1st HALF NOTES:
Operating behind 3rd string QB Danny Kanell, the Denver Broncos jumped out to a slim 3-0 lead over the Baltimore Ravens as Jason Elam connects on a 28-yard field goal. The kick capped off a 9–play, 55–yard drive, set up by a solid running performance by Clinton Portis.
Baltimore thought they struck back early in the second quarter as Kyle Boller connected with tight end Todd Heap on a 13-yard touchdown strike, but a coaches challenge by Mike Shanahan erased the play as the ruling on the field decided that Heap did not have clear possession as he was tackled.
A half a dozen plays later the Broncos defense remained strong, holding the Ravens on first and goal from the 3-yard line and Baltimore had to settle for a 25-yard filed goal by Matt Stover, tying the score at 3-3.
A blocked Micah Knorr punt set up the Ravens second field goal of the afternoon, this one from 39-yards out giving Baltimore its first lead of the game 6-3.
Then things got scary.
Linebacker John Mobley left the field on a stretcher after colliding with Ravens running back Jamahl Lewis. Mobley was motionless on the field for nearly 10 minutes before being taken to a local hospital for precautionary tests.
Preliminary reports indicate a neck injury, but fortunately he does have feeling in his extremities and was able to wave to the crowd as he left the field.
Baltimore capped off the first half with Stover's third field goal of the game, 22-yards out and the Ravens are holding a 9-3 lead over the Broncos at the half.
Be sure and check back after the game for a complete breakdown and further information on John Mobley.
