NFL playoff schedule 2013: Ravens-Patriots meet for right to play 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII

New, comments

The second game of the day. The Baltimore Ravens visit the New England Patriots in Gillette Stadium in the 2013 AFC Championship game. The winner will play the San Francisco 49ers in the 2013 Super Bowl.

The 49ers beat the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship game so now we turn our attention to the AFC Championship where the Patriots host the Ravens. These two teams met in this same game last year, which the Patriots won, earning them a trip to the 2012 Super Bowl where they lost to the New York Giants.

The winner of this game will play Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers in Super Bowl 47.

My official pick in this game is the Patriots. I just don't see how anyone can stop their no-huddle offense. No one has been able to do it consistently so I'd be curious how the Ravens expect to stop it.

Here is all the pertinent info for the AFC Championship game:
