The Broncos have a homefield advantage of being acclimated to the higher altitude.

Denver has been beaten "IN" Denver before in the playoffs, so no big deal...

I see a healthy dose of the 2 headed monster, known as Rice and Pierce. Maybe even a bit of Allen if need be. They key will be getting the defense off the field. Colts had way too many plays last week. 83 or 87 something like that. That's a long day for the defense. Bright spot was they stopped the Colts and held them to 3 FGs, and one missed. Luckily, it will be cold and Peyton has a horrible track record of playing in the cold. Let's hope it goes the same way this week.

Higher altitude = lower oxygen?

Paul Kruger sack = Manning no oxygen

Just wanted to point out a possible error, Baltimore is not 480 ft above sea level, maybe its most northwestern parts. I believe you meant the training facility is 480 above sea level. The stadium is next to the inner harbour(sea level), maybe 10-20ft above sea level.

It takes 72 hours for an average person to fully acclimatize to a different altitude. However, 90% of the effects dissipate within the first 24 hours. This is why you don't see any noticeable benefits for Denver while playing at a lower altitude.

Having lived out in the Denver area in my 20's I found the altitude was not a problem for a younger person. I say that because I went back out there for a visit years later and hyper-ventilated every time I exerted myself. So youth is key to dealing with it and most of the players are young enough that it shouldn't be a big deal. Now the coaches, they may feel it more than the players. I think it has something to do with the lung tissue elasticity decreasing with age. GO RAVENS!!!!!

I ride 12 miles, five days a week on my indoor bike. Along with weight training. I have never noticed any differance at all every time I go out there.

The people that complaine are the ones that are over weight and out of shape.

I've seen former players talk about this on tv and whatnot they all pretty much said as long as your conditioned and don't buy into it you'll be fine because they said it was more mental then anything

It absolutely is a problem. I don't know why they're not going out there today ( Tuesday) so their bodies can adjust to the thin air. If you're not acclimated, you're toast. Plus, you get headaches.

Right now, the Ravens are pumped up enough, that they'll play Denver on Mount Everest if that is what it takes! Go Ravens, ignore the high altitude silliness and dominate!

They going to run the no-huddle as much as possible, thinking they can wind our defense. Be prepared and hit Manning as much as possible.

Sure, it will probably be a problem, but you learn how to adjust to it. Problems and obstacles are only issues if you allow them to be. If the Ravens lose on Saturday, it won't be because of the altitude. If they win, it won't be because of the altitude either.

If Peyton can adapt to Denver's weather, then the Ravens can too.
