Sunday will bring good news for either the New England Patriots or Houston Texans, who will square off in the second of two AFC divisional-round matchups, as one team will advance a step closer to Super Bowl XLVII.
That's the good news.
The bad news? Whichever team comes out on top is going to have to work up a strategy to stop the vertical passing game of the Ravens, which exposed the Broncos secondary Saturday night.
The Pats and Texans shouldn't celebrate the Broncos bowing out of the playoffs, not with the Ravens offense flying high thanks to Joe Flacco and a potent vertical passing attack.
