The New England Patriots will play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in a big Week 16 NFL clash. This is a massive game for the Ravens, who will need to win to ensure they remain in the Wild Card spots for the playoffs. However, the Patriots are also looking to clinch the no. 2 seed spot in the AFC conference and will be going all out for victory today. The game will start at 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Patriots are currently on 10-4 and are seeded 2 for the playoffs. They will not want to let that position slip in the final weeks of the season; as it stands they would have a round one bye, and that could make all the difference when it comes to winning the Conference title and making the Super Bowl.
The Ravens meanwhile are on 8-6 and are seeded 6th right now for the playoffs in the AFC. However, with the Miami Dolphins also on 8-6 and the San Diego Chargers just behind on 7-7, the Ravens know they have to win out the final two games of the season to stand the best chance of making the postseason.
The Ravens come into this game on the back of an amazing run of form. They have turned their season around with four straight wins to go from 4-6 strugglers to 8-6 and on the verge of making the playoffs.
In recent weeks Baltimore have defeated the New York Jets, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions.
However, they must now consolidate their good work with a win today against the high flying Patriots, and then go on the road next week against the Cincinnati Bengals hoping to finish the season with a streak of six straight wins.
