The Baltimore Ravens are now 2-1 on the season after defeating the Denver Broncos 27-14 on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium.

After a blocked punt in the first quarter assisted Denver in scoring an early 7-0 lead, the Ravens clawed back, at one point scoring 20 unanswered points.

Quarterback Joe Flacco completed 25 of 40 pass attempts, throwing for a touchdown on 277 yards. Running back Javorius Allen was on the receiving end of Flacco's touchdown pass and also contributed a one yard rushing touchdown. Allens' counterpart, Alex Collins also added a six yard scoring run.

Baltimore's defense controlled Denver's offensive attack with three total sacks and an interception. That performance was sure to make one man in attendance proud. Ray Lewis was presented his Hall of Fame ring during a halftime on-field ceremony .

With their win, the Ravens now sit in second place in the AFC North Division behind the Cincinnati Bengals, who have the same record. However, due to last weeks win over the Ravens, Cincinnati remains atop the division.

Baltimore will play their next three games on the road. The first stop will be next Sunday in Pittsburgh where they will face the division rival Steelers.
