Ray Rice and the Ravens ended a three-game losing streak with a 30-7 win over Denver.

After three straight close losses, the Baltimore Ravens took no chances against the previously undefeated Denver Broncos. The Ravens controlled the action throughout the game on their way to a 30-7 victory.

Neither team moved the ball consistently in the first half, but the Ravens took advantage of a fumble to score the first points of the game on a 43-yard field goal by Steven Hauschka.

A second field goal by Hauschka in the second quarter following the best drive of the half (10 plays, 46 yards) gave the Ravens a 6-0 halftime edge.

Baltimore increased their advantage on the opening play of the second half as Lardarius Webb rambled 95-yards with the opening kickoff to make the score 13-0.

After gaining only 64 yards in the entire first half, the Broncos marched down the field following the Baltimore touchdown. A one-yard run by Knowshon Moreno capped a 10-play, 86-yard scoring drive.

Ironically, the Broncos would gain only 84 yards on offense the rest of the way.

A 31-yard field goal by Hauschka following a 10-play, 69-yard drive made the score 16-7 heading into the fourth quarter.

On their next possession, Baltimore drove 73 yards on nine plays and scored their first offensive touchdown of the day on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Derrick Mason.

The Ravens completed the scoring with a nine-play, 53-yard drive that culminated in a seven-yard touchdown run by Ray Rice.

The Ravens out-gained the Broncos 292 yards to 200. Flacco completed 20 of 25 passes for 175 yards and a touchdown. Rice rushed for 84 yards.

Kyle Orton didn’t throw an interception for the Broncos, but passed for only 152 yards while completing 23 of 37 passes.

Now 4-3 on the season, the Ravens will look to avenge an earlier loss to the Cincinnati Bengals when they travel to Cincinnati next Sunday.
