Found January 12, 2013 on 60 Max Power O:

It was supposed to be an easy day for the Denver Broncos by all accounts, but the Baltimore went toe to toe, tit for tat with them throughout, and in the first overtime period, Peyton Manning rolled out in Brett Favre like fashion and threw the interception that eventually set up Justin Tucker's 47-yard game winning field goal in double OT. Ray Lewis lives to see another NFL game, and Joe Flacco looks to continue answering his critics who question his so-called elite status by taking it one step further into the playoffs, with a chance to win it all. RB Ray Rice racked up 133 yards, and cornerback Champ Bailey was abused early on by Joe Flacco (18/34, 331 yards and 3TDs) and receiver Torrey Smith. Smith had 2 TDs and only caught three passes all game, but two of them loomed quite large. The first, a 59-yard reception for a 1st quarter TD, and a 2nd quarter 32-yard TD as Bailey just couldn't keep up with him. This game was action packed to say the least, and it all came down to Peyton Manning rolling to his right and throwing across his body on 2nd down into the hands of Ravens CB Corey Graham. Ray finished off the day rushing for as many yards as he could to give Tucker a good chance.  The number one seed is finished and Baltimore looks ahead to next week, when they'll travel either to Houston or Foxboro.

Broncos Champ Bailey looks like a fool thanks to Torrey Smith

Denver Broncos All-Pro cornerback Champ Bailey told the CBS announcers that he would have no problem with Ravens Torrey Smith, so much for that. In just the first-half, Smith has 91 yards on two catches and two touchdowns all while matched up against Champ Bailey. Let’s also not forget he was wide open for a third potential touchdown that was overthrown by quarterback Joe Flacco...

After two playoff wins, Joe Flacco’s agent reiterates that Flacco is a ‘top-five, elite quaterback’

Joe Flacco’s agent Joe Linta started the debate over whether or not Joe Flacco is an elite quarterback last February when he publicly stated that Joe was indeed elite. Of course, Flacco was knee deep in contract negotiations at the time, so Linta was just trying to get his client the best deal possible. The fallout from Linta’s comments started a firestorm where Flacco ended...

Tucker kicks game-winning 47-yard field goal in double overtime

What a game. With possession of the ball at the end of the first overtime and a first down, the Ravens needed just 10 yards to get in field goal range.

Ray Lewis and the culture of convenient and celebrity Christianity

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. 1/3/13 -”Do you want him to dance? He already dances. Do you...

Joe Flacco finds Jacoby Jones for game-tying touchdown in Ravens/Broncos divisional playoff game (Video)

With less than one minute to play in the AFC Divisonal playoff game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Denver Broncos, it appeared that the one-seeded Broncos were getting ready to host the New England Patriots up by the score of 35-27.

Ravens win double-overtime thriller in Denver

With Tebow nowhere in sight, it was Ravens defensive captain Ray Lewis this time preaching to viewers that “nothing is impossible with God.” Joe Flacco stripped the annoying monkey off his back (again) and orchestrated his offense (near-flawlessly) versus a defense that ranked 3rd against the pass (199.6 ypg). Without fear, he catapulted touchdowns, to Jacoby Jones (1) and Torrey...

The Assist: Peyton Manning & Ray Lewis share a moment following Ravens double-overtime win over the Broncos

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.

Protecting Peyton: Yes, the Denver Broncos are eliminated… but lets put the legacy talk in perspective

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...

Ravens player says Patriots do "suspect stuff on offense", includes spygate reference

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...

Round Table: Saturday Rooting

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...

Ravens-Broncos Live Blog, First Half

Ray-Ray vs. Pey-Pey is your narrative talking point for the first of three regular season rematches on Divisional Playoff weekend.
