Tom Brady met a room packed with reporters as the Patriots and Ravens prepared for the AFC title game on Wednesday at Gillette Stadium.
In Maryland, a camera focused on Ray Lewis as he reiterated that he intends to retire whenever the Ravens' season ends.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick was typically tight-lipped when asked about his team, but was effusive in praise for the Ravens.
Ravens RB Ray Rice said a top priority for him Sunday will be avoiding Vince Wilfork, whom he called "a flat-out beast."
Back in Foxborough, Wilfork lavished praise upon Lewis, who he said is the fuel for the Ravens defense.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he was not worried about the "Sports Illustrated" cover jinx now that his QB, Joe Flacco, graces its front.
