2012 Game-by-Game: Week 15

Posted Jul 24, 2012

In Week 15 of the 2012 season, the Broncos travel to Baltimore.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Over the next week, DenverBroncos.com will continue to preview the team's 2012 schedule, including a look at the last time the teams faced off, what to watch for this season and more.

In Week 15, two teams with at least one playoff win in 2011 square off in a late-season matchup.

Week 15: at Baltimore Ravens
Opponent

o DATE: Sunday, December 16
o TIME: 1:00 p.m. EST
o LOCATION: M&T Bank Stadium
o TELEVISION: CBS
o OPP. 2011 RECORD: 12-4
o ALL-TIME VS. OPP.: 3-6

THE LAST TIME: On October 10th, 2010, the Ravens put on an impressive performance on the ground to beat the Broncos 31-17 at M&T Bank Stadium. Ray Rice carried the ball 27 times for 127 yards and two touchdowns as Denver allowed a season-high 233 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns.

Baltimore scored the first 17 points of the game and ran the ball 29 times in the second half while passing it for just seven.

Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd caught the only two touchdowns of the game for Denver to go with his five catches and 135 yards.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: A Road Test
The Broncos have traveled to Baltimore five times in team history and have never returned with a victory. The closest they came to a road win against the Ravens was a 34-23 loss in 2002. The Ravens are so tough to beat at home because they control the football - they held the ball for over 36 minutes in 2010 - and play rock solid defense - the Broncos have averaged just 13 points in their last seven games against Baltimore dating back to 2000. 

KEY MATCHUP: Peyton Manning vs. Ravens Defense
Because of the Broncos' offensive futility against the Ravens in the past, quarterback Peyton Manning will be pivotal in changing the tide. Luckily for the Broncos, Manning has seen a great amount of success in his career against Baltimore. No. 18 has won his last eight contests against the Ravens throwing for 14 touchdowns and six interceptions in those games. He also averaged a quarterback rating of better than 95 in that span. Standing in his way will be the Baltimore defense, which sent four of its players to the Pro Bowl last year.

NOTES: This will be the 10th matchup between the Ravens and Broncos…Broncos running back Willis McGahee spent four years with the Ravens before coming to Denver in 2011…Defensive tackle Justin Bannan also did a four-year stint with Baltimore, from 2006-09.
