The Patriots fell behind the Ravens by 14 points two different times Saturday at Gillette Stadium, but the hosts found a way to edge their relative kryptonite, 35-31, in the AFC divisional round.

The Ravens were up 28-14 midway through the third quarter but a five-yard touchdown reception by Rob Gronkowski and a 51-yard touchdown reception by Danny Amendola from Julian Edelmantied the game at 28 heading to the fourth quarter.

Brady threw the ball to Edelman behind the line of scrimmage on the score, and Edelman – a former quarterback at Kent State – found a streaking Amendola.

Duron Harmon’s interception of Joe Flacco ended Baltimore’s final legit chance at pulling off an upset in Foxboro.

The Patriots await the winner of Sunday’s Colts at Broncos game (4:30 p.m., CBS).
