BOSTON - Here they will come, making their return to the scene of the crime this weekend, lugging heavy hearts, churning guts and memories of The One That Got Away.
From the moment the Baltimore Ravens step into Gillette Stadium on Sunday, the reminders of the horror show suffered here one year ago will be everywhere.
Looking down at the southeast end zone, they will see the exact spot that Lee Evans dropped a catchable touchdown toss that would have given the Ravens a last-minute lead and, most likely, a berth in the Super Bowl.
