Can the Baltimore Ravens continue Ray Lewis' "Last Ride" for one more game, or will Tom Brady and the Patriots return to the Super Bowl yet again?

The surprising Baltimore Ravens, fresh off of an exciting double overtime victory over the Denver Broncos, will be looking to extend their run this Sunday when they do battle against the New England Patriots.

The Patriots, on the other hand, will be looking to return to the Super Bowl for the 6th time in the last 12 years.

The Ravens are currently riding the momentum and emotion of Ray Lewis' last year in the NFL. Prior to the playoffs getting underway, Lewis revealed that this would be his last season in the NFL as a player. The Ravens have managed to harness the emotion of this announcement and turn it into two postseason victories, and will be looking to make it a third this Sunday against the Patriots.

If there is one team that is not scared about travelling to New England to play in a conference championship game, it's the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens have won in New England before, and they believe that they can do it again this upcoming weekend.

The Patriots own the league's most potent offense, but their offensive attack will be hindered slightly thanks to the injury of Rob Gronkowski. Gronkowski injured his arm in the Patriots' victory over the Texans this past weekend.

New England is 7-2-0 at home this season (including the playoffs), while the Ravens are 5-4-0 on the road (including their victory over the Broncos).

As you can imagine, the Patriots are favored to beat the Ravens this Sunday. Here are the current betting odds:

New England Patriots, -10, +115

There are a number of people in the media who believe that Baltimore has a good chance of winning this game straight up. What do you think?
