Three things that can go wrong …

1. Brady continues dominance of the AFC North. He is 13-1 in the regular season against the AFC North — his best record against any division — with 26 touchdowns and seven interceptions. His quarterback rating against the division is 98.4.

2. New England picks off Joe Flacco. The Patriots are tied for fifth in the NFL with seven interceptions. All six of Flacco's interceptions have come on the road.

3. Patriots control game by extending drives. The Ravens have the best third-down defense in the NFL (26.6 percent), but the Patriots offense also ranks atop the league in converting on third downs (55.3 percent). Wes Welker leads New England with eight catches on third downs.
