Ravens Vs. Patriots, AFC Championship Game 2012: Troy Brown Says Tom Brady Has Weapons To Win

The Baltimore Ravens have a physical defense complete with four players -- Ed Reed, Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs and Haloti Ngata -- who Tom Brady called among the best ever to play their respective positions. But former Patriots wide receiver Troy Brown believes Baltimore will still struggle to defend the New England Patriots during this weekend's AFC Championship Game.

"Here's the great thing about the Patriots -- they can put five guys in those eligible positions and kill you with any of them," Brown told CSNNE. "And Tom Brady's great at finding the mismatch out there. If you leave (Deion) Branch one-on-one, he's going to kill you out there. You can only double a couple guys at a time, basically on the opposite end of the field. You double Welker over here, you double Gronk over there -- Hernandez and Branch are somewhere else one-on-one, so they will absolutely kill you."
