Baltimore (12-6) at New England (13-4)
3:30 p.m., Gillette Stadium, Ch. 7
Playoff history: The primary reason Justin Tucker is the Ravens' kicker is because Billy Cundiff badly shanked a 32-yard field goal against New England in last year's AFC Championship, which the Patriots won. Baltimore appeared to have scored the go-ahead touchdown with 22 seconds left but Pats DB Sterling Moore knocked the ball out of Lee Evans' hands. Both players have since been cut by their respective teams
Story lines: If you haven't heard, this is the final season for Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis, who has played in all 19 franchise playoff games. ... New England QB Tom Brady threw eight interceptions in 637 attempts during the regular season. Five of those picks occurred in the five games star tight end Rob Gronkowski (out with a broken arm) did not play. Brady's passer rating with Gronk was 102.7. Without him, it was 90.4.
The line: Patriots by 8.
