No. 6 Boise State uses a 30-yard pass on a fake punt from its 33-yard line to set up a tie-breaking fourth-quarter touchdown and lead the Broncos to a 17-10 victory over No. 3 Texas Christian in a battle of unbeaten teams that were denied a spot in the Bowl Championship Series title game.

In about a four hour span Sunday, the Denver Broncos went from offensive juggernaut to overmatched and overwhelmed against a swarming Seattle Seahawks defense that is among the best in recent memory. The Broncos are better than the team that barely showed up for the Super Bowl. They just picked the worst possible time to play their worst four quarters of the season. The stars had seemed to be aligned for the Broncos to win the Super Bowl and for quarterback Peyton Manning, the NFL's Most Valuable Player, to further bolster his legacy.

Ravens run offense vs. Broncos run defense: Ray Rice is expected to return to the starting lineup after being limited last Sunday with a bruised right knee. That could provide a boost to a Ravens running attack that is averaging 3 yards per carry (second-worst in the NFL). Rice, whose carries have decreased every week since the season opener, is due for a breakout game. Denver is tied for 12th in the NFL in run defense after containing Tennessee's Chris Johnson (53 yards on 19 carries)

Pay attention, Pete Carroll. A Seahawks coach has your game plan vs. Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning figured out -- he's just not on the Seattle staff. South River Seahawks football coach Lance Clelland said that if he were coaching this weekend, his focus would be on forcing Manning and the Broncos offense out of their comfort zone. "The Seattle Seahawks certainly have a big challenge defensively," Clelland said Friday. "I am sure they would agree that when facing such a great QB and historic passing offense, the plan is to slow them down and disrupt Denver's offensive rhythm and timing more than anything else.

Well, that depends Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune Really, there should be two sets of expectations for the Broncos in 2012. The first set of expectations assumes Peyton Manning is healthy and as able as he was earlier in his career. If that is the case, they look like the best team in the AFC West and one of the best teams in the conference. Even if all goes well with Manning though, predictions of a Lombardi Trophy may be a bit optimistic. This still is a young team with holes, and there will be a learning curve for Manning.

Kevin Cowherd Ravens 27, Broncos 24 Only because the Ravens are at home. And they're desperate. And they might have Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs back. And a three-game losing streak would cause The Castle to implode. Edward Lee Broncos 30, Ravens 17 The Broncos are 0-5 all time against the Ravens in Baltimore, but the Ravens are reeling, and a change from Cam Cameron to Jim Caldwell at offensive coordinator isn't the end-all solution. Peyton Manning will fortify his candidacy to be named the NFL's Most Valuable Player.

It can be argued the Broncos' three best defensive players the past two seasons were Von Miller, Champ Bailey and Elvis Dumervil. There were three Broncos players named as Pro Bowl starters in 2011: Miller, Bailey and Dumervil. In 2012, there were three Broncos defensive players, and only three, who were named to the Pro Bowl team: Miller, Bailey and Dumervil. But when the Broncos open the 2013 season Thursday night at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Miller, Bailey and Dumervil will not be playing against $20 million quarterback Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens.

With a wrecking-ball defense, the Broncos came to the NFL town Ray Lewis built and tore it down. Forty-five minutes after Denver's 34-17 victory against Baltimore, a tractor swept the stadium turf, picking up the shards of quarterback Joe Flacco's ego. And for every team with a coaching vacancy, write down these three words: Jack Del Rio. On their seventh defensive coordinator in seven years, the Broncos love Del Rio. "I just don't know how...

The purple-and-black clad Ravens long have been the NFL's bruise brothers. With linebacker Ray Lewis leading the bullying, the Ravens' defense beat people up and laid down the law, especially when playing at home. The Broncos know that first-hand. They are 0-5 against the Ravens in Baltimore, including a 21-3 wild-card playoff loss in 2000. But this year's Broncos believe they are developing their own rock 'em, sock 'em defense. “I think [offensive coordinator Jack] Del Rio has preached from Day 1 that he wants gritty, tough guys on this defense,” said defensive tackle Justin Bannan, who played for the Ravens from 2006-09.

An undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin, Leonhard played in 94 NFL games since 2005 with the Buffalo Bills, Ravens and Jets. He has 326 tackles, six interceptions (one returned for a touchdown)

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is largely the reason that free safety Michael Huff lost his starting job with the Ravens. Now, he's the reason that Huff will get a chance to play in the Super Bowl. It's been a rollercoaster season for Huff, the former first-round pick who signed a three-year, $6 million deal with the Ravens in late March to replace long-time star Ed Reed . However, Huff started just one game with the Ravens before he was demoted, a result of getting repeatedly torched by Manning and company in the Broncos' regular-season opening 49-27 victory over Baltimore.

The difference for the Patriots this week might be in the Broncos' run defense, which could lead to a passing-frenzy that will give the Broncos a slight edge.

During the first few weeks of the NFL season, it seemed apparent that the AFC North would be hard-pressed to send more than one team into the playoffs this year. The seeming parity in the division pointed to a second-place team finishing around .500, and the sudden emergence of the Kansas City Chiefs as a very strong playoff contender in the West left room to speculate that there really is only one wild card berth in play in the conference. That is all still the case, but the landscape in the AFC has changed pretty dramatically over the course of the first half of the season.

Dean Pees didn't hide his disappointment two weeks ago as he stood in front of reporters and discussed a Ravens defense that had allowed seven touchdowns and 510 total yards against the Denver Broncos. It was quite the contrast Thursday as the Ravens defensive coordinator beamed about how his defense performed on Sunday against the Houston Texans, calling it one of the most gratifying wins of his career. It wasn't that the Ravens had beaten a talented Texans team that scored 43 points against them a season ago. And it wasn't that the Ravens had kept their opponents out of the end zone for a second straight week.

The Ravens will commemorate their Super Bowl XLVII victory one final time before Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns with a video tribute and the unveiling of world champion banners. Whether they pay homage to last year's team by getting back to the same offensive script from their stunning postseason run is not as clear. The offseason trade of wide receiver Anquan Boldin and injuries to tight end Dennis Pitta and wide receiver Jacoby Jones has resuscitated a familiar debate surrounding the team: should the Ravens, at least until quarterback Joe Flacco gains more chemistry with his new-look receiving corps, go back to a familiar offensive formula of Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice or Bernard Pierce repeatedly following Pro Bowl fullback Vonta Leach through holes?

Mike Adams probably is right. There has been all this hype about the Broncos and their pursuit of the No. 2 playoff seed, perhaps for no other reason than it's there. Recent Super Bowl history, though, suggests playoff seeding may be among the most overrated of NFL's accomplishments. The Green Bay Packers won the 2010 season's Super Bowl as the No. 6, and last, NFC playoff seed. The New York Giants won the Super Bowl last year with a No. 4 seed and a 9-7 record that many years isn't good enough to reach the postseason tournament.

Thank you to The Baltimore Sun for wonderful coverage of the Ravens' sad loss to the Broncos the other night ("City lays out a feast for sports, music fans," Sept. 6). Although the game was painful to watch, and it was difficult to pull myself out of bed the next day, I was impressed that the paper on my doorstep was full of insightful reporting on the game that ended just five hours earlier. I am grateful for your team of dedicated journalists that stayed up all night to bring us the news, agonizing as it was. Mike Preston was particularly motivating!

It was a quiet regular-season debut for Ravens rookie safety Matt Elam. The first-round draft pick substituted for struggling veteran free safety Michael Huff during the Ravens' 49-27 blowout loss to the Denver Broncos where they allowed seven touchdown passes to Peyton Manning. As Huff failed to contain Broncos tight end Julius Thomas with the former college basketball player scoring two touchdowns, Elam wound up playing 15 snaps in relief of Huff, most of them with the game already decided in the fourth quarter, and had one tackle and no pass deflections.
