(Above stats from regular season)
Thoughts: The Ravens took down the Indianapolis Colts in an AFC Wild Card clash last week while the Broncos defeated the Kansas City Chiefs to end the regular season. Denver has been rolling and look like a team of dynasty while Baltimore is riding an emotional high with Ray Lewis retiring at the end of the year. Denver wins here but give me the Ravens with the points as well as the over.
