Patriots vs. Ravens: Sizing 'em up

(Continued)

3. Keep them in front – Play as far back as you have to. You have to make the Ravens beat you without the quick strike. It nearly worked for the Lions on Monday night. The Pats must employ the same tactics.

Hector Longo’s prediction: Patriots 28, Ravens 25 (9-5 straight up; 3-11 vs. the spread)

Analysis: Same thing every week. The Patriots play to the level of the competition, hang in there and put it in Tom Brady’s hands. Most of the time, TB12 delivers. Last week’s last second pick was the exception. This time, Brady delivers in the final minute.
