The Baltimore Ravens started their season in nightmarish fashion losing to the Denver Broncos by the score of 49-27, led by seven TD passes from future Hall of Famer and arguably the game’s best ever regular season quarterback, Peyton Manning.
It happens sometimes. It has happened in the past.
Back in 1969 during week 2 of the season, the Baltimore Colts fresh off a bitter defeat at the hands of the New York Jets in Super Bowl III, were thrashed by the Minnesota Vikings by the score of 52-14. Quarterback Joe Kapp led the way with…you guessed it, 7 scoring throws.
Coincidentally, the Colts, like the Ravens did to the Broncos, beat the Vikings the prior season 24-14 in a Western Conference Championship Game.
History does have a way of repeating itself.
