Ravens vs. Patriots: 3 things that need to go right

January 08, 2010

1. Hit Tom Brady - but only above the knees and below the shoulders. Two roughing-the-passer penalties on the Ravens kept touchdown drives alive for the Patriots in the earlier meeting.

2. Blanket Randy Moss. With Wes Welker sidelined, New England will rely heavily on Moss, the only other Patriots receiver with more than 37 catches.

3. Give the ball to Ray Rice. Sure, Willis McGahee dominated Sunday. But Rice gashed New England the last time, averaging 9.4 yards on 11 carries.
