Good morning from Denver
By Jamison Hensley
DENVER -- This is the first time the Ravens have played a postseason game at Mile High, but Baltimore is used to this scenario.
The Ravens are playing the AFC's top-seeded team for the sixth time in their playoff history when they face the Broncos today. They are 2-3 against the No. 1 seed in the playoffs, with both wins coming against the Titans.
If the Ravens win, they would advance to their third AFC title game in John Harbaugh's five seasons as head coach. If Baltimore and New England both win this weekend, it will mark the first conference championship game rematch (from the year before) since the Cowboys and 49ers met three straight seasons in the NFC title game (1992-94). It hasn’t happened in the AFC since the Broncos and Browns played in the championship game in 1986 and 1987.
As far as the weather goes, the temperature at kickoff will be 19 degrees with a 10 percent chance of snow.
