AFC Championship 2013: Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots

Al Bello

The cards are set and the AFC Championship game is a rematch from last year.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, Jan. 20, 6:30 p.m. ET
Location: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA
TV Schedule: CBS

Though much closer than their original meeting in Week 14, the result was largely the same. New England jumped out to a 17-3 lead before Houston closed the Patriots lead to four points on a touchdown and Shayne Graham 55-yarder to end the first half. Beyond that it was all New England, scoring three touchdowns on their first four second half possessions, thanks to a Matt Schaub interception and turnover on downs early in the fourth. Houston made a run at the end, but the deficit was too large, with the Patriots securing a 41-28 win to conclude the Divisional Round of the 2012 NFL playoffs.

New England will host the Baltimore Ravens, who became unlikely winners after a double-overtime slugfest, preceded by an unbelievable Ravens touchdown with 30 seconds remaining in the game to tie it in regulation.

The final four is set and the AFC Championship game will feature another rematch from Week 3. Unlike the Patriots domination over Houston in Week 14, this time it was the Ravens that won, 31-30.

This is also a rematch from last year's AFC Championship game with the Patriots beating the Ravens 23-20, thanks to a Billy Cundiff missed 32-yard field goal attempt that sailed wide left.
