Paul Kruger, OLB for the Baltimore Ravens is no doubt celebrating his team’s upset win over the Denver Broncos. Just a while ago, Kruger sent out this tweet:
Denver shoulda stuck with Tebow

In a game where many predicted it to not even be close, Joe Flacco hit Jacoby Jones with a 70 yard TD with under a minute to play. John Fox decided to play it conservative despite having all of his timeouts and time left to drive down the field. The end result was a Ravens win.
Despite the final score’s indication, the Raven’s D was stout throughout the day, only allowing 21 points, and forcing multiple turnovers. Kruger finished with 3 tackles, but he was able to generate plenty of pressure on Manning. Last season, the Denver Broncos made the post season with an 8-8 record, and Tebow led the team to an overtime win against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Mile High. Peyton Manning on the other hand started his playoff career with the Denver Broncos sour, throwing two picks, one of which cost the Broncos the game, and also losing a fumble.
For the second straight year, the Ravens move on to the AFC Championship game to play either Houston or New England.
