Ravens Beat Broncos, Improve To 4-1

By Jesse Jones

Coming off an epic win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, there was speculation that the Baltimore Ravens would have a “hangover” against the Denver Broncos.  But this was not the case.

The Ravens dominated the Broncos from the start, driving into the red zone on their first three out of four drives.  Joe Flacco and Ray Rice each scored on one-yard runs to put the team up 14-0, and Billy Cundiff added a 37-yard field goal to put the Ravens up 17-0.  With under one minute left in the first half, it seemed Baltimore was going to go into half holding a shut out.  But the Broncos first-ranked pass offense wouldn’t allow that, as Kyle Orton completed a 42 yard pass to Brandon Lloyd for a touchdown, cutting the lead to 17-7.

The second half saw a scoreless third quarter, and saw Joe Flacco look completely out of sync at points.  But in the fourth quarter, the Ravens closed the game out, as Ray Rice scored another one-yard touchdown, and Willis McGahee scored on a 30-yard run.  Denver added a field goal inbetween those scores, and scored another long touchdown pass with under one minute left in the game to Brandon Lloyd.

The Baltimore Ravens would ultimately win the game 31-17.

Baltimore got exactly what it needed, and that was a huge game by Ray Rice.  Rice had not scored a touchdown or ran for over 100 yards until Sunday’s game.  In total, he finished the game with 133 yards and 2 touchdowns on 27 carries.  Flacco played solid for the most part, going 14-25 for 196 yards with no passing touchdowns and no turnovers.

The defense gave up over 300 yards to Kyle Orton, but only allowed two touchdowns, and both came with under a minute left in each half.  So far, the pass defense seems very solid, and the run defense is great as usual.

Baltimore now stands atop the AFC North alone, with a record of 4-1.  The Ravens will travel to New England Sunday to face the 3-1 Patriots who are now without Randy Moss and brought back Deon Branch.


NFL Network FAIL

By Jesse Jones

In last night’s game between the Broncos and the Giants, the NFL Network had a expletive dropped on national television.  After a few mistakes by Denver’s offensive line in the red zone that forced them into kicking a field goal, head coach Josh McDaniels was living.  I was watching the game, and as they showed McDaniels on the sideline, I heard “All we’re trying to do is win a motherf-ing game!” Excuse me?  Did everybody watching this game really just hear that?  Why, yes they did.

The NFL Network has apologized for this error, but does it really matter?  Not really.  Everybody would have known what he said even if they bleeped out the word.  Atleast McDaniels is fired up over the mistakes and making his team better.  I mean, after four straight losses and losing the division lead, what coach wouldn’t be mad?

The Broncos eventually won the game 26-6.


Redskins Win!!!

Broncos Redskins Football

By Ben Linton

Do you believe in miracles? Yes!! Well, maybe it wasn’t that important, but it does feel good to finally blog about the Washington Redskins in a positive manner. Today, they beat the Denver Broncos (6-3) by a score of 27-17 in a total team effort. They battled back from early mistakes and were able to pull of the upset against a formidable opponent. So there will be no Good, Bad, and Ugly this week, because its all good right now in D.C. Here are a few key stats though:

  • This win snaps a four-game losing streak for the Redskins (3-6)
  • 27 points is the highest total for Washington since week 2 of last season (29). This was the first time they score 20+ points all year, and it was against the NFL’s third-ranked defense.
  • Jason Campbell threw for 193 yards on 17 of 26 attempts for one touchdown and hit ten different recievers. The most important stat? NO TURNOVERS.
  • Running Backs Ladell Betts (114 yds, td) and Rock Cartwright (41 yards) carried to load for the injured Clinton Portis as Washington ran for 174 yards, the best effort of the season.
  • Take away the 115 yards on the two big plays to Brandon Marshall, and the Defense only gave up 190 yards of total offense. Good job of staying strong throughout the game.

The Broncos have now lost three straight, all to very physical teams (Baltimore, Pittsburgh, and Washington). As a Redskins fan/blogger, this is just a great feeling to finally pull one out after weeks and weeks of disappointment. Hopefully the Skins can keep it up, because they roll into Dallas next weekend for a big rivalry game.



Ravens End Broncos Streak

Ravens Broncos

Right Before Mason's TD Reception

By Jesse Jones

Coming into today’s game between the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens, the Ravens were losers of three straight, and the Broncos were undefeated.  To the odds makers however, that did not matter, as the Ravens were 3.5 point favorites.  This proved to be right, somewhat.

The Ravens dominated from the first snap, with a sack on Kyle Orton.  To start the second half, rookie Webb returned the kickoff 95 yards to the house, putting the Ravens up 20-7.  From then on, there was no question about the game.  The defense played a great game on a very good offense, and contained Eddie Royal in the kick game.  Joe Flacco went 20-25, completing his last 14 passes, with 1 TD.  Ray Rice scored a TD in the final minutes of the game, to cement the game at 30-7.

The only negative that came out of this game was the injury to Haloti Ngata, who suffered a sprained ankle.  X-rays were negative.

Next week the team travels to Cincinnati to try and get revenge on a last second loss earlier in the season, followed by a Monday Night game in Cleveland.


Out For Preseason??


By Jesse Jones

Right when I turned my TV on this morning, I learned that Brandon Marshall has been suspended for the rest of preseason.  Why is that?!  Because he “goofed off” at the beginning of practice yesterday.

I can understand a punishment for this, like a fine, but to be suspended for the rest of preseason might just be a little over the top.  Denver, Brandon Marshall does not even want to play for your team and he has expressed that numerous times throughout the offseason.  You think this will help?  You might as well trade him anyways since you aren’t going to play him.  Really, you are just hurting your team and your fan base.  Good luck this season though….
