Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian recently lost a bet over the AFC Championship game.
Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian followed through on a promise and delivered New England Clam Chowder to the Waltham-based REACH Beyond Domestic Violence on Tuesday, Jan. 29.

The New England Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens Gillette Stadium in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, battling for the right to go to their second straight Super Bowl, and sixth in the Tom Brady/Bill Belichick era.

Vote in our poll and tell us what you expect out of today's game in the comment section below.
Tom Brady and the 14-3 New England Patriots will host Joe Flacco and the 13-4 Baltimore Ravens today for the AFC Championship. Hot off a 45-10 victory over Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos last weekend, the Patriots have only to survive this weekend in order to secure a spot in the 2012 Super Bowl. A victory today would lead to New England's fifth Super Bowl appearance in 11 seasons, and yet another opportunity for Brady to solidify his position among the upper most echelon of NFL quarterbacks, along side four-time Super Bowl champions Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw. Do you think Brady and the Patriots will get that opportunity, or are the Ravens harbingers of a heartbreaking end?
