Coors Light NFL Fan Rant Conference Championship Weekend: Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots
Less than one week after pulling off a big upset on the road against the Denver Broncos in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, the Baltimore Ravens pulled off an even bigger upset in the AFC Championship after marching into Foxboro and upsetting the New England Patriots 28-13 to advance to Super Bowl XLVII against the San Francisco 49ers.
Prior to the game, all Patriots fans wanted to talk about was how the Ray Lewis retirement party would be ending Sunday night in Foxboro, but that clearly wasn’t the case as the potential Hall of Fame linebacker extended his career two more weeks now that he has a chance to play in New Orleans. With the way Tom Brady and company tend to play at home, Ravens fans knew winning at Foxboro wouldn’t be easy–but they had faith all along as their team shutout the Patriots’ offense in the second half.
The best part of this classic AFC Championship matchup was how both teams have two of the best fan bases in football and they certainly didn’t disappoint when it comes to tailgating as their day started early in the morning–with of course Ravens fans celebrating throughout most of the night afterwards as well once Baltimore won. If the two Conference Championship games are any indication of what to expect, fans should be in for another classic matchup in the Super Bowl and it should be interesting to see how many fans that made the trip to Foxboro will take the trip to New Orleans as well.
