Paul Kruger, OLB for the Baltimore Ravens is no doubt celebrating his team’s upset win over the Denver Broncos. Just a while ago, Kruger sent out this tweet:
Denver shoulda stuck with Tebow
— Paul Kruger (@pkruger99) January 13, 2013
In a game where many predicted it to not even be close, Joe Flacco hit Jacoby Jones with a 70 yard TD with under a minute to play. John Fox decided to play it conservative despite having all of his timeouts and time left to drive down the field. The end result was a Ravens win.
Despite the final score’s indication, the Raven’s D was stout throughout the day, only allowing 21 points, and forcing multiple turnovers. Kruger finished with 3 tackles, but he was able to generate plenty of pressure on Manning. Last season, the Denver Broncos made the post season with an 8-8 record, and Tebow led the team to an overtime win against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Mile High. Peyton Manning on the other hand started his playoff career with the Denver Broncos sour, throwing two picks, one of which cost the Broncos the game, and also losing a fumble.
For the second straight year, the Ravens move on to the AFC Championship game to play either Houston or New England.

Ravens defensive lineman Paul Kruger took a shot at Peyton Manning on Twitter after his team beat the Broncos. See what he said.
While watching tonight’s Patriots – Texans game, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo went on Twitter and claimed that the Patriots’ offense is cheap and a gimmick. New England does some suspect stuff on offense. Can’t really respect it. Comparable to a cheap shot b4 a fight — Brendon Ayanbadejo (@brendon310) January 13, 2013 Are you watching the game pats vs...
So it didn't take long for the very mouthy Ravens to start trash talking the Patriots.This time it wasn't Ray Lewis, it wasn't Terrell Suggs. Nope, it was someone you've never heard of. Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo. He pretty much pulled out all the hard hitters on this one.New England does some suspect stuff on offense. Can't really respect it. Comparable...
For the Ravens:
Out: G Jah Reid (toe). Reid was placed on injured reserve and the team activated cornerback Asa Jackson from suspension.
Probable: WR Anquan Boldin (shoulder), WR Tandon Doss (ankle), LB Dannell Ellerbe (ankle), LB Adrian Hamilton (illness), FB Vonta Leach (knee/ankle), LB Ray Lewis (triceps), LB Albert McClellan (shoulder), DE Pernell McPhee (thigh), DT Haloti Ngata...
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.
Last night, NFL pundits celebrated the illustrious career of one of the fiercest competitors to ever don an NFL uniform. From the analysts in the booth and studio to the hundreds of media types tweeting sentimental snippets, Lewis was hailed as a great leader, a great competitor, a great tackler…great, great, great.

In what was one of the best games of this season, or any season for that matter. Two of the greatest to ever play their positions faced off. Ray and the Ravens got the best of Peyton and the Broncos, but it was a game for the ages. Nothing but respect for both these guys.-TO
If Peyton Manning Was A Whale
Ray Lewis Has One Last Run
The Ravens are not the same defense they were a few years ago, the Broncos are going to roll.
The Wildcard games disappointed for one reason, quarterback play. That will not be a problem this weekend. The marquee quarterbacks are off their bye weeks and are ready to lead their teams onto the field.
Here is a look at the games and my selection of the winners.
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.
