The Baltimore Ravens traveled to Mile High to take on the Denver Broncos and came out on top with another win to improve their record to 3-1.
It was a grind it out type of game for the Ravens as their offense was sloppy at times, but the defense played well. The Broncos opened the scoring with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater throwing for a touchdown to tight end Noah Fant. Baltimore then answered and tied the game with a rushing touchdown from Latavius Murray for a 11-yard score. The Ravens struggled to run the ball against the tough Denver defense, but Murray found a small hole and got the touchdown.
The Ravens would extend their lead when quarterback Lamar Jackson unleashed a beautiful throw down field to an open Marquise Brown to give Baltimore the lead 14 to seven. It was a 49-yard pass from Jackson to Brown that was placed extremely well by Jackson. It was also a good sign to see Brown haul the catch in after dropping multiple touchdown passes last week in the Ravens win over the Lions.
The Ravens would extend the lead with a 40-yard field goal by Justin Tucker to give the Ravens a 17 to seven lead before halftime.
Coming out of halftime both teams’ offenses stalled before the Ravens broke through and scored another field goal to extend their lead to 20 to seven.
The Broncos would lose starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to injury in the third quarter and Drew Lock replaced him. Lock, however, was not able to get the offense rolling against the Ravens defense either.
It was a long day for the Broncos offensively without some of their receiving weapons. Before the game ended, the Ravens would add another field goal to improve the score 23 to seven. It would be the last scoring play for either team and put the finishing touches on for the Ravens.
It wasn’t a pretty game by any means, but Lamar Jackson and company were able to travel to Denver and get the win. Jackson finished the game going 22 of 37 for 316 yards and a touchdown.
Latavius Murray seems to have become the lead back for Baltimore as he finished with 18 rushes for 59 yards, and a score. Marquise Brown finished the game with four catches for 91 yards and one touchdown. It was a team effort in Denver, and it resulted with a strong win on the road.
The Ravens will look to improve their record to 4-1 next week when they take on the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football.
