(Foxboro, MA) -- Familiar foes meet in the AFC Championship Game for the second straight year as the Baltimore Ravens battle the New England Patriots Sunday at Gillette Stadium. The Ravens lost a heartbreaking, 23-20 decision in last year's matchup, with kicker Billy Cundiff missing a potential game-tying, 32-yard field goal with 11 seconds left. After beating the Colts at home in the Wild Card round, Baltimore went into Denver last weekend and knocked off the top-seeded Broncos 38-35 in overtime to advance. It extended the storied career of linebacker Ray Lewis, who is retiring at the end of the season. It also moved the Ravens to within one win of their second-ever Super Bowl appearance. New England beat Baltimore last year despite no touchdown passes and two interceptions by quarterback Tom Brady. The Patriots reached this year's AFC title game by humbling the Houston Texans 41-28 in last weekend's division round. New England is seeking its sixth Super Bowl berth in the Brady-Bill Belichick era. The Patriots lost last year's Super Bowl 21-17 to the New York Giants in Indianapolis.
