Larry French

From NFL Communications, here's a ton of stats and info on the Baltimore Ravens vs. Denver Broncos game this Sunday afternoon:

DENVER BRONCOS (10-3) at BALTIMORE RAVENS (9-4) (Sunday, CBS, 1:00 PM ET)

Two of the top teams in the AFC will meet on Sunday afternoon in Baltimore. The Broncos have already clinched the AFC West and the Ravens can secure the AFC North with a win. Both teams are vying for a first-round bye in the postseason.

"We need to concentrate on what we need to do to get better," says Denver cornerback CHAMP BAILEY. "We just need to keep plugging along and the rest will take care of itself."

Denver has won eight consecutive games, the longest current streak in the NFL. Baltimore has a 5-1 record at home, tied for the second-best mark in the AFC this season.

"I’m focused on the Baltimore Ravens and I’m not going to sit back and watch our playoff fate be based on other teams," says Ravens running back RAY RICE. "We pride ourselves on beating people and going into the playoffs strong. We’ve got to get ourselves back."
