For the second time in five seasons, the Patriots and Giants will meet in the Super Bowl, and instead of just getting one scout to weigh in on the matchup, we enlisted two -- one from the AFC and another from the NFC -- to help break thi

FOXBORO -- In the waning moments of Sunday’s AFC championship, the Ravens were a muddled mess.

Here are the 10 matchups to look for in Sunday’s AFC championship game between the Patriots and the Ravens at Gillette Stadium:
Christopher Price
01/20/2012 - 1:40am
FOXBORO -- No position on the Patriots roster has come under more fire this season than the secondary.
Christopher Price
01/18/2012 - 1:09am
It remains one of the most distinguishing aspects of the Patriots offense in 2011: the no-huddle.
Christopher Price
01/17/2012 - 1:16am
FOXBORO -- While many have already reduced this week’s AFC Championship Game between the Patriots and the Ravens to a rematch of their 2009 playoff showdown, the truth is that these two teams are far different than the ones that met that afternoon three years ago at Gillette Stadium.
Christopher Price
01/16/2012 - 9:45pm
FOXBORO -- Wide receiver Wes Welker is drawing a lot of attention for his mustache campaign this postseason, but when it comes to facial hair, linebacker Rob Ninkovich clearly has him beat.
Christopher Price
01/15/2012 - 6:11am
FOXBORO -- In a year when pro football pundits tried to search for religious symbolism in every move made (or even stat compiled) by Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, it was Patriots quarterback

Here are the ten matchups we’ll be keeping an eye on in Saturday’s divisional playoff contest between the Patriots and Broncos:
Christopher Price
01/12/2012 - 7:31pm
FOXBORO -- If you are putting together a list of Bill Belichick’s football-related regrets, trading Deion Branch in 2006 is probably near the top of the list.
Christopher Price
01/11/2012 - 10:00pm
FOXBORO -- The Patriots’ defense that will face Tim Tebow and the Broncos on Saturday night is a different group that the one that met Denver last month.
Christopher Price
01/10/2012 - 5:26pm
FOXBORO -- If Tuesday’s practice was any indication, the Patriots’ offensive line figures to get a sizable boost this week when it faces the Broncos in the divisional round of the postseason Saturday night at
Christopher Price
01/09/2012 - 5:52pm
For the Patriots, it’ll be all about taking advantage of positive man-to-man matchups, while the Broncos must focus on playing good complementary football and staying as physical as possible on defense.
Christopher Price
01/05/2012 - 11:53pm
FOXBORO -- There’s no way to explain how football changes when the schedule turns from the regular season to the postseason. You can try and explain it to a youngster who hasn’t gone through the process, but chances are they won’t be fully prepared until they step on the field.
Christopher Price
01/05/2012 - 1:42am
FOXBORO -- To be considered a truly great team in the NFL, you not only have to be physically tough, but mentally resilient as well.
Christopher Price
01/04/2012 - 1:39am
Looking at how the Patriots have distributed the ball in the passing game the last three seasons, it’s clear that New England has gone from an offense where the tight ends were ancillary parts of a much bigger whole to a system that has been dominated by young tight ends Rob Gronkowski and

FOXBORO -- Just after 4 o’clock on Sunday afternoon, everything changed for the Patriots.
Christopher Price
12/30/2011 - 12:58am
With the postseason looming, the Patriots have to feel good about two stats that have continued to show improvement over the second half of the regular season -- the dip in the amount of penalties they’ve taken, as well as the decrease in the number of turnovers they’ve committed.

The Slater Family is heading back to the Pro Bowl.
Christopher Price
12/28/2011 - 4:54pm
FOXBORO -- While tackle Nate Solder has likely clinched the honor of Patriots’ Rookie of the Year, running back Stevan Ridley has started to come on strong down the stretch and appears to be poised to make a serious contribution to the New England offense in the postseason.
Christopher Price
12/26/2011 - 2:21am
The Patriots made a series of high-profile offseason acquisitions: Ochocinco! Haynesworth!
Christopher Price
12/25/2011 - 2:40am
FOXBORO -- It was like watching a veteran boxer, one who stands flat-footed for a few rounds taking some punches, all the while using the experience to take the measure of his opponent. Then, when the moment is right, they take command.
