NFL seems more and more rigged
No one can deny that the Patriots laid down in the AFC Conference Championship. The Ravens DID NOT outplay them by any means. So how can a high-flying Patriot offense lose to an aging, mediocre Ravens defense? With a little help. The Ravens are in fact the team of destiny this year, because it was made to be so. This team lost 5 of its last 6 games and had ZERO momentum going into the playoffs. Ray Lewis decides to retire, and the "Harbowl" seems a whole lot more attractive to the league, with it being Lewis' last game to boot. It seems too good to be true, and it's probably because it is. It's a nice story, and it's sure to get the league more ratings and the attention away from concussions, but it doesn't add to the integrity of the game.
