Broncos rout Ravens 34-17 for 9th straight win
Question of the Day
Chris Harris returned an interception 98 yards for a momentum-turning touchdown, and Denver cruised to its ninth straight victory in surprisingly easy fashion.
Manning threw for 204 yards and a score in his ninth consecutive win against Baltimore, the first with theBroncos (11-3).
This was supposed to be a test for Denver, which was 0-5 in Baltimore and was eager to face a quality opponent on the road.
Down 10-0 late in the first half, the Ravens had a first-and-goal at the Denver 4 when Harris stepped in front of Anquan Boldin, picked off a pass by Joe Flacco and sprinted down the right sideline with Flacco in pursuit. The quarterback tripped up Harris, who tumbled into the end zone, leaving Flacco flat on his stomach and with a cut lip.
“He just ran the out route and I was waiting to see when he was going to look back at the quarterback,” Harris said. “As soon as he looked back, I looked back and the ball was there. I just made a play on the ball.”
It was the longest regular-season interception return in Broncos history, and it turned a close game into a rout.
“I made a mistake. No other way to say it,” Flacco said.
“Baltimore had some momentum there on the drive and looks like they’re probably going to get the touchdown — plus they get the ball the first series of the second half,” Manning said.
“So just a huge play. The turnover is good, the fact that he took it all the way to the house for a touchdown was even bigger. Big play, big swing in the game, in the momentum. I thought it kind of jump-started everything in the second half for us.”
The Ravens (9-5) were playing their first game under Caldwell, who replaced the fired Cam Cameron. Baltimore’s offense sputtered in the first half, gaining only 119 yards and committing two turnovers that led to 10 Denver points.
