The Baltimore Ravens are advancing to the AFC Conference Championship after defeating the Denver Broncos, 38-35, in double overtime of the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs on Saturday.

Quarterback Peyton Manning had a strong game for the Broncos with three touchdown passes and 290 passing yards, but an interception in the final minutes of the first overtime set up the Ravens with an opportunity to drive 16 yards and set up a 47-yard field goal for Justin Tucker.

Kick returner Trindon Holliday set the tone for the Broncos with a 90-yard punt return touchdown less than three minutes in to the game. Holliday had the Broncos in front early and lightning struck twice when he returned the opening kickoff of the second half 104 yards for a touchdown.

With just 31 seconds remaining in regulation, the Ravens managed to tie the game with a 70-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Jacoby Jones. It was one of three touchdowns for Flacco, who found Torrey Smith twice in the first half from 59 and 32 yards.

Baltimore will advance to play the winner of Sunday's game between the New England Patriots and Houston Texans. Kickoff of that game is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. MT, with television coverage on CBS.
