DENVER —** Neither offense may have found the end zone through three quarters, but each defense has. For the Broncos that was Aqib Talib, returning an interception 51 yards for the score.
The Broncos defense has consistently brought pressure against Ravens QB Joe Flacco, getting to him for two sacks so far. Brandon Marshall and DeMarcus Ware brought the heat on third down, helping end two drives.
Through three quarters, the Ravens have 44 rushing yards on 20 attempts (2.2-yard average) and have 52 net passing yards after the sack yardage.
Talib's third-quarter pick six took the Broncos from a 13-9 deficit to a 16-13 lead. He gained blockers as he got closer to the goal line, nimbly dodging would-be tacklers and outrunning Steve Smith Sr.
