Appearing on the John Murphy Show this week, Corey Graham was asked by the Bills play-by-play man about the 2012 Divisional playoff victory by the Baltimore Ravens over the home standing Denver Broncos in overtime that propelled the Ravens to the Super Bowl where they won their second NFL title.
Murphy thought it might be Graham’s most memorable victory. Graham said it’s not even the most memorable game against the Broncos. He’s still smarting from the 2013 season opener against the Broncos, when as the defending Super Bowl champs they were embarrassed by Denver.
“The last time I played against Denver sticks in my mind way more than our Division playoff win. The last time I played the Broncos when I was with the Ravens it was opening night after we won the Super Bowl and (Peyton Manning) lit us up. He threw for like seven touchdowns. So that game hurts and it’s more memorable to me than anything.
“Coming off the Super Bowl year the way he humiliated us out there, I still feel a certain way and I can’t wait for the opportunity to go against him again.”
In the Divisional win over Denver, Graham had an interception return for a touchdown and had another INT in overtime to set up the game-winning score. It all means nothing to Graham.
“That game he did that to us last year, I can’t forget it,” said Graham. “It’s been on my mind all last year and all of this year. I just couldn’t wait for another opportunity to play against him. I remember that game more than the playoff game that we won.”
Graham says at age 38 Manning can still make all the throws like he always has, but it’s clear that Manning’s dismantling of the Ravens defense in 2013 is something he took personally and feels he has to make things right on Sunday.
