With time winding down in the first half, the Ravens mounted a two-minute drive that started with a 43-yard completion from quarterback Joe Flacco to wide receiver Jacoby Jones.
The Flacco-to-Jones completion seemed to energize the Baltimore crowd and offense, as the team quickly penetrated the Denver red zone with an 11-yard run by running back Ray Rice and a 14-yard completion from Flacco to wide receiver Torrey Smith.
But with the ball on the Denver 4-yard line, Chris Harris stepped in front of a pass on the sideline and raced down the sideline for a 98-yard interception return for a touchdown. It marks the third interception of the season for Harris, who has returned two of his picks for scores.
The pick-six represented the longest interception return for a touchdown in Broncos history and Harris became the first player since Champ Bailey in 2005 to return two interceptions for touchdowns in the same season.
The touchdown capped a dominant half for the Broncos. At halftime, in addition to a 10-0 lead on the scoreboard, Denver has an 11-to-4 advantage in first downs, as the defense has forced Baltimore to go 0-for-6 on third conversions.
Of Baltimore’s seven drives before its final kneel-down of the half, five resulted in punts, with the other two ending in turnovers.
The Broncos outgained the Ravens 173-119 in total yards, including a 93-41 edge in rushing yards. Denver also held the ball for 18:59 while limiting Baltimore to just 11:01 in time of possession and ran 40 plays to just 29 for the Ravens. The defense also held Flacco to 78 yards through the air on 7-for-15 passing.
