In the 22 of 36 Bowl, more commonly called the 2012 AFC Championship Game, the New England Patriots survive a 4th Quarter scare by the Baltimore Ravens.
Both Quarterbacks were 22 of 36 passing on the day and Raven QB Joe Flacco had better stats than QB Tom Brady but it is the Pats who advance to the Super Bowl.
4th quarter Raven blunders included the likely game-winning dropped touchdown in the endzone with seconds left in the game.
And who can forget the botched field goal by ultra-reliable kicker William “Billy” Cundiff.
Though the Ravens had fewer turnovers, held the ball longer, outpassed and outran the Patriots they failed in the most important category of all, outscoring the opponent.
When it mattered most, zero fourth quarter points scored send the Baltimore Ravens and Ray Lewis home on a mad plane ride.
