That's what the Patriots are on. They pulled this game out of their ass tonight. GREAT comeback drive, but was made to look beatable by a middle of the road Ravens team.

Bravo for Kyle Boller though, as much shit as he's taken, he played his heart out tonite.

Interesting booking giving the Ravens a couple of visual pins on 4th-and-1, before getting the win with a crooked ref. The Patriots showed enough ass to get the marks to think that the Steelers can avoid doing the job, but I'm smelling squash.

There were a few very wonky calls there in the last two minutes or so. That, along with some luck at a perfectly timed time out gave the Pats the win.

I'm really hoping they pull off a perfect season because I'd love it for there to be a undefeated team AND a winless team, both in the same season... the Dolphins are just pathetic this year, and I LOVE it!

Nice tackle jobs by the Ravens WRs on the Hail Mary - Randall Gay got tossed into the end zone and Asante Samuel got mugged while the scrum for the ball started. Justice for the Pats DBs that Clayton got tackled on the 3.

I will say, last week I wasn't worried against the Eagles, this week I was VERY worried. Great comeback.

Between scraping by against the shorthanded Eagles and nearly crashing and burning against the woeful Ravens, is anyone else thinking this could somehow lead to the Pats falling to the...gulp...winless Dolphins in Week 16 in what would be the new Upset of the Century? If there's anything that would kill any good buzz created by this season, it would be that double whammy right there.

More likely, though, I'll still bet on the Pats losing in Week 17 when they sit their starters against the Giants, who will probably be fighting for their playoff lives.

This upcoming weekend's game against the Steelers could be another one for the ages, as the Steelers are #1 in virtually every defensive statistical category, versus the Patriots #1 offense.

Since about week 4 I haven't been able to figure out why nobody's tried playing the Pats the same way people used to play the Colts. On offense, run the ball a shed load to keep Brady and co off the field longer. On D, press their receivers, get pressure on Brady, and don't worry too much about stopping the run, cos the Pats sure as heck don't worry too much about starting it.

The Eagles did the second bit last week, and the Ravens did both this week and were unlucky not to get the win.

I still think the Pats are a phenomenal team, but in consecutive weeks their D has struggled against offences run by AJ Feely and Kyle Boller respectively.

Actually, having a sucky QB may be all you need. Beck should be all set to pull off the upset in week 16 then going on this week's form.

The Giants actually could clinch a playoff bearth this week, though it would take some doing (a win, plus Detroit, Carolina, New Orleans and Washington losing or tying in various combinations). They're 2 up for a wild card slot, and the Cowboys are have just about wrapped up the division. I'd guess the most likely scenario is that BOTH teams go into week 17 with no playoff ramifications, and it's a battle of the 2nd-strings.

If they get by Pittsburgh, the Jets game is going to have enough bad blood to get everyone through it, and the Giants game is scrub central...I actually DO see the Dolphin game as the great trap in the road, but if they get through Pittsburgh this week, I think they'll pull it off.

Anybody know the specifics on who can call timeouts? I've done some quick Googling, and have seen that either: a) players on the field, or b) the head coach can do it. Maybe somebody can clarify?

Mike Tirico read something from the official NFL rulebook that basically said that it can only be the head coach or a player on the field.

Does 'The Godfather of the U' Ray Lewis get as emotional prior to a game about Richard Lollar and Jacinth Baker as he did for Sean Taylor?

The way the last two games have gone for the Patriots, I'd almost think the endings were scripted.

Or maybe they're just so good they are toying with the score and choosing to win at the last possible moment.

This seems completely unnecessary.

I don't want to say that things seemed a bit shady but I am pretty sure I saw Tim Donaghy conferring with the officials before they thre a couple of those flags.

I think I saw him too. Right before Welker got held running his route where Reed got the INT. ;-)

Pats got lucky, but the Ravens messed up as well.

That really sucks. He always seemed like a good guy, and him and his staff were pretty easy to deal with and professional when we've had to deal with NW on past gamedays. Condolences to his family.
