BALTIMORE, Dec. 22 (UPI) -- LeGarrette Blount ran for two touchdowns Sunday and newly crowned AFC East champion New England rolled to a 41-7 victory over Baltimore.

Blount picked up 76 yards on 16 carries for the Patriots (11-4), who clinched their fifth straight division crown earlier Sunday when Buffalo beat Miami.

Tom Brady made good on 14-of-26 passes for 172 yards with a touchdown.

Logan Ryan notched a pair of interceptions while Chandler Jones and Tavon Wilson each added a defensive score as the Patriots kept pace one game behind Denver for the AFC's best record.

Joe Flacco was sacked four times for the Ravens (8-7), whose loss handed the AFC North title to Cincinnati.

He finished 22-of-38 through the air for 260 yards and ran for a touchdown.

The Ravens' quest for an AFC wild-card berth remained unsettled heading into the final week of the regular season.
