A last wave of pre-game notes:
- It’s official — the blue-on-blue, monochromatic look is in play for the Broncos tonight.
- Terrell Suggs and Todd Heap were both questionable for the game, but are each in the lineup as the Ravens announced no changes in the starting lineup.
- Courtney Brown, listed as doubtful, is among the eight Broncos inactives, joining wide receiver Todd Devoe, safety Hamza Abdullah, running back Cedric Cobbs, linebacker Nate Webster, offensive linemen Chris Kuper and Adam Meadows and tight end Nate Jackson.
- The weather here — a chilly, steady rain that is more appropriate for St. James Park in January than INVESCO Field in November — is miserable and it’s the nicest thing I can say about it. It will likely be far more comfortable for spectators, sideline personnel, players and coaches when the cold rain changes over to snow, since the flakes can at least be brushed off of one’s shoulder.
- The game-time temperature is 39 degrees, with a wind chill of 34.
