Are Ravens Tom Brady's Achilles heel?

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Those Ravens logos certainly have been like kryptonite to Tom Brady, whom many consider the Superman of the modern-day quarterbacking fraternity.

While he hasn’t actually shrivelled and melted whenever he has played the Ravens, he certainly hasn’t been, well, Brady-like in his past four meetings against Baltimore.

While Brady holds a 5-2 career mark versus Baltimore, he is only 2-2 in recent years, including a 1-1 split in post-season encounters.

In those four games, Brady has thrown seven picks and just four touchdown passes versus the Ravens, numbers that equate to a quarterback rating of just 69.3. In other words, the Ravens are not intimidated by the future Hall of Famer and know they have a legitimate shot to get him off his game when Baltimore and New England meet in the AFC championship game on Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.

“It’s never easy,” Brady said about facing the Ravens.
