win on the road, or can Joe Flacco overthrow the Ravens to victory? Matt Ufford and the crew preview the game and make their picks.

The Baltimore Ravens have come back from the dead to put themselves in strong position to earn an AFC wild card. The New England Patriots have slipped recently, putting them in danger of losing out on a first-round playoff bye. With Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins and Rob Gronkowski out, Tom Brady will have a limited tool box as he goes against a solid Ravens defense.
