Baltimore Ravens

Game Preview: Ravens vs. Broncos

The Baltimore Ravens take on the Denver Broncos in the divisional playoffs this Saturday, January 12th at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, as the Ravens try to advance their franchise towards their second Super Bowl win in their relatively short history. The Ravens and the Broncos last met in Week 15 of the regular season, when the Ravens lost at home to the Broncos, 34-17. Ravens QB Joe Flacco struggled with completions and turnovers in the last matchup between these two teams, completing only 20 of 40 attempted passes and throwing an interception that Broncos CB Chris Harris was able to return for a 98-yard touchdown. However, the Ravens were missing Ray Lewis, their star linebacker, for that game, as well as outstanding safety Bernard Pollard, who are now both recovered from their injuries and will be playing in tomorrow's game against the Broncos. Ravens fans will be hoping that these two players will help prevent a repeat of Week 15, along with their dual rushing threats, RB Ray Rice and rookie RB Bernard Pierce. Pierce has racked up an impressive 315 yards in his last three games, and led the Ravens in rushing with 123 yards in their decisive 33-14 win over the New York Giants in Week 16. Don't miss your chance to see the Ravens knock-out their AFC rivals live and in- person.

Maxim Tickets also features Ravens tickets and parking passes to all of their potential postseason appearances.

Broncos QB Peyton Manning, who was sidelined the entire 2011 season while he recovered from neck surgeries, has had a career resurgence this season and is a contender for MVP of the year. Manning has won his last nine matchups against the Ravens, including last month's 34-17 home victory. However, Baltimore Ravens fans may have an ally in the cold Colorado weather. The weather forecast for tomorrow's game in Denver is predicting temperatures in the low 20s and Manning, a New Orleans native, has a reputation for not performing as well in colder temperatures. For this reason, the Broncos might be relying more heavily on Knowshon Moreno's rushing abilities, and less on Manning's passing game. Moreno has rushed for a total of 510 yards over the last six Broncos regular season games, including a highlight reel-worthy leap over Ravens safety Ed Reed in the last Ravens-Broncos game.
