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.
Baltimore vs Denver - To put it bluntly, the Ravens defense is old. They are experienced but they're old. Yes Ray Lewis is back and yes he's going to the HOF as soon as he's eligible but, that doesn't mean he's the same player now. The Ravens beat a rookie QB at home last week, they're not getting that match-up this week. The Ravens offense continues to struggle with Flacco at the helm. Yes he put up some yards last week but 12-23 is not impressive. Ray Rice was also a non factor last week which is an even bigger issue.
The Broncos offense is clicking right now and Manning is happy to have a solid run...
