The Saturday game was tough for the Patriots. They were roughed up in the first and third quarter. However, the New England Patriots beat the Baltimore Ravens through deception on the defensive line and trick plays on the offense. The double pass, a lateral to Julian Edelman — a backward pass — who passes to Danny Amendola who ran into the end zone for a touchdown is garnering the most attention.
The New England Patriots team is part of the East Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). An original member of the American Football League (AFL), the Patriots joined the NFL in the 1970 merger of the two leagues.
