10. No matter what anyone says, Denver has to be overconfident after destroying the Ravens in December at Baltimore.

9. Manning has a sub .500 record lifetime in the playoffs. (Won 9 Lost 10) That’s a lotta losses!

8. This will be only the 2nd time all season that the Raven’s big 4 on defense play together. (Lewis, Reed, Suggs, and Ngata) (Last week was the 1st time.)

7. The Ray Lewis inspiration factor!

6. Flacco outperformed the great Tom Brady last year in the playoffs, AT New England.

5. Ray Rice should bounce back from last week’s forgetful playoff performance.

4. Denver’s luck will hopefully run out with Knowshon Moreno at running back! (He also has no playoff experience!)

3. Flacco is 6-4 all time in the playoffs, but could easily be 8-2 with a ring or 2 if Evans and Boldin could catch perfectly thrown TD passes at the end of a playoff game when it matters most!

2. Denver leads the Ravens in just about every meaningful stat EXCEPT for the all important giveaway/takeaway stat, where they Ravens were +9 this season and the Broncos were -1.

1. Manning is 0-3 in playoff games in which the temperature at kickoff is less than 40 degrees!!!
