The Denver Broncos host the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday afternoon in a battle on teams that were heading in opposite directions as the season ended. The Broncos have reeled off 11 straight wins in a run that earned them home field advantage throughout the AFC Playoffs. The Ravens stumbled down the stretch and barely held off the Bengals for the AFC North title after holding a commanding lead earlier in the season.
The two teams met in Week 15 with the Broncos dominating the Ravens in Baltimore. Denver jumped out to a 31-3 lead by the end of the third quarter on the way to an easy 34-17 victory. Peyton Manning didn't need to put up big numbers, as he threw for just 204 yards and once score. The Broncos capitalized on two Baltimore turnovers, including a 98-yard interception return for a touchdown.
Baltimore beat the Indianapolis Colts to advance to the Divisional matchup with Denver.
