(BALTIMORE) — Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos surged into Baltimore and came out with the win.
Fueled by Chris Harris’ 98-yard interception return for a touchdown, the Broncos took care of the Baltimore Ravens 34-17 on Sunday afternoon.
Peyton Manning threw for 204 yards and a touchdown for the Broncos (11-3). Manning has now won nine straight games against the Ravens with the previous eight coming as a member of the Indianapolis Colts.
Eric Decker caught eight passes for 133 yards including a 51-yard touchdown pass.
Knowshon Moreno paved the way on the ground for the Broncos with 22 carries for 118 yards and a touchdown. On the flip-side, the defense held Ravens star Ray Rice to just 38 yards on 12 carries.
Joe Flacco struggled, throwing for 254 yards and two touchdowns but by the time he got into a rhythm, the game was already out of reach. He tossed two late scores to tight end Dennis Pitta.
The Ravens (9-5) are losers of three straight.
