After Ravens win, Patriots now hope to host AFC championship

The Baltimore Ravens stunned the Denver Broncos on their home field in a 38-35 win Saturday afternoon, advancing to the AFC championship game for the second straight year.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw a 70-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones with 31 seconds left in regulation and Justin Tucker nailed a 47-yard field goal in the game’s second overtime to clinch the win.

The Ravens, who are the AFC’s No. 4 seed, will now either travel to Gillette Stadium or Houston’s Reliant Stadium, where they’ll face the No. 2 Patriots or No. 3 Texans. The Patriots and Texans square off on Sunday.

The Patriots beat the Ravens in the AFC championship last year, 23-20, in Foxborough.
