Ravens batter Broncos, take AFC North lead
BALTIMORE | The Denver Broncos should have seen it coming: another beatdown in Baltimore by the bruising, no-nonsense Ravens.
Baltimore (4-1) jumped to a 17-0 lead and coasted to its third straight win, the first this season by double digits. The Ravens moved past idle Pittsburgh into sole possession of first place in the AFC North.
As if there was any doubt?
“Sure, they’re one of the most physical teams in the league,” Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey said. “But sometimes their toughness overshadows the talent that they have. They aren’t just tough; they’re a good team.”
Orton completed his fourth straight 300-yard passing game with a 44-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Lloyd with 35 seconds left. It was of little consolation to the Broncos, who hurt themselves by losing a fumble and committing 10 penalties for 90 yards.
“They’re just so good,” Orton said. “It’s tough to play them anywhere. Just be honest, they beat us up today.”
Denver coach Josh McDaniels concurred.
“I’m disappointed. We didn’t play as tough as certainly you’re going to need to against a team like this,” he said. “This is the first time I thought our mental toughness was questioned.”
What was billed as a duel between the best aerial game in the league and the No. 1 pass defense turned into a mismatch.
That’s because Baltimore’s defense and running game were relentless.
