Patriots failed to make big plays on defense

FOXBOROUGH — There will be plenty of pieces of the blame pie to go around after the Patriots’ sudden, stunning, and dominating 28-13 loss to the Ravens in Sunday night’s AFC Championship game at Gillette Stadium.

Most of it will deservedly go to the offense, which despite having 120 yards of better field position than the Ravens on five drives in the first half, produced just 6 more points and were shut out in the second half.
