Patriots Vs. Ravens Score Update: Ravens Even Things Up At 3-3

The Ravens have managed to even the score at 3-3 in the second quarter after Tom Brady's interception late in the first.

Given strong field position for the first time after Tom Brady's ill-advised pass to Julian Edelman ended up in the hands of a leaping Lardarius Webb, the Ravens came out firing. A play-action pass drew the attention of safety Patrick Chung, opening up a great deal of space for receiver Torrey Smith. While Flacco's pass was imperfect, Smith was able to make his way back to it, bringing the Ravens all the way to New England's 30-yard line. Not long after, and he added on another 14 yards to bring the Ravens into the red zone.

While the Patriots' defense hasn't looked like its usual self so far in the playoffs, getting big pressure and forcing quick punts, they brought out some of the old bend-don't-break for this drive. Forcing the Ravens into a 3rd-and-6 as the first quarter ended, they held the Ravens just shy of the first down marker on the first play of the second quarter. Though John Harbaugh took some time to think about going for it, ultimately they turned to Billy Cundiff to put the ball through the uprights instead.

Tom Brady will have to shake off the dust after his interception and get back to work, once again facing a tie game.
