Ravens in control

Posted by ESPN.com’s James Walker

BALTIMORE -- It looks like the Denver Broncos are wearing down as the Ravens finally got the best of the Denver's defense.

Quarterback Joe Flacco connected on a 20-yard touchdown pass to Derrick Mason to give Baltimore a 23-7 lead over undefeated Denver. It was the first offensive touchdown of the game for the Ravens.

The Broncos have been a dominant second-half team all season, but the Ravens have played with the energy needed to take control of the game. Baltimore (3-3) needs this game to break a three-game losing streak.
