Morning take: Ravens edition
By James Walker

Friday the AFC North blog has a special Baltimore Ravens edition of "Morning take."
Morning take: The Broncos are playing like the old Ravens this year, allowing just 11 points per game. But six games do not equal a legacy. Let’s see what Denver does over the long haul.
Morning take: Gaither said this week that he plans to play, so perhaps the Ravens are just being extra cautious. This will be something to monitor over the next couple of days.
- After practicing Wednesday, Ravens left tackle Jared Gaither (neck) was downgraded during Thursday’s session.
Morning take: Baltimore's secondary hasn’t stopped many receivers, particularly in man coverage. So expect a lot of double teams to come Marshall's way Sunday.
Morning take: This is a good matchup between two vets. But Bailey's athleticism should help him win a majority of these battles when Denver decides to use man coverage.
- On the other side of the football, Baltimore receiver Derrick Mason said he has respect for Denver cornerback Champ Bailey.
