Both teams are looking to be in the top of AFC contenders. Even though the Patriots and Ravens are both coming off tough losses from Week 2 they'll be looking to rebound to get back on track.
Legendary television sportscaster Al Michaels weighed in on his thoughts of the game stating to the Baltimore Sun:
"You've got two teams that played in the AFC championship game last year who are legitimate Super Bowl contenders, and who, according to their fan base, should be 2-0, but they're 1-1. And now all of a sudden on Monday morning, you're going to have a fan base for one of them that's going to be on the edge of panic, because they'll be 1-2. And even though you're not really out of it, 1-2 doesn't sound very good when you think your team should be 3-0."
He continued saying that the game is "an attractive matchup between two teams that last January were an inch apart at the end of the day."
On the matchup of the two great players in the game he stated: "If this were a movie theater, outside it would say, 'Patriots versus Ravens, starring Tom Brady and Ray Lewis'".
The New England Patriots will face off against the Baltimore Ravens tonight on "Sunday Night Football" broadcast on NBC at 8:20pm Eastern Time.
