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.
