Denver Broncos: 3 Biggest Reasons Denver Lost in Week 3 vs. Ravens

The Denver Broncos suffered their first loss of the season in Week 3, losing 27-14 against the Baltimore Ravens. The Broncos dropped to 2-1 on the season, putting them at second place in the AFC West.

From the beginning of the game, it looked as if we would get a back and forth game. That proved to be naught, as the Broncos scored 14 points in the first quarter, while going scoreless the rest of the game.

You can’t expect to win many games doing that. This game was disappointing, to say the least, leaving much to be desired on both sides of the ball. The defense allowed 27 points to a Ravens offense that isn’t known to rack up points.

This Broncos defense is too talented to have a day like this, even though they have suffered a couple of injuries in the secondary. Tramaine Brock was injured early in this game, while Adam Jones was already ruled out before kickoff.

That left them short-handed, but there’s still no excuse to giving up 342 total yards to this Ravens offense. The Broncos will need to get themselves together very quickly in Week 4, as they face a scorching-hot Kansas City Chiefs team that sits at 3-0.

I know it’s early, but division games at any point of the year could make or break your chances come playoff time.

In Week 3, there were a few glaring reasons why the Broncos fell short against the Ravens on the road. Here are those reasons.
