However, he is not as good as a healthy Suggs so DEN will get some pressure, but Peyton is damn good at getting the ball out on time so i have very few worries there.
Suggs is still feeling the effects of his injury, this is not defensive player of the year Terrell Suggs we are facing, it is just good defender Terrell Suggs and there is a hell of a difference between those two guys. Kruger is good, but he has been held without a sack in 8 games this year, Dumervil has been shut out 7 times this year. The difference being of course that the Ravens gave up nearly twice as many sacks this year as the Broncos, so expect Kruger to struggle more than Dumervil.
The Baltimore secondary is vulnerable and even though Ray Lewis is a heck of a leader, he is not much worth in pass coverage so expect to see a lot of Tamme and Dreesen down the middle to keep the linebackers at bay.
