FOXBOROUGH -- Vince Wilfork is one of only four Patriots who were on the field the last time the Patriots played the Ravens in Baltimore. New England won, 27-24, in a game that wasn't decided until the final minute. Wilfork is expecting a similarly difficult contest on Sunday night.

"We’re going to have to play almost a perfect game to walk away on the road Sunday night with a victory," Wilfork said. "This is a good Baltimore football team, we’ve seen over the years, but I think this team now is stacked, probably one of the best teams that Baltimore’s had."

The Ravens might be known for their defense, but with quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Ray Rice, they have some dangerous weapons on offense, too.

"Defensively we have to be ready, they’re going to give us everything they have," Wilfork said. "They’re be very excited to finally get us in their place, on Sunday Night Football. It’s going to be a good football game."
