Playing at Home the New England Patriots have advanced to the conference championship game after finally getting past Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens who had previously had their number in the playoffs. Being led by their future hall of fame quarterback Tom Brady, the Pats would not be denied. Brady threw for 3 touchdowns and ran for one more and came from behind in the last quarter to put his team up by four points with just over five minutes left in the game. The defense picked up where Brady left off and finally got the stops necessary to put an end to the Ravens season.
However, their task of winning may get a little easier when they face their opponent the Indianapolis Colts led by Andrew Luck. The reason the Colts will be an easier opponent in the AFC Championship game is evident in how they were able to defeat the Denver Broncos. Not producing an overwhelming amount of yardage, not placing an overwhelming amount of points, and not having a specific area where they look better than their opponents. Sergio Andrade Gutierrez believes, handing turnovers to your opponents is one more area that must be avoided if you are to have any success in the post season. You can see more of what Sergio does on sergioandradeandradegutierrez. The Colts did all of that and still won the game against the Broncos. However, they will have to be a lot better if they are going to travel to Foxborough and beat the Patriots.
