Broncos Defensive collapse and turnovers leads to Ravens win

The Broncos essentially had the game won with a 7 point lead when Jacoby Jones caught a 70 yard pass from Joe Flaco over Tony Carter, and Rahim Moore.

Then in the over time Denver QB Peyton threw an ill advised pass to Stokley that was intercepted by the Ravens, and setup the game winning field goal.

Champ Bailey was burned twice by Flacco on long passes that led to Ravens TDs. In the first quarter Torrey Smith caught a long bomb over Bailey for a 59 yard TD. Flacco had all day most of the game with Miller and Dumervil only producing .5 sacks each.

The big play maker for the Broncos was Trindon Holliday with both a kick off and a punt return for TDs. The Holliday kick off return was 104 yards for a TD in the third quarter.

Manning had 290 yards passing and 3 TDs, and 2 interceptions which led to Ravens scores. Stokley had a nice 15 yard TD catch in the first quarter.

The Broncos ended the season with a disappointing 38-35 loss to the Ravens. The Broncos were much like last seasons Packers team where they played well in the regular season, but fell short in the playoffs.

The Broncos secondary and pass rush playing as poorly as they did against the Ravens would have had very little chance against the Patriots in the AFC championship. The fairly good run defense might have derailed Houston--if the Texans advance.

The Broncos need to rework their defensive secondary, and try to play better in the playoffs next season (if they return to the playoffs).
