The Broncos face the Ravens in the first matchup of the divisional round this weekend. Here's what you need to know about both games on Saturday.

USA TODAY Sports

After taking a weekend off during the wildcard matchups, the Broncos finally get back to action on Saturday when they host the Ravens at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Denver and Baltimore are set to kickoff at 4:30 p.m., with CBS providing the coverage of the first AFC game from the divisional round.

These two teams faced off just weeks ago on Dec. 16. Peyton Manning was brought his usual efficient arm to the table, while Knowshon Moreno broke loose for 115 yards and a touchdown. The Broncos defense also contained Ray Rice, holding the Pro Bowl running back to just 38 yards on 12 carries.

Denver will have to keep a closer eye on Dennis Pitta this time around. The Raven's No. 1 tight end exploded for seven catches, 125 yards and two touchdowns in his last meeting with the Broncos.

The Packers take on the 49ers to close out Saturday's slate of games. Their matchup gets underway at 8:00 p.m. on FOX.
