The New England Patriots set up the possibility of a Super Bowl rematch with the New York Giants on Sunday, defeating the Baltimore Ravens, 23-20, in the AFC Championship Game. The Ravens had a chance to tie with 15 seconds to play, but kicker Billy Cundiff missed a potential game-tying field goal wide left, sending the Patriots to the 2012 Super Bowl.

The Patriots await the winner of Sunday evening's NFC Championship Game between the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers. A victory by the Giants would bring about a rematch of the Super Bowl from four years ago, a 17-14 victory by the Giants that spoiled what had been a perfect season for the Patriots.

New England got the game-winning touchdown on a fourth-and-one quarterback sneak by Tom Brady with 11:33 to play. That capped an 11-play, 63-yard drive.

Baltimore's final possession began on its own 21-yard line with 1:44 to play. Joe Flacco moved the Ravens to New England's 15-yard line before Cundiff missed.
