We knew that when the Ravens and Orioles couldn't reach an agreement to keep the home opener in Baltimore, the likely scenario was that the Ravens open on the road against the Broncos. Some have said the Ravens are being sent to the lion's den, having to play the revenge-minded Broncos after an angry offseason. Plus, there is the whole Peyton factor.

They have never lost a season opener and they are undefeated the week after the bye week. And, oh yeah, there was that whole Super Bowl thing.
