The Denver Broncos beat the Baltimore Ravens 34-17 on Sunday afternoon at M&T Bank Stadium, winning their ninth consecutive game.
The win improves Denver to 11-3 as the Ravens fall to 9-5.
The Broncos jumped out to a 17-0 lead at halftime. Fullback Jacob Hester scored the game’s first touchdown on a 1-yard run. It was his first game action as a Bronco, after being listed as a gameday inactive since he was signed in late November.
The next score came from cornerback Chris Harris. The Ravens were driving at the end of the first half, looking to make it a one-possession game before the break. Instead, Harris jumped in front of Ravens QB Joe Flacco’s pass and intercepted it at the 2-yard line. He then took it all the way to the end zone for a 98-yard interception touchdown return, putting the Broncos up 17-0.
Wide receiver Eric Decker kept the momentum on Denver’s side in the second half with a 51-yard catch and run for a touchdown. Decker finished with game-highs in receptions and yards with 8 for 133.
Running back Knowshon Moreno had the fourth Denver score, a 6-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Moreno finished with 22 carries for 118 yards and a touchdown, both game-highs as well.
The Denver defense held Ravens RB Ray Rice to just 38 yards on 12 carries.
The Broncos will host the Cleveland Browns in Week 16 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
