AFC Championship 2013 schedule: Patriots take on Ravens in rematch

Al Bello

The New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens meet in the AFC Championship game for the second-straight season. Their last two games have come down to game-ending kicks.

The New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens square off in the AFC Championship Game for the second-straight season, as the Patriots try to advance to the Super Bowl for the second-straight year.

The past two games between these two teams have come down to the ability of the Baltimore Ravens' placekickers. Last season, the Pats took a 23-20 lead despite Tom Brady throwing two interceptions, but when the Ravens got the ball to the 17-yard line, Billy Cundiff shanked a potential game-tying field goal and the Patriots advanced. Then, in Week 3, the teams met in a game that lived up to the hype of a championship game rematch. Torrey Smith caught two touchdowns, but it was a 27-yard field goal by rookie Justin Tucker that gave Baltimore the win.

Tucker's leg was needed again last week, as he ended a double-overtime game with a 47-yarder to allow the Ravens to advance over the Denver Broncos, extending Ray Lewis' career another game. Joe Flacco only completed 18-of-34 passes, but threw three touchdowns and zero picks, a bad sign for a Pats defense whose secondary has been its main weakness during the season. New England looked ready for the postseason as they romped, 38-23, over the Houston Texans.

Here's the info on the game and how to catch it:
