BOSTON — Sunday night’s game between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens will have a familiar feel. It’s the second year in a row the Pats and the Ravens play for the AFC Championship, with the winner going to the Super Bowl.

The Pats took it in a squeaker last year, but the Ravens won their regular season game with the Patriots in September.

“They’re as good as any team we played this year, better than most,” Pats coach Bill Belichick said. “We’re playing a team that we had a great, great game with earlier in the season. It came down to the last play.”

Will it be that close on Sunday? EPSN Boston’s Mike Reiss joined WBUR’s Morning Edition to preview the game.
