Ravens Vs. Broncos Preview
The Baltimore Ravens start their season in Denver. The last time the Ravens were put in this position was the start of the 2013 season when the Ravens got clobbered by 7 Peyton Manning touchdown passes.
This is a different Ravens team than the 2013 squad that finished 8-8, just scraping out what they could manage. The 2015 Ravens look like Super Bowl contenders, they aren’t afraid of the Broncos.
The Broncos are a pretty good team as well. When you look at Peyton Manning you know he is still capable of doing some incredible things. The Broncos still have Demaryius Thomas and big play capability. Their defense is loaded with talent. The Ravens have their work cut out for them.
You know how this game is supposed to go. Peyton is supposed to school the Ravens and the football world celebtates the loss of the “Bad Guys.” Well the Ravens are coming for the Broncos and they don’t really care about being underdogs.
The Ravens offense is going to make a definitive statement to the rest of the National Football League on Sunday. The Ravens have perhaps the most dominant offensive line in football. Two Pro-Bowl caliber guards in Marshall Yanda and Kelechi Osemele lead the way for the Ravens rushing attack.
If the Ravens can establish their ground attack (and they believe they can do it against anyone) the Ravens should be able to sustain long drives.
The defense will knock Manning out of his rhythm and the Ravens will come up with just enough stops to win.
