The Ravens have a Super Bowl pedigree.
Coach John Harbaugh also brings a special teams background and the Ravens have always excelled in all aspects of special teams.
For both teams, there’s no statistical significance for Kick Returner, neither Phillip Lindsay or Chris Moore have had any opportunities from the position. Denver has Adam Jones, proven punt returner while Baltimore (we think) counter with Tim White after releasing Janarion Grant earlier in the week. There has been some volatility in Baltimore’s return ranks. Both teams have solid kickers in Brandon McManus for Denver and Justin Turner in Baltimore. Punter leans Denver with Marquette King.
From the coaching ranks, it’s hard to compete with Harbaugh’s success and longevity. Denver’s Vance Joseph has certainly made improvements over his rookie campaign but question marks remain for the Broncos head man.
Denver enjoys a slight advantage on special teams but Baltimore has a decided advantage in the coaching ranks.
