FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The last time Tom Brady faced the Baltimore Ravens in the playoffs, he threw interceptions on the New England Patriots final two drives.In their three playoff matchups, he lost twice.All those games were at Gillette Stadium, where the post-season rivals meet Saturday for the fourth time in six years.Brady says none of that history will matter when he takes his first snap in the divisional playoff on the path to what he hopes will be his fourth straight AFC title game.I dont think thats really useful, the quarterback said Tuesday. We cant change what has happened. You just have to move forward and you have to think about the things that weve done really well this year.That would be:Going 12-4 and earning the top seed in the AFC. Scoring the fourth most points in the NFL. Having a strong defence with outstanding cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner. Leadership from a quarterback with the fifth best passer rating. And production from a tight end, Rob Gronkowski, with the most receptions for anyone at his position and excellent blocking ability.Weve put ourselves in a good position, Brady said after returning to practice following a first-round bye. Weve just got to take advantage of it.They didnt do that in two of their three playoff games against the Ravens.Their post-season rivalry began with Baltimores 33-14 wild-card win in the 2009 season. Two years later, New England won 23-20 to advance to the Super Bowl, where it lost to the New York Giants.In Bradys second consecutive AFC championship matchup with the Ravens on Jan. 20, 2013, the Patriots lost 28-13 after leading 13-7 at halftime.Those three games were hardly Bradys best: a total of three touchdown passes, seven interceptions and a 56.1 completion percentage.The Patriots did rout the Ravens in Baltimore last season 41-7, but Brady didnt have to do much. They led 17-0 early in the second quarter, LeGarrette Blount ran for two touchdowns and the defence produced four turnovers and four sacks.Those three playoff games might make for some pretty ugly viewing, but watching film of them might provide useful tips.Its the same (defensive) co-ordinator so a lot of the scheme stuff you see how he (Dean Pees) tried to defend us back then, Brady said. Were a different team now, too, so I think the more information the better.Theyre a different team.Fiery linebacker Terrell Suggs is still around for the Ravens (11-6) and had an interception in last Saturdays 30-17 wild-card win over Pittsburgh.And hes no fan of Bradys, having criticized him for complaining to officials.But four days before their most important game of the season, both downplayed any differences.Hes phenomenal, Brady said. Weve never really talked a lot on the field. Weve never really talked much off the field either. So, its the way it goes, but hes a great player.Suggs had a simple explanation for how he views Brady.Hes a quarterback. Im a defender. Hes got a job to do and so do I, so naturally there are going to be some disagreements there, he said Tuesday. Nobodys really worried about what happened in the past. The only thing were worrying about is this game.The Ravens were second in the NFL with 49 sacks, led by Elvis Dumervil with 17 and Suggs with 12.But theyre 24th in pass defence and tied for 25th with 11 interceptionsThe Patriots offensive line should be back intact after left guard Dan Connolly missed the last two games with a knee injury.Its a lot of pressure on us to do a good job, Connolly said. Its our job to make sure Tom stays upright.In beating the Steelers, the Ravens sacked Pittsburghs Ben Roethslisberger five timesThe Patriots got back to work on Tuesday, working out in pads on a chilly day after five days without practice.Its been great for everybody to get your body a chance to take a little break and heal up a little bit, Brady said. This is a first step for us. A lot of teams played last week. We didnt get a chance to do that.His next chance to beat the Ravens is just a few days away.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Matt Prater Jersey .

