Baltimore Ravens Give Broncos First Season Loss

Ash AndersonContributor INovember 1, 2009

The Baltimore Ravens today defeated the Denver Broncos and in doing so handed them their first loss of the season. The Ravens made the game look like a cake-walk winning 30-7.

The highlight of today's game was a 95 yard kickoff return by Ravens rookie Lardarius Webb which pretty much signalled the end of the game and the end of a perfect record for the Broncos.

Denver's only score in this game came courtesy of a 1-yard touchdown run from Knowshon Moreno which was then followed up with a successful conversion from Matt Prater.

Kyle Orton on the day threw 23/37 for 152-yards with zero touchdown's. Today's game was the first this season that Orton didn't manage to put at least six points up on the board. 152-yards is also Orton's lowest yardage this season.

Across the other-side of the field Joe Flacco had one of his best games this season. Flacco threw 20/25 for 175-yards and one TD. That's an 80% throwing accuracy.

With the win today the Baltimore Ravens break a three game losing streak and keep themselves close to the leaders of the AFC North, the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers both of which are 5-2.
