On the first drive of the second half, Baltimore took advantage of great field position thanks to a 50-yard kickoff return by wide receiver Jacoby Jones that set the Ravens up on their own 44-yard line.
Baltimore moved into field goal range with a 15-yard completion from quarterback Joe Flacco to wide receiver Tandon Doss, a 7-yard run by running back Ray Rice and a 5-yard catch by Rice.
The drive then stalled at the Denver 27-yard line. Three straight incompletions, including a third-down incompletion that Baltimore challenged, set up a 45-yard field goal by Baltimore kicker Justin Tucker.
The Ravens’ scoring drive covered 29 yards in eight plays and took 2:42 in time of possession. The field goal cut the Broncos’ lead to 17-3.
