BALTIMORE (WJZ)— Many fans are heading out to Denver for the AFC Divisional playoff game.
Ron Matz has more on the road trip.
Devoted Ravens fans are in the air right now, heading to Denver to root on the purple and black.
Ravens fans are ready to make some noise at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium.
“Going with a group to Denver, Colorado to see the Ravens beat the Broncos,” said Johnny Davis, of Columbia.
About 100 of the faithful proudly wore the purple and black as they left BWI on Friday morning.
“We’re having a big tailgate tomorrow, in which we’ll meet up with the Denver version of Ravens fans out there. We’ll have about a hundred Ravens fans tailgating tomorrow to cheer our boys on in purple to victory,” said Brian Snyder, Bmore Around Town.
Some 76,000 fans will pack into Mile High. Most will back the Broncos.
But one mile above sea level, Ravens maniacs are ready for prime time, ready for the duel in Denver.
“I’ve never been to a road playoff game, and there’s no better place than Denver. It’s a hard place to win but I think all these fans out there will really bring the Ravens to victory,” said a Ravens fan.
And at William Winchester Elementary School in Carroll County, it was a purple Friday to remember.
In other Ravens news, the Pro Football Hall Of Fame announced their 15 finalists. It includes former Ravens defensive tackle Jonathan Ogden and former Ravens owner Art Modell.
Between four and seven new members will be selected February 2.
