MHR Review: Game Preview No Bull Preview Injury Report 5 Questions Broadcast Map Inactives

Many of the offseason questions will begin to be answered for the 2015 Denver Broncos as they taken on the Baltimore Ravens. Are we going to see the Peyton Manning of early-2014 or late-2014? Fortunately, the answer to that question may not matter for the Broncos Super Bowl aspirations as the #OrangeRush looks poised to have a monster season.

I think the Ravens stop C.J. Anderson and the run game, so it will come down to Manning taking advantage of a weak Ravens secondary for some big plays. All before the Ravens elite pass rushers bear down on him.

On the other side of the ball, the only point of attack that I think the Ravens might have success at exploiting is running the ball inside. The Broncos defense is too fast for outside rushes and the secondary is elite. Joe Flacco is going to have a rough go at sustaining drives in my opinion.

Gary Kubiak will want to establish the run, but its going to be tough to get it going. Manning will be forced to audible his way to put up a respectable score to carry the Broncos past the Ravens in Week 1.

Prediction: Broncos 24, Ravens 13.

What is your prediction, Broncos Country?
