NFL Championships

At the end of the Ravens/Texans game Ed reed rolled his left ankle. The Ravens are obviously downplaying this but Hedgie thinks it'll play a role in this game. Brady and the pats run an uptempo game to exploit their matchups and not let defenses change personnel groups. With the Pats 31st ranked defense this game should have plenty of scoring. The Pats have gone OVER in their last 7 games. All those totals ranged from 47-50.
Ravens/Pats OVER 50 3 stars

The last time these two teams met the Giants stacked the line and were determined not to let Frank Gore run on them. After 6 carries for zero yards Gore got hit on the knee and did not return. The Niners still won that game 27-20. Having said that the Gmen are now a different team riding a hot streak with alot of confidence. But Hedgie thinks with all the rain this week and more forecast for sunday that the niners have the edge. With home field , a little extra rest and an edge in special teams the Niners should prevail with much help from Frank Gore's legs this time.

NINERS -2 2 stars
