Why the Patriots and Ravens are Tied

Here’s the reasons why the Patriots are tied with the 4-7 Ravens at halftime,

  1. Ben Watson’s dropped TD pass on the first drive could have changed the entire complexion of the game. By keeping the Patriots to a field goal, the Ravens defense and crowd scored a moral victory and no doubt took pressure of the Ravens offense.
  2. The wind has plagued Brady thus far. On a throw to Moss in the endzone and a deep ball to Moss near the end of the half, Brady’s throws were off target largely because of the wind. Kyle Boller has had some problems too but Brady’s two throws most effected by the wind were two huge plays
  3. Kyle Boller is playing a heck of a lot like A.J. Feeley did last week. He has stood in the pocket and taken some big hits while delivering the ball. It’s never been debated that he has incredible arm strength. If he can somehow keep up this level of play and the Patriots continue to drop balls left and right, the Ravens could do the impossible
