General News (Tue Jan 27): will have his fourth difference offensive coordinator in as many years in offensive coordinator Marc Trestman. However, head coach John Harbaugh is confident Flacco will get along with Trestman after the quarterback was involved in the decision to hire Trestman in the first place. "I think personality-wise, they're going to hit it off really well. They've both very smart, they're both very detailed and they're both very direct in their communication," Harbaugh said.

Joe Flacco played very well against the Steelers. Despite early success in the run game the Ravens weren't afraid to go pass heavy as the defense dictated. The offense functioned efficiently avoiding drops and keeping down and distances manageable. Whether it was quick passes to Aiken, Brown or Juszczyk in the flat or scrambling for yardage when needed. Flacco didn't allow pressure or hits to bother him and Kubiak had an excellent game calling plays. Flacco engineered a scoring drive following a quick three and out to open the game. Flacco exploited the Steelers playing deep zone coverage. The Ravens were able to run the ball and Flacco found Daniels twice working the middle of the field for nice gains. It was obvious from the beginning Flacco would be pressured often because of Hurst. James Harrison had little trouble beating the tackle to pressure Flacco with his speed. The drive was capped with a Pierce touchdown. Flacco made an impressive throw deep downfield sideline throw to Steve Smith on a crossing pattern for a 23 yard gain. Flacco had Smith open for a touchdown two plays later on a corner route but threw the ball out of his reach. Flacco converted a 3rd and 10 to keep the drive alive with a well-timed pass to Daniels on an out route beating tight coverage. Flacco scrambled away from pressure on 3rd and goal and tried to float the ball to Marlon Brown as James Harrison gave chase. But William Gay made a great play leaping a deflected the sure touchdown and forcing a field goal. Flacco again converted a third and long this time finding Torrey Smith wide open on the slant for 17 yards needing 14. Flacco's accurate pass allowed for yards after the catch. Flacco was sacked and fumbled as Bernard Pierce missed the blitz pick up again forcing a field goal on a promising drive. Flacco threw a perfect pass down the far sideline to Steve Smith who was well covered and had a safety closing in one him for a 40 yard gain. Flacco had to scramble away from pressure in the red zone as Harrison beat Hurst around the corner eventually finding Torrey in the back of the end zone for an 11 yard touchdown. Flacco made another beautiful throw to Smith Sr. who was in the middle of a triangle of Steelers defenders picking up 18 yards. Flacco followed it up with a horrible decision under pressure to throw to Torrey Smith who managed to save an interception by knocking the ball out of McCain's hands. However, Smith did no favors for Flacco a few plays later. Flacco threw a dime to Smith on 3rd and 1 40 yards downfield but Smith misjudged the pass and couldn't get both feet inbounds. The incompletion forced another field goal. Following an interception Flacco found Crocket Gillmore wide open off play action for an uncontested 21 yard touchdown sealing the game for Baltimore.

2014 Week 19 vs NE (28 / 45 / 292 / 4 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Joe Flacco played very well against the Patriots. He had excellent protection all game and did an excellent job of escaping and throwing from muddy pockets. New England's defensive line was a nonfactor with Hurst handling Chandler Jones with help from Osemele. However their secondary proved to be problematic for both Smiths. Flacco couldn't rely on either Smith to win consistently so they began spreading the Patriots out and attacking with Campanaro and Marlon Brown. Flacco was precise and consistent no matter the coverage or target. However he did not play mistake free and came up short in the end. Flacco engineered an opening touchdown drive that set the tone for the Ravens' day offensively. The Ravens came out throwing and Flacco was precise from the start. Flacco hit Smith Sr. and Torrey Smith over the middle on 5 step drops for 19 and 22 yard gains. Flacco came back and hit Aiken on a double move off of play action for an easy 19 yard touchdown. On the following possession Jacoby Jones dropped a potential 20 yard catch down the seam on a nice throw from Flacco. An offside penalty on the play helped sooth the sting of the drop and kept the drive moving. Flacco came right back with 2 nice throws to Steve Smith. The first was a strike to the deep middle for 26 yards over the linebackers and in front of the safeties. Flacco came back to Smith who beat Revis before bobbling, then securing the touchdown pass on the well timed route and throw. Flacco began the game 8/11 with all 3 incompletions coming targeting Owen Daniels. WIth 2 of those targets practically being throw away passes. However negative plays and mistakes would begin to hurt the Ravens. First, a personal foul by Torrey Smith left them in 3rd and 20, forcing a punt. A -7 yard pass to Touissant left them in 3rd and long once again. Then an end around to Campanaro failed to convert a 3rd and 1. A long, questionable pass interference call sparked the offense and moved them close to the red zone. A few play later Flacco found Daniels being trailed by Hightower on a seam route for an 11 yard score. Flacco made a nice throw to start the Ravens opening drive of the second half. Flacco fell away from pressure and threw off his back throw barely getting the pass to Campanaro who scooped the pass off the grass. Flacco made a very questionable decision targeting Juszczyk on a nine route despite great coverage from Jamie Collins. Another miss left the Ravens in 4th and 6 on the 36 yard line. Staying aggressive Flacco threw a bomb to Torrey Smith who had 2 or 3 steps on Brandon Browner for 35 yards. The pass was underthrown and should have been a touchdown but it was still an impressive play from Flacco. Flacco found an uncovered Forsett the following play for a 20 yard touchdown. One of Flacco's few poor decisions of the game would cost him. Flacco forced a deep crossing route to Torrey Smith and was intercepted my McCourty. Flacco tried to put the ball over the corner underneath and McCourty was in perfect position for the over thrown pass. After running the ball down field at will, Flacco couldn't cap the drive with a touchdown. On 3rd and goal the Ravens ran an almost identical play to Daniels' first score but this time Flacco's pass skipped off Daniels' finger tips forcing a field goal. Flacco would come back to Daniels on 4th and 3. This time Daniels shook the intial coverage and ran up field for 17 yards keeping the Ravens season alive. The hope would end a few plays later when Flacco threw another 9 route bomb to Torrey Smith and was intercepted by Harmon. Flacco inexplicably faded away onto his back foot as he launched the deep pass.
