The Ravens may have been tired from a Monday night game in Detroit. Their quarterback may have been a bit banged up. But the Patriots defense held Baltimore to just one score in their 41-7 win last weekend.

As the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe explained on UNO Sports Tonight, that just doesn't happen in today's NFL all that often.

Between strong showings from Dont'a Hightower and a healthier-looking Aqib Talib, the Pats 'D' showed some signs of progress. They may not be world-beaters. But they appear to be improving after poor showings for most of the month of December.
