    Week 9 Broncos 16 Ravens 14

    "Awesome game that no-one saw" was the front page of the Denver post this morning, as technical difficulties took away from some of the exitement of the game, outside of the participating team members and fans. This was a game where both teams were very familiar with eachother and their gameplans.

    The game started rocky for the visiting Ravens when they recieve the ball and from the third play of the game Flacco throws a costly INT into the hands of Alphonso Smith with nothing but daylight to the endzone.

    That play might have changed the whole game, Ravens just could not get their offense started in the first half. Denver, with an early lead, kept the ball throughout the half behind running-back Moreno. And throwing timely first down passes.

    But every time the Broncos looked to break open the game, the Ravens highly touted defense would stiffen up and hold the Broncos to FG's

    The Broncos would go to half with a 13-0 lead, which was actually a good thing for the Ravens considering the total yds discrepancy (DEN 212 Bal 48)

    3rd quarter was quiet. The Broncos continued to play conservative football not to give up a defensive score or something that has plagued them in the past.

    The Ravens woke up in the fourth and started to show signs of life as they score their first points with about 5 minutes to play. The Broncos now only up less than one score started to feel the pressure of the Ravens' defense, and the fact that they are in trouble after being in the driver seat the whole game.

    The Ravens defense forces another Denver punt and got the ball back with alot of confidence, You could cut this pressure with a knife. They took the ball down the field and ended up giving it to McClain at the 1 yd line to put the Ravens up by one with about a minute to play. The faces on the Broncos players was unbelievable. But they had to play on.

    They get the ball at their 27 yd line, on 3rd and 10, Kelly James, who was on-point with his passes all game, connected with TE Zach Miller for a game saving first down at the 50. Followed by a few more catches and runs down to the 25 yd line with 24 second left to play.

    Prater nailed a 42 yard FG to take back the lead and the hearts of the Denver players and fans.

    The amazing linebacker INT's showed up as Aaron Curry seals it with an INT at the end.

    Great game Mike, sucks someone had to lose this one, but i would have pulled my hair out if u pulled that game out.

    Will post stats when i get home later
