BALTIMORE -- Ravens safety Ed Reed was upset after nearly making one big play in the first quarter.
So Reed made up for it by making another big play with his next opportunity.
Reed's big hit on Broncos tailback Knowshon Moreno caused a fumble that led to a Baltimore first field goal. The Ravens take a 3-0 lead. Reed barely missed a blocked punt earlier in the game and was clearly upset on the sideline.
It had been a battle of field position until Reed's big play helped the Ravens get on the board first.
