It’s another week and another win for the Denver Broncos if we here at Mile High Report have anything to say about it.
Most of us have the Broncos beating the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in a close tight-knit game, but one staffer went full optimism predicting a blowout for Teddy Bridgewater and the Broncos. I don’t know about that, but we’ll see! Collectively, we have the Broncos winning 24-20 over the Ravens.
Here is how we see things playing out individually.

In the Dublin to Denver podcast above, I joined Irish Broncos fans Michael McQuaid, Colum Cronin, and Stewart Roche on their show to talk about the game. Each and every one of us think the Broncos could win this game and if they do it’ll be a close one. I went with the field goal winning drive by Teddy Bridgewater to lift Denver to a 4-0 start to the season. Oh, and I include their score predictions in the collective score above too just for fun. - Tim Lynch

Beyond Jackson and the pressure scheme, there’s two big questions that will define this game. Will Denver’s ground game do enough and can the pass rush keep Lamar from settling down in the pocket. If both come together and I think they will, this Fangio defense rains fire on Lamar Jackson and the Ravens fall behind early, which gives Shurmur and the Bridgewater offense a little cushion to play ball control and slowly eat the clock. - Joe Rowles

The defense has been very good this year, but will face its toughest test in the Baltimore Ravens. Containing Lamar Jackson will be paramount to proving that the Broncos are a legitimate contender in the AFC. The defense is not the main concern. Most of the questions are about the offense. If Bridgewater can be efficient and lead the offense on some effective drives, the Broncos should come away victorious, after a Brandon McManus field goal. - Adam Malnati

The difference in this game is Bridgewater. As Joe mentioned, I think the defense is going to be incredibly fired up. And given how Broncos Country brought the Rocky Mountain Thunder against the Jets, expect that to amp up to 11. But with Teddy 2 Gloves is the difference and will lead the Broncos to it’s biggest win in over five years. - Ian St. Clair
Broncos 20, Ravens 16
The Ravens are one of the better teams in the AFC, and this game is Denver’s chance to establish themselves in that group as well. With two very savvy defensive playcallers, I think this ends up being a relatively low scoring contest. The Broncos manage to limit Lamar Jackson & produce some long, efficient offensive scoring drives to make a statement win. - Taylor Kothe
