By the numbers: Ravens-Broncos
By Jamison Hensley
Here are some numbers, many of which come courtesy of ESPN Stats & Information, to remember for Thursday night's game between the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos:
10 -- Times the Ravens pressured Peyton Manning on 24 second-half dropbacks (41.7 percent) in the AFC divisional game.
12 -- Wins by the defending Super Bowl champions in the past 13 season openers. The only loss came from the 2012 New York Giants.
13 -- Victories by the Ravens in prime-time in 19 games under coach John Harbaugh. That's a .684 winning percentage.
30 -- Carries by Ray Rice in the last meeting with the Broncos. It was his most in the 2012 season.
37 -- Percent of the Ravens' receptions lost with wide receiver Anquan Boldin traded and tight end Dennis Pitta on the injured reserve-designated for return list. They combined for 126 of the Ravens' 334 catches in 2012.
80 -- Consecutive regular-season starts by quarterback Joe Flacco, tied with Jarret Johnson for the longest streak in Ravens history. He will break that mark Thursday night.
148 -- Combined career sacks by Terrell Suggs (84.5) and Elvis Dumervil (63.5).
2,839 -- Days since the last game the Ravens didn't have either Ray Lewis or Ed Reed in the starting lineup. It last happened on Nov. 27, 2005.
