By The Numbers: How The Broncos Stack Up Against The Ravens
The Denver Broncos are off to their best start since the 2018 season when they also started 3-0 but this season feels a little different than that one that ended up being...less than memorable as the team ended up 6-10. It's not how you start, but how you finish and I feel like THIS team is much more balanced and quite frankly a lot stronger all around than that 2018 squad that collapsed down the stretch. This team (in my opinion) has something special about it and it's pretty cool to see.
The Broncos are coming off a big shutout win in their home opener where the environment was absolutely electric, I know because...I was there with my 6 year old and we had a blast. Now, Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens coming to the Mile High City coming off a miraculous win last Sunday in Detroit where kicker Justin Tucker nailed a game winning and record breaking 67 yard field goal on the last play of the game that bounced off the crossbar and over for the unbelievable win.
Crazy right? The Ravens and Broncos have had a brief but fairly eventful matchup history with the Ravens leading the series 8-6 which includes a couple of playoff matchups where the Broncos took one in Baltimore and the Ravens "stole" one in 2012 at then named "Invesco Field" on THIS heartbreaking play during Peyton Manning's first year in the Divisional Playoff. This play tied the game and sent it into overtime where the Broncos lost 38-35 in double OT.
Ok...enough of THAT game. Let's focus on the present where both teams have stacked lineups and both teams are playing winning football despite the injury bug that's been going around.
The Ravens have been hit hard with both their starting running back JK Dobbins and cornerback Marlon Humphries both out for the year due to knee injuries and for the Broncos, it's hit their two young wide receivers in Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler who was injured midway through last week's game.
This week, the 2-1 Ravens take on the 3-0 Denver Broncos, who haven't started 4-0 since the 2016 season in a matchup that could propel either team into the upper tier of contenders in the AFC this season.
Here's what the matchup looks like...
