Knowshon Moreno hurdles Ed Reed in Baltimore in a 34-17 Broncos win. (Ben Hays/Denver Broncos) THIS is the statement we needed to make this season! It hardly matters that we allowed a ridiculous garbage time TD (I mean, 4 missed tackles, are you kidding me?), we still put this game away before halftime! Heck, we even had a Brock Osweiler sighting, but more importantly is that the naysayers who claim that the Broncos haven’t beaten anybody have been silenced. Gone are the people who say we don’t have a killer instinct. Done are those who boast that we’re chumps because we struggled against Kansas City. Yes Broncos fans, today, we blew the doors off of the Ravens in Baltimore (a place where the Broncos have never won). While we’re discussing this glorious victory, how impressed are you with Knowshon Moreno? John Fox said 3 weeks ago that this was Moreno’s last chance; boy has he responded! Moreno with 100+ yards and a TD seems almost “ho hum” these days, doesn’t it? I’m telling you what, Moreno is going to be on this team next year, and if he keeps playing like he has since McGahee went down, he very well might be the starter next year (and for the Super Bowl this year). What does this victory mean? It means that the Broncos are legit. We completely destroyed a playoff team, and a team that beat the Patriots (a team we lost to). Not only did we beat the Ravens, we embarrassed them at home! We scored in the first half as well as the second half. We shut them down until the fourth quarter, and we refused to be content with just taking a 17-3 lead into the 4th quarter. This game was what we needed as a team. This game will put every team in the NFL on notice that if you don’t play perfect, you will be embarrassed. The NFL is on notice; This Broncos team is for real. Lets have it Broncos fans, give us your reactions to this thorough domination of the once mighty Baltimore Ravens. (Photo thanks)
