The Baltimore Ravens handed Denver its first loss by using the same blueprint the Broncos employed to win their first six games.
Rookie Lardarius Webb returned the second-half kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown, and the Ravens ended a three-game losing streak with a surprisingly easy 30-7 victory Sunday.
It was Denver's first loss under rookie head coach Josh McDaniels. The Broncos (6-1) came in with the NFL's top-ranked defense, a plus-seven turnover differential and one of the league's best kick returners in Eddie Royal. Denver had also outscored the opposition 76-10 after halftime.
The Ravens, however, dominated all those facets of the game. Baltimore (4-3) limited Denver to 200 yards, scored off the game's lone turnover, won the special teams fight and pulled away after leading by only 6-0 at halftime.
