For the second week in a row the Falcons stormed out of the blocks and with a 17-0 lead just six seconds into the second quarter thanks in large to an unstoppable Julio Jones (11 receptions, 182 yards, 2 TDs). Colin Kaepernick (16-21, 233 yards, 1 TD) responded by leading two touchdown drives of 76 and 85 yards to close the gap to 17-14 before Matt Ryan again demonstrated his proficiency in the two minute drill to make it 24-14 at the half. He would end the half an amazing 18-24 for 273 yards and three touchdowns. After the 49ers closed the gap to 24-21 on the opening drive the second half would prove to be a tale of errors from both sides. Twice Matt Ryan turned the ball over when the Falcons looked like scoring. First he was intercepted before then fumbling a snap on their next possession as his playoff demons returned. San Francisco failed to make them pay scoring zero points from the turnovers courtesy of a missed David Akers field goal and a Michael Crabtree fumble at the one-yard line. Starting the next drive at the 38, Frank Gore (21 carries, 90 yards, 2 TDs) took full advantage as he ran it in from nine yards to put his side in front for the first time in the game. In a last hurrah, Matt Ryan led a long 7.10 minute drive to the San Francisco 15 yard line, but there was to be no last minute heroics this week, as he was unable to convert on a fourth down ending the Falcons season in heartbreaking fashion. Baltimore Ravens 28-13 New England Patriots The Baltimore Ravens stunned the New England Patriots 28-13 and avenged last season’s AFC Championship defeat to set up the HarBowl. The Ravens defence once again had all the answers to Tom Brady, blanking him in the second half as Joe Flacco won the quarterback duel, ending 21-36 for 240 yards and three touchdowns. Red zone efficiency was the key to the game; the Patriots made five trips inside the Ravens 25 yard line yet came away with only a single touchdown to show for it. Conversely, the Ravens only had four drives of over 30 yards in the entire game, but scored a touchdown on every single one of them. The game could have been very different if not for a costly drop by Wes Welker when the Patriots were driving deep down the field with a 13-7 lead early in the third. That forced a punt and from that point on Joe Flacco took over. After some questionable play calling in the first half, Flacco was finally allowed to air the ball out and he responded by leading three consecutive touchdown drives of 87, 63 and 47 yards; the third of which followed a fumble from Steven Ridley which was forced by a booming Bernard Pollard hit. The 15 point gap would prove insurmountable as Brady failed to bring his side back, turning the ball over on downs -- oddly throwing when he surely could have run for it -- and then throwing two interceptions. It sets up a tantalizing Super Bowl clash between brothers Jim and John Harbaugh and means the Ray Lewis (14 tackles) retirement show may yet have the fairy tale ending it deserves.
