Good afternoon and welcome to our live coverage of the NFL playoff games - starting off shortly with the Baltimore Ravens at the New England Patriots...
It's kicked off. Ravens have the ball on their 20
Flacco's pass is off the mark
Pats waste their three downs too. Low key start
Romanian-Hungarian Zoltan Mesko punting there for the Patriots. Arrived in the U.S as a kid. via the greencard lottery.
Some injury problem with Flacco? His back-up was in the huddle initially there before Flacco took his spot.
Nice catch by Edelman there
INTERCEPTION BY POLLARD for RAVENS
Illegal contact ruling so that Interception is over-ruled.
Still scoreless here with 7:42 left in the first
Big miss there from Brady - couldn't find Gronkowski on what would have been a TD pass.
Most people assuming Pats would walk this, but people said that about the Packers last week
If you wondering where Ochocinco is - the New England wide receiver traveled to Florida Saturday for his father’s funeral and is on the inactives list
3-0 Patriots with a 29 yard Field Goal.
13 play drive from the Pats there.

Big throw from Flacco gives Ravens big yards
42 yard gain there with a great pass from Flacco, moving out of the pocket and finding his receiver.
Ravens set for first big score here
End of first quarter - Patriots 3-0 up but Ravens are inside the ten.
short of first down, it's 4th and ! inside the 10. Field goal team out. A fake?
Field goal for the Ravens ties it up at 3-3.
Many would have tried for touchdown there on 4th down. Conservative from Ravens but only first half. I would probably have gone for broke...
Neither team have really been able to impose themselves yet on this game offensively.
Brady top throw down the middle. 1st and 10 on 21. Offensive tight ends really are in vogue this year. Could be key.
Helmet off! Personal foul. 1st and goal for Pats
