Ravens Football Machine:
On a day when a Baltimore defense inundated with injury was able to give Peyton Manning everything he could handle and more, the Ravens offense did not show up like the cavalry they were supposed to be. In fact, Flacco and company gave points away to Denver. It was a disgraceful performance.
It wasn't all on Joe Flacco, although Joe admitted after the game the pick-6 he threw to Chris Harris was supposed to be a fade route which instead he changed to a shallow slant. Joe told the media he should have just thrown that ball away. Too bad---that mistake changed the entire momentum of the game in favor of Denver.
There were tons of other mistakes to go around. Dropped passes---I sound like a broken record on this, but Flacco's receivers must lead the league in drops. Terrible blocking abounded, too. Bobbie Williams tried his best to fill in for Marshal Yanda at right guard, but Denver went through him like a turnstile. The result was not only Flacco getting beaten to the...

For the holiday season, visitors to the Denver International Airport will be greeted over the PA system by the voice of Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
So Joe Flacco is basically a fluke at this point right? Only hardcore delusional Ravens fans would tell you otherwise. The real question here is, will this be bigger than Tebowing?? #Flaccoing is way easier to do and people love to give guys a hard time in the NFL when they are struggling. It's as easy as taking a nap too, which is basically what this guy does during...
Joe Flacco has lost three fumbles and thrown three interceptions in his last three games, each of which the Baltimore Ravens lost.
Flacco understands that an NFL quarterback often receives an inordinate amount of criticism in defeat and perhaps too much credit for a victory. And he's OK with it.
Asked how much blame he deserves for Baltimore's current skid, Flacco replies...
Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco threw an interception that was returned for a 98 yard touchdown in today’s game against the Denver Broncos. In the video you can see the only player remotely close to catching Chris Harris is Flacco himself, but even he falls short.
The Broncos beat the Ravens 34-17.

The Indianapolis Colts don't want to let another chance to wrap up a playoff spot slip away.
Indy (9-5) can earn its first playoff berth of the post-Peyton Manning era with a win Sunday at Kansas City or a Steelers loss to Cincinnati. The Colts want to take care of business themselves after a sub-par performance at Houston.
The Colts are 8-3 since Bruce Arians took over as...
Yesterday, I watched in awe as the Denver Broncos dismantled the Baltimore Ravens 34-17 in Baltimore. And the game wasn’t as close as the score would indicate. With their ninth straight victory, this one against one of the best AFC teams, the Broncos are becoming an NFL powerhouse.
The Broncos dominated the first half building a 10-0 lead. It was only because of the exceptional...
With the NFL entering its final two weeks, the MVP race is coming into clear focus.
Most of the attention right now is on the ever-present duo of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, with Adrian Peterson running in third place. So which one do you think should take home the hardware?
That’s the question that NESN Daily posed to Matt Chatham and Jeff Howe, who debated the issue on opposing...
(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer Eric Decker was the first of Peyton Manning's workout buddies, sneaking onto high school football fields in the spring to work on his rhythm and rapport with his new quarterback.
The sessions helped Manning regain his arm strength and rediscover his old form after a series of neck operations that sidelined...
This week playoff races usually start to sort themselves out as teams are able to establish themselves late in the season. This season is a little different as this Sunday only made the playoff picture even cloudier. Dallas, Washington, Minnesota, and Seattle all helped their cause while the Giants, Steelers and Bears put themselves in very intriguing positions. The race for...
HO HO HO! Merry Christmas everybody. This is the season for football, and what a marvelous season it has been so far. We have seen many things this 2012 season.It started with Bounty Gate and replacement refs, to field goals and touchdowns that weren't, to quarterback controversies, to the return of Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson (who both are top contenders for MVP and Comeback...
Shannon Smallwood posted an article in Rant Sports recently suggesting that Aaron Murray is Peyton Manning 2.0.
Think about these statements made over the years…(FILL IN THE BLANK) can’t win the big game.(FILL IN THE BLANK) makes too many mistakes.(FILL IN THE BLANK) makes poor decisions in big games.Starting to buy into it now aren’t you…

You’d think it was Peyton Manning and the Colts out there with the season on the line. It wasn’t. It was the 49ers in a late-season slugfest, in a game the Patriots had no business winning but had somehow fought their way back into.
So why are people upset that Bill Belichick went for it on 4th-and-1?
The 4th-and-1 in the final minutes of the Patriots’ loss to the 49ers on...
BALTIMORE -- Chris Harris returned a Joe Flacco interception 98 yards for a touchdown and Eric Decker caught a 51-yard touchdown pass, leading the Denver Broncos to a 34-17 rout over the Baltimore Ravens. Peyton Manning went 17 of 28 for 204 yards and a touchdown, running back Knowshon Moreno had 118 yards and a score and Decker added eight catches for 133 yards and the long touchdown...
Peyton Manning. Tom Brady. Aaron Rodgers. All of these quarterbacks have claimed MVP awards since the last running back – LaDainian Tomlinson – took home the honor in 2006. In what is largely considered a passing league, is 2012 the year this streak ends? Through 15 weeks of the season I am inclined to say yes. Because truly no player has been as valuable as Minnesota Vikings’...
