Patriots maintain home field drive with Ravens win (AFP)

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots withstood a furious late fightback from the Baltimore Ravens to clinch the AFC East for an eighth straight year with a 30-23 win on Monday. The Ravens had moved to within three points of a remarkable comeback, after cutting a 20-point deficit in the second half to 23-20. The touchdown put the icing on another vintage display from Brady, who made 25 of 38 throws while amassing 406 yards and three touchdowns.
