The New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens clash on Sunday in an AFC Championship rematch.

On Sunday night, the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens will square off in a much-anticipated battle of two AFC powers.

The Patriots are coming off of a brutal loss in their home opener against the Arizona Cardinals. Stephen Gostkowski had an opportunity to win the game with a 42-yard field goal but couldn't connect.

Baltimore is also trying to recover from a defeat. The Ravens had a chance to become 2-0 but couldn't overcome the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, losing 24-23.

In this match-up, all four experts at Yahoo.com are taking the Ravens in M&T Bank Stadium. After the way Joe Flacco and co. dispatched the Cincinnati Bengals in their season debut, it's not hard to see their reasoning.

Over at ESPN.com, every man making a pick is also siding with the Ravens with the exception of Mike Ditka.

However, Pete Prisco predicts a New England win on the road, vaulting them to 2-1.
