In the 2011 Divisional Playoff Round, the Baltimore Ravens knocked off the Houston Texans 20-13 while the New England Patriots manhandled the Denver Broncos, 45-10. This season the opponents were switched, but the victors would be the same. On Sunday the Ravens will meet the Patriots again in the AFC Championship game. Both teams are haunted by ghosts of 2011 – a Super Bowl loss for the Patriots and heartbreaking loss for the Ravens to the Patriots. Will this outcome be the same? Most experts say so, but there is a reason they play the game. Anything can happen.
