-Playing against Belichick, Patriots “ultimate chess game.”

1:07-Greetings from 1 Winning Drive, where the Baltimore Ravens continue their preparations for Sunday’s AFC Wild Card round showdown with the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
At practice today, CB Marcus Paschal appeared to be the only player not participating-although he was dressed and on the side; he may have ended up doing some work. It is worth noting that a few Boston media members are in town, and they are NOT being allowed to watch Ravens practice.
We are scheduled to hear from the coordinators today (Cam Cameron, Greg Mattison and Jerry Rosburg) around 1:30.
In the meantime, check out this speech from John Harbaugh following Sunday’s win over the Oakland Raiders. He refers to a shovel “Just keep digging” and a sword. The Ravens are now practicing wearing patches that depict both a shovel and a sword.
Back shortly with more.
