Representing the team at midfield for the coin toss were the captains: quarterback Peyton Manning, defensive end Elvis Dumervil, cornerback Champ Bailey, linebacker Wesley Woodyard, guard Chris Kuper and the game captain, linebacker Keith Brooking.
Denver won the toss and deferred to the second half, so it started the game on defense and will start the second half on offense.
Matt Prater sent the opening kickoff through the end zone, and Baltimore opened up the game from its own 20-yard line.
The Broncos came out on defense with four down linemen – defensive end Derek Wolfe, tackles Kevin Vickerson and Justin Bannan and Dumervil at the other end.
The starting linebackers were Von Miller, Brooking and Woodyard.
In the secondary, Rahim Moore and Mike Adams were the safeties with Bailey and Chris Harris at the corners.
After the Ravens touchdown, the Denver offense came out on the field.
On the offensive line, the Broncos came out with Dan Koppen at center, Chris Kuper and Zane Beadles as the guards and Orlando Franklin and Ryan Clady as the tackles.
Wide receiver Brandon Stokley was in the slot and tight end Joel Dreessen was on the line of scrimmage. Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas were out wide.
Manning was the quarterback with Knowshon Moreno next to him at running back.
