FOXBORO The Patriots have a chance to go to their sixth Super Bowl in 12 seasons under Bill Belichick. The Ravens havent been to a Super Bowl in 12 seasons. The Patriots have a Hall of Fame quarterback and head coach. The Ravens have a quarterback who took a delay-of-game penalty on his own 6-yard line in overtime of their divisional playoff win over the Broncos. Of course, he followed with a 24-yard completion on third-and-13, but thats kind of the point. Million-dollar arm, 10-cent head. The emotion of Ray Lewis looming retirement is supposed to be the wind in the Ravens sails. How much that matters and how long that lasts when the game starts is debatable.

DENVER - The Denver Broncos ruined Brock Osweiler's homecoming Monday night, incessantly hurrying, hitting and harassing their former teammate in a 27-9 win over his Houston Texans.
Coach Gary Kubiak returned to the sideline following his second health scare in three years, and he liked what he saw as the Broncos (5-2) snapped a two-game skid in sending the overwhelmed Texans home at 4-3.