Kozun is among the unlikeliest of final contenders to crack the NHL squad in Toronto, just another hurdle for a kid from Los Angeles to overcome. a€?As a smaller guy you obviously have an uphill climb,a€? said the 24-year-old, who moved to Calgary at age 10. a€?Ita€?s not a surprise. This is a game of men and as a smaller guy, youa€?re always going to listen to the critics say that youa€?re big enough or youa€?re not strong enough. But for me ita€?s always been a€?Ia€?m going to prove you wronga€? and try and get to that next level. Kozun has never played an NHL game, but is sure he will one day a€“ if not very soon. Therea€?s an air of confidence (but not cockiness) about him, one seemingly born from a career of being doubted, dismissed and overlooked because of his smallish stature. a€?Because of your size you get cut from certain situations and for me ita€?s always been that determination to get to that next level,a€? he said. a€?No matter what anyone says Ia€?m going to get there.a€? Of the 210 North American skaters ranked by NHL Central Scouting in 2008, an 18-year-old Kozun was nowhere to be found. He went undrafted that summer, but came back the following year and absolutely tore up the Dub, potting 40 goals and 108 points a€“ good for second in the league a€“ for the WHLa€?s top team, the Calgary Hitmen. He found his name on those rankings (150th) following that performance and was plucked up by L.A. with the 179th-overall selection at the draft in Montreal that June. Buried amongst the Kings talented prospect pool, Kozun spent three-plus seasons in the AHL with Manchester a€“ scoring more than 20 goals three times a€“ before landing in Toronto last January in a midseason trade that sent Andrew Crescenzi to L.A. Now he finds himself bidding for an NHL opportunity with the Leafs, his unlikely combination of wheels and pluckiness earning him a good, long and rewarding look. Few could have expected him to last this long and therea€?s a case to be made that hea€?s earned a spot. a€?Ia€?ve tried to just come into it with a a€?whatever happens, happensa€? mentality,a€? he said. a€?I feel like I dona€?t have anything to lose.a€? Ita€?s the skating with Kozun that first grabs the eye, a must for a player of his stature, according to head coach, Randy Carlyle. a€?Well I think thata€?s his biggest asset,a€? Carlyle said recently. a€?If you come and watch him he jumps out at you because of his speed.a€? The player agrees. a€?As a smaller guy I think you kind of need that in the game today,a€? Kozun said.dddddddddddd a€?I think it helps me navigate around the ice. Ita€?s just part of my game. Ita€?s something I try to use as a weapon. When Ia€?m skating thata€?s when Ia€?m most effective.a€? And though he may be small, Kozun tries to play big. Hea€?s not appeared afraid or unwilling to throw around that diminutive frame, especially up the ice on the penalty kill, where hea€?s been used from time to time in the preseason. The Marlies were actually surprised to learn last season that he hadna€?t been used much as a penalty killer prior to joining their team - his ability to disrupt opposing power-plays with speed and forcefulness an obvious benefit. That was noticeable at the Joe in Detroit on Monday; Kozun broke free of the defence for a short-handed breakaway that was turned aside by Red Wings goalie, Petr Mrazek. Kozun later landed in the box for a heavy, hard-charging hit on Stephen Weiss and then replaced Matt Frattin alongside Tyler Bozak and James van Riemsdyk, bursting past the Wings for two more good chances in the final frame. His fight is ultimately for the one of the final forward spots, likely the fourth line right-wing position occupied mostly by Colton Orr last season. With his wheels, rambunctiousness, penalty-killing ability and potential for bits of offence, he offers more tools than that of his current competition. Hea€?s outplayed that competition at camp, no less a€“ Orr, Troy Bodie, Frazer McLaren, Carter Ashton, Tyler Biggs, David Broll and even Frattin, who has had a mediocre preseason in the eyes of head coach. In question for Carlyle, his coaching staff and management is whether Kozuns assets will translate when the game rises to NHL speeds. a€?The challenge will be and is for the small guy, the smaller player in stature to make an impact,a€? said Carlyle, a€?the same impact he was making at the American Hockey League, can that continue on into the NHL against bigger, stronger, faster-skating defencemen?a€? Others of similar stature have shown recently that it can be done. Nathan Gerbe, listed at 5-foot-6 and 180, scored 16 goals last year in Carolina, killing penalties and injecting bite along the way. Stephen Gionta, 5-foot-7 and of the same build as Gerbe, remains a feisty fourth-line force for Peter DeBoer in Jersey. Kozun, for one, doesna€?t hide from the belief he has in himself or his abilities. Hea€?s confident he can get to the next level. a€?I think you have to have confidence in yourself,a€? he said. a€?If I were to tell you a€?no, I dona€?t believe Ia€?m going to get therea€? I dona€?t think I ever will. A lot of people,a€? he continued, a€?have said a lot of things that I wouldna€?t do.a€?
