Stadium matchup: Pats have edge over Ravens
FOXBORO, Mass. (WHDH) -- While the game on Sunday is sure to be a tough battle, Pats fans are more than confident when it comes to one matchup off of it: the stadium showdown.
Painting the AFC Championship logo on the field at Gillette Stadium: Patriots fans have seen it before -- but it is something that never gets old.
It's what thousands of fans will see when they arrive at Gillette on Sunday for the big game.
Tom Brady's dash on to the field will excite Pats fans, and Ravens legendary linebacker Ray Lewis will ratchet up the drama with his signature dance.
But how do the teams' stadiums compare?
Jumbotrons: Gillette wins hands down. It’s the fourth largest in the league -- the Ravens stadium is 14th.
Seating Capacity: the Ravens have the edge with 70,000 seats compared to more than 68,000 at Gillette.
And unlike the Ravens' stadium, Gillette Stadium was specially designed so that every seat, no matter where you're sitting, is angled at midfield.
Gillette comes out on top when it comes to AFC Championships. The Patriots are 5-0 at home. The Ravens have never won the conference title in their stadium.
Pats fans are salivating for another hometown championship win.
