Baltimore Ravens @ Denver Broncos
NOTE: Green Bay vs San Francisco is our featured sim of the week, which can be viewed here.
The first game of the 2013 NFL season involves the Super Bowl-Champion Baltimore Ravens heading to the Mile High City to take on the Denver Broncos.
Former Bronco Elvis Dumervil returns to Denver for the first time, and has himself a big game. With three sacks and six total tackles, Dumervil did his best to disrupt Peyton Manning and the Denver offense.
Unfortunately for the Ravens, it was the Broncos who pulled off the late-gate heroics to force overtime after scoring 13 unanswered points in the final eight minutes of the game.
A Joe Flacco interception that was returned deep into Baltimore territory by Champ Bailey sealed the victory for Denver as Matt Prater’s 36-yard field goal gave the Broncos the 26-23 win.
