Ravens Run Over Patriots 33-14

Prior to today's game, the thought was that if the Baltimore Ravens were going to have any chance to beat the New England Patriots, it would only happen if QB Joe Flacco  had a good game for them. Instead, Flacco barely contributed to the Ravens 33-14 victory as the team instead rushed for over 230 yards, led by Ray Rice's 160 yards and two scores, including the game opening 83 yard TD scamper. Flacco finished 4 of 10 for 34 yards, although he still had a couple of key completions and a huge first down run to set up the team's final touchdown.

Next the Ravens get to rest up for more post season football as they will travel up to face the Indianapolis Colts and try to exact the same type of revenge they sought and got today. After playing perhaps their most complete game of the season, much less in team history, this might be the biggest victory since the Super Bowl, as barely anyone other than The Beatdown predicted a Ravens victory in the local or national media.

So much more to follow but this is a great time to put down your post game thoughts and revel in a great statement to the rest of the league and especially the hopefully too well rested Indianapolis Colts. Great game RAVENS!
