In back to back games, the Patriots offensive line has not given up a sack and the challenge won't be any easier this week against the Ravens. Baltimore has seven sacks in its 3-0 stretch, tied for eighth in the league.

Tom Brady has been sacked once this season.

"They're doing great," Brady said of the offensive line. "They've been together for a long time, so they know the calls, they know the schemes. Offensive lines typically get a lot better as they play together and these guys have been together and relatively very healthy which we've been lucky with. They're very well coached and they all play well together. We've played some challenging defenses. ... Our guys are always up for the challenge and they're always prepared.

"It's pretty awesome to have one sack over the first three weeks of the year."
