Technically, the Broncos haven’t played a team of substance on the way to their 3-0 start, however, they beat those three teams in convincing fashion racking up a +50 point differential while only giving up 8.5 points per game.
That second-ranked defense in the NFL is going up against the sixth-ranked offense led by quarterback Lamar Jackson. This will put the Broncos defense to the test and help us see if they are truly a defensive unit to be reckoned with in 2021.
On the offensive side of the ball, Teddy Bridgewater and the Broncos have been efficient leading to the 16th ranked offense in the NFL. Don’t let that fool you, though. They are 14th in passing and 10th in rushing. They appear to be a balanced unit. The Ravens are not. They are the league’s top ranked rushing attack, but are 20th in passing.
Hopefully it is a good game and the Broncos come out on top.
Here’s how to watch.

If you see BLUE in the map below, you will at least get the Broncos-Ravens game on your local CBS affiliate station this week. It’s definitely not the premiere game judging by the coverage here, so you can forget about it if you live in Alaska or Hawaii.

Broncos Betting Odds
The Broncos initially were slight favorites over the Ravens to begin the week, but the line has slowly been shifting away from Denver and towards Baltimore. So much so that the Ravens are now a road favorite by 1-point.
The Broncos and Ravens have had a bitter rivalry over the years and that’s just when the team has been in Baltimore. If you go back to the 1980s you could even include those great playoff matchups with the Cleveland Browns. Since the move to Baltimore, however, they have had some good games. Denver has had the better of them in recent years winning three of the last five, but overall the series is tied up 6-6. In the playoffs, the Ravens are a perfect 2-0 against the Broncos.
