    A couple of additional things that I've compiled that I find interesting:

    1) The Ravens are the top NFL Red Zone defense, allowing only 38.10% TDs......but strangely enough 50% at home while 30.77% on the road.

    2) The Ravens have had Flacco play action only 15% of plays.

    3) The Ravens, who allow the lowest passer rating versus the blitz, brought five or more rushers 54 percent of the time on third down.

    4) Flacco has a completion rate of 57%. He has completed 60 percent of his throws inside of 10 yards, but beyond that, his completion percentage drops to 38.5 percent.

    5) In the last 21 games that Ray Rice has touched the ball 20 times or more, the Ravens are 20-1

    Everybody makes a big deal about the Ravens road record. Seriously, go undefeated at home and split your road games every year...and your team will be a lock for the post-season at 12-4, and probably win their division.

    I heard on Mike & Mike a couple of days ago that teams are like 3 - 4 in their first playoff game after going 8-0 at home in the regular season. So home field advantage during the regular season doesn't always translate to domination during the playoffs.

    Also, the home team was 4-0 during the wildcard week. The home teams have never gone 8-0 during the wildcard and divisional rounds of the playoffs. So statistics say at least one of the home teams will lose this week. My money is on the Ravens.

    Wow! That's good stuff. The home teams have never gone 8-0 during the wildcard and divisional round.

    So far this weekend the Niners have held serve and the Pats are up by two TDs early in the 2nd quarter.

    Does Green Bay lose or will the loser be.....dun dun dunnnnnn.....the Ravens???

    I wish ESPN would drop the stupid new QBR rating system. It's frustrating reading stuff from them.

    Home field sweep unlikely this weekend.

    Green Bay/Baltimore.

    It could actually be that, in statistical terms, the wild-card/divisional rounds are way overdue for a sweep.

    Just sayin'......

    The criticism doesn't have anything to do with your "road record", I'm pretty sure it's due to the teams you lost to. Jacksonville and St. Louis.

    And that's fine... We're starting a 3rd string rookie and NOBODY is picking us to win this game. they're the ones who are picked to hammer us and are picked to be a shoe in for the AFC Championship game.

    Meh. When we win, Yates is "great". When we lose, it's cause "WE HAD OUR 3RD STRING" :kitten:

    Except they lost to those crappy teams while the season mattered. We lost to them with only seeding involved and half our team gone.

    Not that it didn't matter to us anyway, but the situations aren't nearly comparable.

    We were still playing for a bye week, so yes, all games mattered. Double standards are pretty prevalent in this thread. Really you want to know the only difference this week between our teams? Home field advantage. That's about it. Both teams have stoud defenses, solid run games, and streaky qb play.
