Wide-eyed and mindful, Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell checked off all the traits that make Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller one of the league's most feared pass rushers, an NFL Defensive Player of the Year candidate, and the biggest threat to blow up his game plan Saturday. “Speed. Power. Quickness. Finesse. He's got it all,” Caldwell said. “He is just an unbelievable performer.” Miller ranked third in the NFL during the regular season with 18.5 sacks as the Broncos tied for the league lead with 52. Miller led the Broncos with a team-high 86 pressures, according to Pro Football Focus, and tied Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake for the most in the NFL. Miller did not sack Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco in Denver's 34-17 win in Week 15, but he led the charge as the Broncos harassed Flacco all afternoon.

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.

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.

DENVER -- There isn't a whole lot left to say about tonight's Ravens-Denver Broncos NFL season opener. For the past couple of weeks, we've talked about everything from the matchups to the motivations. We've even talked about stadium banners, the surest sign that there is a lot of attention on tonight's rematch of the AFC divisional playoff thriller in January, won in double overtime by the Ravens. As we get closer to kickoff, here are my final thoughts about the game: For all the talk about the thin mountain air, the temperature may turn out to be a significant factor as well.

In this game-day staple, blogger Matt Vensel makes four sometimes-courageous predictions for the game. All he asks is that you don't hold it against him whenever those predictions end up being embarrassingly wrong. The Ravens, at least the confident/crazy ones, said Sunday that they were pulling for a rematch with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, the top-seeded AFC team that clobbered the Ravens during their current 11-game winning streak. We will soon find out which category -- confident or crazy -- those players fall into.

In anticipation of the 2013 NFL season, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will take a daily look at one of the 13 opponents on the Ravens' regular-season schedule. Today is the Denver Broncos . On Sept. 5, the wait will be over. The Ravens will open the 2013 NFL season against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, the team they beat in last year's double-overtime divisional round thriller. As you may have heard, this game will be played in Denver, where loud, lubed-up Broncos fans will fill up Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

It would be totally forgivable if Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell cracked a smile when he pulled out his laser pointer in the offensive meeting room this week and aimed it at the Denver Broncos' defensive front. After all, defensive end Elvis Dumervil is now just down the hall from him after signing with the Ravens as a free agent this offseason and outside linebacker Von Miller is suspended for Thursday night's season opener. But Caldwell kept a straight face -- yes, the mild-mannered coordinator does smile sometimes, believe it or not -- when asked about a Denver pass rush that will be without the Broncos' top two sack-getters from 2012.

Even if Bryant McKinnie does not prove to be an upgrade over Michael Oher, his return to the Ravens and the left tackle position should at least strengthen the Ravens at left guard and right tackle, where Oher will likely play. Make no mistake, though, Oher will still be in the crosshairs of formidable NFL pass rushers over at right tackle. In a story I wrote in December about Oher's future with the Ravens, I mentioned the theory that in today's NFL, the left tackle position, while still the most important position on the offensive line, might not be as valuable as it was a decade or so ago when Jonathan Ogden was steering pass rushers clear of Ravens quarterbacks.

Hours before being named to his second Pro Bowl in as many years, Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins took a moment to reflect on his first trip to the star-studded event in Hawaii. After completing a sophomore season that included tying Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Tommy Kelly for the most sacks by an interior lineman and returning one fumble for a touchdown, Atkins was looking forward to basking in the sun and the spotlight that accompanies being named one of the top players in the NFL. But long before he was to go, his coach gave him an assignment.

With the calm of an insurance claims adjuster describing a seven-car pileup, Joe Flacco stood at his locker and detailed his offense's wreck of a performance the last time the Ravens played the Denver Broncos. There were missed connections with his wide receivers early. There were squandered opportunities on third down. And then, after the offense finally started to gain forward momentum late in the first half, there was the pick-six that sent the game spinning out of their control.
