The New England Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens Gillette Stadium in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, battling for the right to go to their second straight Super Bowl, and sixth in the Tom Brady/Bill Belichick era.
The NFL Championship Weekend begins Sunday at 3 p.m. on Fox when the Atlanta Falcons host the San Fransisco 49ers to determine the NFC champion. Then, at 6:30 p.m., on CBS, the Patriots kick off against rival Baltimore.
The two winners Sunday move on to the Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans on Sunday, Feb. 3. It would be the second-straight Super Bowl for the Patriots, eighth in team history. It would also be the sixth appearance in the biggest game of the year for the Patriots since Tom Brady took over as quarterback in 2001. The team has won three, but has lost its last two.
