After a heartbreaking loss to the Patriots in the AFC Championship game last season, the Ravens will host Tom Brady and company in a rematch on Sunday Night Football.

The Ravens have the longest home winning streak in the NFL, boasting 11 straight wins at M&T Bank Stadium. Can they protect Joe Flacco while also slowing down the Patriots' high-powered offense?

Meanwhile, can New England keep things rolling without Aaron Hernandez?

Either way, one of these two AFC powerhouses is going to start the 2012 season 1-2.
