The Broncos ran away with the game behind the arm of one of the best quarterbacks of all time. Manning set a record throwing for 7 touchdowns in the game. The first quarter looked like it was going to be a close game. The Broncos went into the locker room trailing the Ravens by 3 points. They came out in the second half and completely dominated the game. It took Manning just 2:30 to get his Broncos into the end zone in the 3rd quarter.
