Another New England postseason loss brought on another rant from a Patriots' spouse.

Last season, Tom Brady's wife Giselle Bundchen ripped Wes Welker for a big drop in Super Bowl XLVI. Last Sunday, Welker's wife, Anna Burns Welker, took to Facebook to rip Ray Lewis after the Patriots' 28-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

"Proud of my husband and the Pats," Burns Welker wrote. "By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis' Wikipedia page. 6 kids, 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!"

On Monday, Burns Welker apologized for her emotional rant in a statement to Larry Brown Sports:

"I'm deeply sorry for my recent post on Facebook. I let the competitiveness of the game and the comments people were making about a team I dearly love get the best of me. My actions were emotional and irrational and I sincerely apologize to Ray Lewis and anyone affected by my comment after yesterday's game.

"It is such an accomplishment for any team to make it to the NFL playoffs, and the momentary frustration I felt should not overshadow the accomplishments of both of these amazing teams."
