Confidence and expectations of a win is not arrogance. Saying you are scared of a team you have faced and handled in their stadium is just embarrassing.
"Energy" affecting any NFL team is non-sense and message board gibberish. Players don't listen to sports talk, they get paid to come on and talk on sports talk. They live in a cocoon and aren't on the OM posting messages like regular Joe's.
I expect the Broncos to beat the Ravens, and if they lose its not because of anything a mediocre Ravens team did, but something the Broncos did or had happen.
