Ravens-Broncos from Pats' view

If you're a Patriots follower and planning to watch today's AFC divisional-round playoff game between the visiting Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos (4:30 p.m. ET), this is an invitation to share thoughts in the comments section of this blog entry.

We know what's at stake.

If the Broncos win, it ensures next Sunday's AFC Championship will be played in Denver (6:30 p.m. ET).

If the Ravens win, and then the Patriots take care of business against the Texans on Sunday, then the AFC Championship would be at Gillette Stadium next Sunday (6:30 p.m. ET).

It's cold in Denver today, and some are wondering how that might affect Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. Also, will this be linebacker Ray Lewis' last game?

Plenty of areas of intrigue. Let's talk about it.
