Patriots use 'On To Baltimore' to market playoff game vs. Ravens
The No. 1 seeded Patriots don't need any help promoting themselves, but they decided to have some fun at the expense of head coach Bill Belichick ahead of Saturday's playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens.
After the Patriots were blown out on Monday Night Football by the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this season, the grumpy Belichick really wouldn't answer any of the reporters' questions, just repeatedly answering with, "We're on to Cincinnati," in reference to their next game against the Bengals.
The Patriots went on to win seven straight games and 10 of their final 12 to end the season.
In an effort to possibly rekindle some of that magic, the Pats are advertising this week's second round playoff game with "On to Baltimore" on their website.
It worked after they were embarrassed on national television, so why can't it carry Belichick and the Pats to a fourth Super Bowl victory?
