NFL playoffs schedule 2013: Pats face Ravens in AFC Championship game

Tom Brady will try to lead the New England Patriots to the Super Bowl for the sixth time in his career as they square off against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship game for the second straight season.


The New England Patriots have a chance to go to the Super Bowl for the second year in a row, and to do so, they'll need to beat the Baltimore Ravens for a second straight season.

Last year's AFC Championship game went to the Pats when Billy Cundiff missed a potential game-tying field goal, allowing New England to move on to play for a title. The teams met again this season, and again it came down to a last-second kick, but this time, Ravens rookie Justin Tucker drilled a game-winner to give his team a 31-30 win.

The Patriots have won 10 of 11, including an easy 41-28 win over the Houston Texans in the divisional round. The Ravens needed a miraculous 70-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Jacoby Jones with less than a minute left in regulation before advancing in a rare double overtime game, beating the Denver Broncos 38-35.

On the other side, the San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons square off.
