We don't know what is it about Bernard Pollard when he plays against the Patriots, but it almost never bodes well for New England. He ended Tom Brady's season in 2008 with a low hit that tore his ACL, destroyed Wes Welker's ACL the next year with a tackle, and injured Rob Gronkowski with a high ankle sprain in the last AFC Championship. His latest victim is Stevan Ridley. Pollard pretty much popped the running back, which forced a fumble and sent Ridley spiraling down like a ragdoll.

This was huge, because Anquan Boldin's following 11-yard touchdown catch put the game on ice. The Patriot Killer isn't nothing to mess with.
