NFL Playoffs: Baltimore Ravens vs. Denver Broncos, Divisional Round (Open Thread)

USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Divisional round of the playoffs kicks off today with my favorite remaining team (because of Peyton Manning), the Denver Broncos, taking on the team I despise the most, the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens were taken to school by the Broncos toward the end of the regular season, and I don't see a reason why that should change this week.

Ray Lewis already had his swan song at home last week. The issue is that whatever worked against a rookie quarterback in Andrew Luck last week won't work against Manning this week. The Broncos are the far superior team on offense and defense; I'll say it is a push on special teams. Special teams won't be enough for Baltimore to pull it off, and Denver will coast into the AFC Conference Championship. Broncos 34, Ravens 17
