2013 AFC Championship Game: A Look Back

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

From NFL Communications, check out all these interesting facts about the AFC Championship Game and the Baltimore Ravens.

The Baltimore Ravens earned a 28-13 victory in the AFC Championship Game at the New England Patriots, a rematch of last year's AFC Championship Game and a Week 3 Ravens'home win (31-30). It marked the 11th tie in 16 opportunities since 1990 that a team won the AFC Championship Game against an opponent it defeated in the regular season.

Baltimore (9-5, .643), which advanced to the Super Bowl for the second time in franchise history (Super Bowl XXXV), improved its NFL-best postseason road winning percentage (minimum 10 games) with a victory at New England. The next best road winning percentage belongs to the Patriots (7-9, .438).

The 2012 AFC Championship Game marked the second time in NFL history a Super Bowl MVP quarterback (Tom Brady, Super Bowls 36 and 38) and MVP linebacker (Ray Lewis, Super Bowl 35) played each other in a Conference Championship Game. The only other occurrence was when the two players faced off in last year's AFC Championship Game.

The AFC and NFL Championship Games ranked as TV's most-watched programs since Super Bowl 46. The Baltimore Ravens-New England Patriots AFC Championship Game on CBS drew 47.7 million viewers, based on The Nielsen Company's Fast National ratings. The San Francisco 49ers-Atlanta Falcons NFC Championship Game on FOX drew 42.0 million viewers. This marks the fourth consecutive year that each conference championship game drew 41 million viewers.
