Final Score: Denver 34, Baltimore 17
The Denver Broncos won in Baltimore for the time since John Elway's second career start as the Bronco's quarterback. Elway was back on the sidelines for Denver, this time as a member of the Broncos' front office.
Baltimore football fans will never forget Elway and his refusal to play for their city. They may hate him even more since he procured the services of "Raven killer" Peyton Manning to lead his team. Peyton Manning now boasts a personal 9-0 record against the Baltimore Ravens after today's beatdown.
A depleted Baltimore defense did its best to keep its team in the game, but as the Ravens limp forward the AFC North title may be slipping from their once firm grasp. With tough tests in the next two weeks, the Ravens won't get any sympathy from their AFC North rivals.
Here are my game grades for every Baltimore Ravens player of note.
