BALTIMORE -- Ravens fans have been clamoring for rookie defensive back Lardarius Webb to get more playing time. Ravens fans are getting their wish.

Webb returned the opening kick of the second half 95 yards for a touchdown to give the Ravens a 13-0 lead over the undefeated Denver Broncos. Webb made one cut and went virtually untouched for the score. He's also playing in the secondary Sunday during passing downs.

The special teams play is huge in what’s been a defensive battle so far. It was the first kick return for a touchdown for Baltimore since December of 2007.

(Update: The Broncos respond with a Knowshon Moreno touchdown run, and the Ravens answer with a field goal to make it 16-7.)
