Rob Ninkovich on facing the Ravens with the Super Bowl on the line

01/18/2013

Rob Ninkovich, Mark SanchezWhile Tom Brady and the Patriots offense will grab the headlines after wins like last week’s 41-28 victory over the Houston Texans, it’s the improved New England defense that will have a big say in whether the team reaches back-to-back Super Bowls.

While Brady and company try to score on the Baltimore defense, it’ll be up to the Patriots on the other side of the ball to slow down a Ravens’ offensive unit that put up 31 points on Denver’s highly ranked defense last week in a 38-35 victory.

Ahead of the game, our Mark Malone – who will man the sidelines for us at the AFC Championship Game on Sunday – had a chance to talk with Patriots defensive end Rob Ninkovich.
