will re-air the Baltimore Ravens' 31-30 win over the New England  Patriots in Week 3 on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 9 p.m. ET.

When the teams met in January, the Patriots squeezed out a three-point win at home to advance to the Super Bowl. The stakes weren't nearly as high in this one, yet the game was eerily similar.

In the previous meeting, Billy Cundiff missed a 32-yard field-goal attempt in the closing seconds. In the encore, Tucker -- who took the job away from Cundiff in training camp -- drove his kick barely inside the right upright.

The game-winning kick followed a pass-interference call against Devin McCourty on Jacoby Jones.

Torrey Smith, who was playing less than 24 hours after the death of his 19-year-old brother, had six catches for 127 yards and two touchdowns for the Ravens.

Baltimore (2-1) won its 12th in a row at home behind Joe Flacco, who went 28-of-39 passing for 382 yards and three touchdowns.

Tom Brady completed 28 of 41 passes for 335 yards and a score for the Patriots (1-2).
