Default Broncos have the advantage saturday by a mile.



Quote:
Peyton Manning excelled at home this season, posting a league-best +19 TD-Int differential. Joe Flacco, meanwhile, struggled on the road in 2012, completing just 29.6% of his passes of at least 15 air yards on the road, the fourth-lowest percentage in the league.

A closer look at both quarterbacks:

Why Manning dominates at home

Manning has been more efficient at home this season. Success rate measures the percentage of plays on which a quarterback receives positive credit based on improving his team's chances of scoring. Manning boasts a 56.2% success rate at home this season, the highest of any quarterback in the league.

Denver rushers averaged 4.1 yards per carry at Mile High this season but averaged only 3.4 on the road. In addition, Manning has been much more effective with play action at home, posting a league-high 96.8 QBR with seven touchdowns and only one interception.

Manning also had a +8 TD-Int differential at home on throws deeper than 10 yards downfield, tied with Russell Wilson for best in the league. On the road, however, Manning had a minus-1 differential, tied for 20th best.

Why Flacco struggles on the road

Flacco overthrew his intended receiver on 46.3% of his attempts at least 15 yards downfield on the road, the worst percentage in the league. At home, Flacco overthrew his receiver on 26.7% of his attempts.

Flacco had a 38.6 success rate on the road in the regular season, worse than Mark Sanchez (39.1), Nick Foles (40.0) and Matt Cassel (42.8). At home, Flacco had a 47.5 success rate, better than Matt Ryan (47.0), Andrew Luck (46.8) and Drew Brees (46.2).

Despite the fact that Flacco has played like crap on the road all year, somehow things will be different today against a team that destroyed the Ravens at home.

And when Ray Rice/Pierce run for 800 yards on Saturday, Flacco won't even have to unbuckle his holster.

Interesting fact: In Joe Flacco's 4 playoff wins, his defense only gave up only 43 points (10.75 per game) and Ray Rice had big games most of the time.

He's a classic game manager.

WE stop Rice and we win the game. Period. I'm worried about the screens, but we've played screens soooo much better this year than any in recent past. Vickerson has been killer at recognizing the screens.

Honestly, I hope we get up by 2 scores quickly and then it's all on Flacco and he will have no chance.

And classic game managers don't usually win Superbowls unless they have the 2000, not the 2012 Raven's defense.

Everything is pointing the Bronx way, but it's the playoffs and anything can happen.

Can't wait until we roll into the AFC championship game on the back of Peyton Manning savaging the Ravens defense and Von Miller molesting Joe Flacco.

The Ravens Defense looked pretty good against the Colts. Only giving up 3 field goals. Manning knows the Broncos are going to have to score TD's.

The last time the two teams met, the score would have been 10-7 going into half without Flacco's hurry-up blunder. If it's low scoring, any team could win...

...and depending on Prater to win us a close game is a hair-raising proposition.

Ravens are 7-5 on the road in post season.....they are 2-3 on the road in the divisional and 1-2 in AFCCG ...seems like most of their post season road wins are wildcard games against weaker opponents.

statistically, he is the best kicker in the history of the NFL in 4th quarter or OT kicks in 1 score games.

The team needs to script a good 15 plays from out the gate. If we have success early it will be a long game for Baltimore.

The thing that worries me most about this game is that I'm having trouble coming up with a good reason to be worried.
