    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Rafael Marquez Jersey . - The last time Tom Brady faced the Baltimore Ravens in the playoffs, he threw interceptions on the New England Patriots final two drives.In their three playoff matchups, he lost twice.All those games were at Gillette Stadium, where the post-season rivals meet Saturday for the fourth time in six years.Brady says none of that history will matter when he takes his first snap in the divisional playoff on the path to what he hopes will be his fourth straight AFC title game.I dont think thats really useful, the quarterback said Tuesday. We cant change what has happened. You just have to move forward and you have to think about the things that weve done really well this year.That would be:Going 12-4 and earning the top seed in the AFC. Scoring the fourth most points in the NFL. Having a strong defence with outstanding cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner. Leadership from a quarterback with the fifth best passer rating. And production from a tight end, Rob Gronkowski, with the most receptions for anyone at his position and excellent blocking ability.Weve put ourselves in a good position, Brady said after returning to practice following a first-round bye. Weve just got to take advantage of it.They didnt do that in two of their three playoff games against the Ravens.Their post-season rivalry began with Baltimores 33-14 wild-card win in the 2009 season. Two years later, New England won 23-20 to advance to the Super Bowl, where it lost to the New York Giants.In Bradys second consecutive AFC championship matchup with the Ravens on Jan. 20, 2013, the Patriots lost 28-13 after leading 13-7 at halftime.Those three games were hardly Bradys best: a total of three touchdown passes, seven interceptions and a 56.1 completion percentage.The Patriots did rout the Ravens in Baltimore last season 41-7, but Brady didnt have to do much. They led 17-0 early in the second quarter, LeGarrette Blount ran for two touchdowns and the defence produced four turnovers and four sacks.Those three playoff games might make for some pretty ugly viewing, but watching film of them might provide useful tips.Its the same (defensive) co-ordinator so a lot of the scheme stuff you see how he (Dean Pees) tried to defend us back then, Brady said. Were a different team now, too, so I think the more information the better.Theyre a different team.Fiery linebacker Terrell Suggs is still around for the Ravens (11-6) and had an interception in last Saturdays 30-17 wild-card win over Pittsburgh.And hes no fan of Bradys, having criticized him for complaining to officials.But four days before their most important game of the season, both downplayed any differences.Hes phenomenal, Brady said. Weve never really talked a lot on the field. Weve never really talked much off the field either. So, its the way it goes, but hes a great player.Suggs had a simple explanation for how he views Brady.Hes a quarterback. Im a defender. Hes got a job to do and so do I, so naturally there are going to be some disagreements there, he said Tuesday. Nobodys really worried about what happened in the past. The only thing were worrying about is this game.The Ravens were second in the NFL with 49 sacks, led by Elvis Dumervil with 17 and Suggs with 12.But theyre 24th in pass defence and tied for 25th with 11 interceptionsThe Patriots offensive line should be back intact after left guard Dan Connolly missed the last two games with a knee injury.Its a lot of pressure on us to do a good job, Connolly said. Its our job to make sure Tom stays upright.In beating the Steelers, the Ravens sacked Pittsburghs Ben Roethslisberger five timesThe Patriots got back to work on Tuesday, working out in pads on a chilly day after five days without practice.Its been great for everybody to get your body a chance to take a little break and heal up a little bit, Brady said. This is a first step for us. A lot of teams played last week. We didnt get a chance to do that.His next chance to beat the Ravens is just a few days away.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL  href="http://www.mexiconationalshop.us/Jesus-Manuel-Corona-Mexico-Jersey-Soccer/" target="_blank">Jesus Manuel Corona Jersey . He left in the 4th inning of Saturdays game against the Tigers after experiencing tightness. Reyes and the team still hope that he will be ready for Opening Day in Tampa Bay in one week. Diego Reyes Jersey .

DAYTON, Ohio -- Dont get discouraged, coach Cuonzo Martin told his Volunteers during those long NCAA tournament timeouts. Instead, hang in there and figure a way to pull it out. They went about it a most improbable way. With forward Jarnell Stokes using his 280 pounds to dominate inside and a highly regarded defence finally locking in, Tennessee pulled off the first amazing comeback of the NCAA tournament. Stokes opened overtime with a three-point play that put Tennessee ahead to stay, and the Volunteers defence shut down Iowa in overtime for a 78-65 victory on Wednesday night, finishing off the First Four with an exclamation point. "I told our guys weve been through everything this season, keep your composure down the stretch," said Martin, who got his first NCAA tournament win in his third season at Tennessee. "Find ways to win the ball game." The Vols (22-12) head to Raleigh, N.C., where theyll play sixth-seeded Massachusetts on Friday in the Midwest Regional. They left Dayton with a lot of momentum -- six wins in their last seven games. "We did a tremendous job toward the end of fighting back," said Jordan McRae, who had 20 points. "We did a great job on our defence. For us to hold them like we did was a great job." Tennessee didnt lead until Antonio Bartons 3-pointer put the Vols up 59-57 with 3:05 left regulation. There were five lead changes before McRae missed a jumper missed at the buzzer, leaving it tied at 64. No surprise that Barton made the big shot. The senior transfer is the only Volunteer with any significant NCAA tournament experience, having appeared in three of them with Memphis. Stokes three-point play in overtime was the key moment in his 18-point, 13-rebound performance, putting the Volunteers ahead to stay. It was his 20th double-double this season, the most by a Volunteer since Bernard King had 22 of them in 1976-77. Tennessees highly regarded defence took it from there, holding Iowa (21-13) to one free throw the rest of the way. The Hawkeyes missed all eight of their shots from the field in overtime. "You go tthrough anything so often -- being in those games, being in those situations -- were a much better team the last eight games," Martin said. Blank Mexico Jersey. "Guys stepped up and made plays." It was a tough ending to a long and stressful day for Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. He started the day in Iowa with his teenage son, Patrick, who had surgery to remove a thyroid tumour. His assistant coaches led the Hawkeyes through a meeting and their final practice, and McCaffery was back by game time. Martin and the Volunteers hugged him after the game and wished him well. "Their players hugged me and told me they were thinking of me," McCaffery said. "I was really impressed with their guys and the program Cuonzo has built there." Adam Woodbury had 16 points for Iowa, which got a subpar performance from its leading scorer. Roy Devyn Marble was only 3 of 15 from the field for seven points, matching his season low. "I dont think we ran out of gas," Woodbury said. "We made some key mistakes down the stretch and that hurt us." The ending will sting the Hawkeyes for a long time. They were struggling as they headed into their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2006, losing six of their previous seven games. Defence was the biggest problem, often letting them down in the second half. They opened the game in promising fashion, switching from man-to-man to zone to half-court traps. It worked. They got off to a 16-4 lead and were still ahead 29-26 at halftime. They kept swatting away the Volunteers runs until the last few minutes of regulation. Marbles basket tied it at 64, and he was guarding McCrae when he missed his fade-away shot at the buzzer sending it to overtime. Tennessee got an at-large bid by closing the season with a defensive flourish. The Volunteers won five straight before losing to No. 1 Florida 56-49 in the Southeastern Conference tournament. They gave up 61.1 points per game, second only to Florida in the SEC, and allowed an average of only 47.4 points in the last four games. In overtime, that defence decided it. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Discount Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '
