Three things that need to go right for Ravens vs. Patriots

Three things that need to go right …

1. Ray Rice runs wild. The Ravens running back totaled 262 yards on the ground in two meetings last season. He broke runs of 83 and 50 yards against the Patriots.

2. Terrell Suggs forces turnovers. When the officials weren't flagging him for unnecessary roughness on him, the Ravens linebacker stripped quarterback Tom Brady in each game last season.

3. Dangerous returner Brandon Tate is neutralized. The Ravens' Billy Cundiff, who is tied for the NFL lead with 11 touchbacks, needs to limit the chances of Tate, who has returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in four games.
