FOXBOROUGH, Mass., Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Baltimore's Ray Rice ran 83 yards for a touchdown on the first play from scrimmage Sunday and the Ravens went on whip New England 33-14 in the AFC playoffs.

The wild-card victory advances Baltimore to the next round of the playoffs in Indianapolis Saturday against the top-seeded Colts.

The Ravens ran up a 24-0 lead in the first quarter and benefited in the surprisingly one-sided contest from four turnovers by New England quarterback Tom Brady.

Rice, who also scored on a 1-yard touchdown run, rushed for 159 yards.

Other Baltimore touchdowns came on runs of 1 yard by LeRon McClain and 3 yards by Willis McGahee and the Ravens' Billy Cundiff kicked field goals from 27 and 23 yards.

New England, which had not lost a playoff game on its home field in more than 30 years, scored on two short Brady passes to rookie Julian Edelman -- for 6 yards in the second quarter and 1 yard in the third.

Brady was intercepted three times and lost a fumble.

The veteran New England quarterback ended up with 154 yards passing on 23 completions in 42 attempts.

The Ravens' Joe Flacco completed 4-of-10 passes for just 32 yards.
