ut Rice than the Steelers — yet Bal

It was only a short few weeks ago that the debate was raging across the NFL. Had Tom Brady and Bill Belichick finally met their match? Was the Patriots dominance over the AFC East – and most of the AFC itself -- over. Had Belichick finally outsmarted himself by relying too heavily on Brady without surrounding him with much actual talent? At the time, the Patriots were 2-2 with wins over Oakland and Minnesota, a loss to division rival Miami and an absolute shellacking at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs that produced an avalanche of critics and naysayers. (A confession ... yes, that was yours truly on the Oct. 1st Sportscentre, arguing with Tim Graham that Brady was no longer an elite NFL quarterback, based on his play during the first four weeks of the season.) Since then, New England has rattled off five wins in a row, outscoring opponents by an average of more than 18 points per game. Brady has been restored to his rightful place in the football universe and Patriots once again look like a force that will be hard to stop come December and January, erasing any doubt about what kind of threat they pose to the AFC by trouncing Denver. Before Sunday, the Broncos only loss had come in overtime to Seattle, but Peyton Mannings magic disappeared in New England, as it so often does, against the Bill Belichick defence. A healthy Rob Gronkowski has made a huge difference for New England. But to average more than 40 points per game on a team that was criticized for its lack of overall talent is about as remarkable as the manner in which the Patriots have overcome other injuries over that span. The most obvious answer comes down to coaching, with Sundays win over the Broncos illustrating the two most convincing points in the case for Belichick as the greatest NFL head coach ever. First, the manner in which New England was able to declaw the Broncos offence doesnt speak to the Patriots level of talent as it does to the fact that Belichick sees something in a Manning offence that others arent able to exploit. Secondly, it illustrates a signature of Belichick teams which traditionally get better as a season rolls along. Players improve and emerge between September and December, which is exactly what we saw back in 2001 when the Patriot greatness under Belichick first emerged. In that season, Belichick took a team that had been 5-11 the previous year, overcame an 0-2 start and led it all the way to the Super Bowl with a roster that wasnt exactly full of Hall of Fame players. In fact, the only one may have been the quarterback, a sixth-round pick whom few expected much of when he started and won a game for New England in Week 3 which sparked a remarkable turnaround. The quarterback of the other team that day? None other than Peyton Manning. The same Manning whose Broncos team looked like a sure thing to return to the Super Bowl this season, before being humbled by the Patriots. The Broncos were built to make a Super Bowl run, a veteran team stacked with talent, experience and depth. No one would say that about this edition of the Patriots. But would anyone really be surprised anymore if its them, and not Denver, thats playing for the Super Bowl come February? DeShon Elliott Jersey .

The Patriots, who had a bye in Week 10, will look to continue the offensive success they had a week earlier when New England scored 55 points and racked up 610 yards of total offense in a 55-31 drubbing of the Pittsburgh Steelers.OWINGS MILLS, Md. - During a season filled with suspensions, injuries and painful defeats, the Baltimore Ravens have calmly worked their way into the middle of the AFC playoff picture.The suspension and subsequent release of running back Ray Rice in September was merely the first of many distractions the Ravens (8-5) endured to get where they are now: a half-game behind AFC North leader Cincinnati and in strong contention for a wild-card berth.You could ask for more, but boy, its a great accomplishment to be in that position right now, coach John Harbaugh said Monday.Coming off a deflating 34-33 home loss to San Diego, Baltimore rallied from an early 10-point deficit to beat Miami 28-13 on Sunday. That was the first of four games the Ravens will play without defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, who was suspended on Thursday for using the amphetamine Adderall.Baltimores depleted secondary took another severe hit in Miami when cornerback Danny Gorrer endured a season-ending knee injury. Gorrer was signed in November to fill a secondary that was already feeling the loss of Jimmy Smith (foot), Aaron Ross (heel) and Asa Jackson (toe).The list of players who have sustained season-ending injuries includes starting tight end Dennis Pitta, Smith, Ross, defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore and even long snapper Morgan Cox. In addition, left tackle Eugene Monroe, defensive end Chris Canty and cornerback Lardarius Webb each have missed significant time with injuries.It was more of the same Sunday, when wide receiver Torrey Smith was essentially useless because of a knee injury, Gorrer went down and cornerback Anthony Levine left with a concussion.Little-used Kamar Aiken stepped in for Smith and had a career-high six catches for 65 yards and a touchdown.We have a brotherhood among receivers, Aiken said. If we have one of our guys not going or not feeling too well, were going to pick up the slack and were not going to skip a beat.The Ravens have also displayed the ability to bounce back from defeat.ddddddddddddAfter losing twice to the Bengals and suffering a 43-23 embarrassment in Pittsburgh, its a wonder the Ravens arent already building for 2015.Weve got a resilient bunch, Harbaugh said. Theyre mentally tough, they dont get caught up in the noise, they dont get easily distracted. We say turn neither to the left or the right, eyes straight ahead.Harbaugh said its veterans such as Joe Flacco, Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil that keep the team on the right course.Weve got some young guys that are headed in the right direction because of the mature guys around them that are leading and showing them the way, the coach said.Harbaugh knew what kind of team he had on Sept. 11, when the Ravens beat Pittsburgh at home just two days after a video surfaced showing Rice punching his then-fiance in an elevator. The media swarmed the team facility — asking more questions about Rice than the Steelers — yet Baltimore deftly rebounded from a season-opening loss to Cincinnati.Coming up strong in Miami after blowing a 10-point lead against the Chargers was equally important.It just took a lot out of us, receiver Steve Smith said of the San Diego loss. But you cant sit there and throw a party if you won, and you cant throw a pity party if you lose. You just got to get back on the horse and just hold on.The ride in the regular season will last three more weeks, beginning at home Sunday against Jacksonville (2-11). The Ravens will reach the post-season if they win out, no small feat given what theyve gone through thus far.We could sit here and say we wish wed be another game or two better, and we could say were happy were not a game or two worse, Harbaugh said. Were pleased with the fact that were in the hunt and control our own destiny. Its just our job to make the most of it.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Chargers Hoodies Cheap Browns Hoodies Cheap Texans Hoodies Cheap Ravens Hoodies Cheap Panthers Hoodies Cheap Jets Hoodies Cheap Titans Hoodies Cheap Chiefs Hoodies Cheap Bills Hoodies Cheap Colts Hoodies Cheap Cardinals Hoodies Cheap Buccaneers Hoodies Cheap Rams Hoodies Cheap Jaguars Hoodies Cheap Falcons Hoodies Cheap Bengals Hoodies ' ' '
