DENVER - No matter where his season or his career might end, Joe Flacco will always have The Fling. And Peyton Manning will always have to live with that throw he made, too. Flacco's desperation, 70-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones with 31 seconds left in regulation saved the game for Baltimore in regulation, and Manning's throw across his body in overtime all but lost it for Denver. On a frostbitten day in Denver (the temperature was 13 degrees at kickoff), the Ravens got a 47-yard field goal from Justin Tucker 1 minute, 42 seconds into the second overtime Saturday to pull off a 38-35 upset over Manning and the Broncos, extending linebacker Ray Lewis' career by at least one game.

DENVER - The Denver Broncos got their Man. Make that Peyton Manning. Pending final contract negotiations, Manning will join John Elway's Broncos with hopes of winning another Super Bowl. So much for Tebowmania. Still to be decided is what happens to last season's quarterback sensation, Tim Tebow. The Broncos and Manning agent Tom Condon spent yesterday working out parameters of a deal expected to be worth about $95 million over 5 years after the NFL's only four-time MVP called Elway, the Broncos' revered QB-turned-executive, and told him he had decided to come to Denver.

With the unmitigated disaster of Four Rooms and the critical shelling that greeted From Dusk to Dawn, the hitherto white-hot Quentin Tarantino has been taking his lumps. Tarantino should thank the makers of Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead, for it is a black crime comedy that makes us keenly feel his absence. The movie and pop-culture influences in Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction always make for lively arguments. Perhaps one day his influence on other young directors will be the subject of film-school graduate studies; Things to Do in Denver should furnish ample material.

The Montgomery County commissioners have released details of their Coopers & Lybrand study comparing the economic and demographic features of the four regions, including Philadelphia, where Lockheed Martin is considering scaling down or closing its AstroSpace divisions. The commissioners are hoping that the 42-page study trumpeting the area's assets will prevent the defense industry firm - the county's second largest employer - from shuttering its King of Prussia facility, thus sparing about 5,000 jobs.

To Antonio McDyess, the game meant nothing. He performed as if it meant everything. McDyess had 25 points, 10 rebounds, six blocks and four steals as the Nuggets, playing for the first time since the school shooting in suburban Denver, beat Golden State, 96-84, last night. The Nuggets postponed Tuesday's game against Portland because of the tragedy that resulted in 15 deaths. Denver players wore black patches on their jerseys to honor the victims. "I thought about it all week," McDyess said.

Green Bay Packers coach Mike Holmgren yesterday said he lost track of downs just before Denver scored the winning touchdown late in Sunday's Super Bowl. With 1:47 left in the game and the score tied, 24-24, the Broncos had a second-and-goal situation from the Green Bay 1 when Holmgren ordered his defense to let the Broncos score. At the time, the Packers had two timeouts remaining. Holmgren told the New York Daily News that he ordered the defense to yield because he believed it was first down, and was afraid Denver would be able to kill most of the clock if it kicked a field goal on fourth down.
