BALTIMORE (AP) - Ray Rice ran for 133 yards and two touchdowns, and the Baltimore Ravens frustrated Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton in a 31-17 victory Sunday.
Baltimore (4-1) jumped to a 17-0 lead and coasted to its third straight win, the first this season by double digits. The Ravens moved past idle Pittsburgh into sole possession of first place in
the AFC North.
The Broncos (2-3) fell to 0-5 against the Ravens in Baltimore. In those games, Denver has been outscored 142-56, including 60-24 over the last two years.
Orton completed his fourth straight 300-yard passing game with a 44-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Lloyd with 35 seconds left. But it was of little consolation to the Broncos, who hurt themselves by losing a fumble and committing 10 penalties for 90 yards.
