Baltimore Ravens (11-6) at Denver Broncos (13-3)
Game Day: Sunday 1:30 p.m. ET, FOX
Line: Broncos -9 ½
Series Record: Denver leads 10-3 (1-0 this season)
Up to the point of Denvers bye week, Week 7 of the NFL season, questions still remained on whether Peyton Manning could rebound from his 2011 neck injuries and lead a team back to the playoffs and beyond. The Broncos were 3-3 at the bye. Typically, past Manning-led team did not know what .500 football looked like.
Little did the league know that the week before the bye, a 35-24 Denver win at San Diego, stood as commencement of an 11-game stretch in which the Broncos would not lose a game. It now stands to say that Manning, while not the same quarterback he was before, is still Peyton-Freaking-Manning.
In Week 15, the Broncos provided perhaps a foreshadowing of this weeks matchup, when they throttled the Baltimore Ravens to the tune of 34-17. Manning was not at his finest in that game. But, the contest was another piece of proo...
BEST OF MAXIM
Ravens defensive lineman Paul Kruger took a shot at Peyton Manning on Twitter after his team beat the Broncos. See what he said.
Just what I was thinking when I saw Peyton hopping up and down on the sidelines.

This is one of the more interesting questions as the NFL kicks off its divisional playoffs later today. Peyton Manning’s record in cold weather games hasn’t been great, and now we hear he’ll be wearing gloves for this playoff game. The Broncos are heavy favorites today as they host the Ravens, and many Ravens fans and those betters taking the points are hoping Peyton will freeze...
Is Brady a better bet than the Broncos?Peyton Manning and company have won 11 consecutive games. They've got home field advantage throughout the playoffs, and the best odds (11/4) of any NFL team to win the Super Bowl. But should they really be considered the team most likely to win it all? It's possible their winning streak has a lot to do with their schedule. They...
The Ravens shocked football fans on Saturday by taking down the Denver Broncos who came out of the gate strong and from the outset looked to be setting the tone. The Ravens kept their cool and battled back in double overtime to defeat the Broncos 38-35. And while much was made about Peyton Manning’s nine [...]
That was quick.
On their third offensive play of the game, Denver quarterback Peyton Manning threw a pick-six to cornerback Corey Graham.
Graham’s interception gave the Ravens a 14-7 lead with less than 10 minutes left in the first quarter. The interception was set up by a Chykie Brown tipped pass.
Who will you be rooting for on Saturday? Baltimore or Denver?
Raj: I got a lot of criticism for fellow Patriots fans on twitter for my decision to root for the Ravens last Sunday and that isn't changing. One reason is because Ray Rice carried Rutgers to glory and I am a Jersey guy. Pride apart, I also rooted for the Ravens because let's be honest, who is a much tougher...
The Ravens and Broncos will feature a bit of a chess match between Peyton Manning and Ray Lewis, two of the biggest names in the game. The night game, Green Bay at San Francisco, features quarterbacks with two very different levels of experience.
Baltimore Ravens at Denver Broncos
The Broncos are the favorites in this one, not only because of their record but also because they have a decided advantage at home. The Broncos are 7-1 at home and the Ravens haven been mediocre on the road as their 4-4 record indicates. What is worse for the Ravens is that Joe Flacco's quarterback rating drops nearly 25 points when he...
The morning after the Baltimore Ravens came from behind to beat the top seeded Broncos at home the discussion isn’t about Joe Flacco’s impressive run of recent playoff success; nor is it about Denver’s interesting clock management decisions that came back to haunt them, it is centered on Peyton Manning’s legacy - but disparaging the quarterback is misguided...
In an industry that seemingly devolves day after day, finding the most inept, inane sportswriter can sometimes prove more difficult than expected. Last year, the title was pretty much up for grabs until the fall, whereupon Mitch Albom blew away the “competition” with a steaming pile of word turds related to the AL MVP race. This year, however, I think we can give the damn thing...
