From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): After an anemic attempts first week, Flacco was more active in Week 2 and accounted for two scores in a game his defense controlled. He'll have a tougher matchup against the Jaguars this week, but the signs are there that Flacco will still be a viable good matchup streamer this year.

Week 3: at Jacksonville Jaguars

All QB vs JAX

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Joe Flacco looked a bit looser and more comfortable in Week 2, doubling his Week 1 attempt total and completing 74% of them. He's still not pushing the ball downfield, though; through 2 games he's sent just 4 passes more than 15 yards beyond the line. As a result, the Ravens' only passing "attack" has come on sanitized short passes to Jeremy Maclin and the tight ends, and in the flats to the running backs. Maclin has scored twice, but his production has suffered mightily (6 catches, 87 yards), and Mike Wallace (2 for 15) has been invisible with a still-getting-there quarterback. The Ravens led the NFL in attempts from 2015-16, and as Flacco works back from his offseason back woes, he'll post more productive days. But at the moment, he's doing little more than moving the sticks from underneath, and it's hard to expect any real numbers from this passing game. Ben Watson's 8-catch, 91-yard Week 2 performance was nice, but it's his absolute upside; there's little dynamism left in his legs. The Jaguars have yet to cede anything noteworthy through the air, but their apparent dominance must be taken with several grains of salt. Their Week 1 success came against the woeful Tom Savage and ultra-raw Deshaun Watson of Houston, and Marcus Mariota was able to create plays over the 2.5 quarters their Week 2 matchup was competitive. Cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye have been generally strong in coverage, but the Jaguars did allow a handful of chunk plays to the Titans' cabinet of receivers last Sunday. All in all, this is definitely an ascending unit, with a talented, young cornerback duo, playmaking linebackers, and seemingly the best version of Calais Campbell ever. But if Joe Flacco steps forward in his recovery and conditioning this week, he'll have opportunities to make plays down the field.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs CLE (25 / 34 / 217 / 2 / 1 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)

Joe Flacco played well outside of an ugly interception. The Ravens used Flacco repeatedly on bootlegs off of play action and Flacco looked well throwing on the run. Flacco looked sharp and connected with Jeremy Maclin and Ben Watson on the Ravens opening possession. The drive stalled with a drop by Breshad Perriman. Flacco appeared to predetermine where he would throw the ball on a deep heave to Mike Wallace that was easily intercepted by Jason McCourty. Wallace was not expecting the pass. Flacco responded with his best drive of the game. Flacco escaped the pocket after his initial reads were covered and connected with Ben Watson down the sideline for 20 yards. Flacco again found Watson for 23 more yards down the seam beating the blitz. Flacco capped the drive with a bullet to Buck Allen on a bootleg off of play action for a 9 yard touchdown. Following an interception and a long run by Allen, Flacco found Maclin for a 2 yard touchdown. After two stalled possessions with the passing game beginning to look out of sync, the Ravens returned to a ground heavy attack with a two score lead.

2017 Week 1 vs CIN (9 / 17 / 121 / 1 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense took a hyper conservative approach against the Bengals. The offense was inefficient and failed to take advantage of the 5 turnovers forced by the defense. Flacco attempted 1 pass downfield but otherwise relied on the run game, short passing game, and defense to generate offense. The game plan became even more conservative after the Ravens took 17-0 lead at halftime. Flacco did not complete a pass in the second half and both Terrence West and Buck Allen ended the game with more carries than Flacco had pass attempts. Flacco heavily targeted Danny Woodhead on the Ravens opening possession. The drive stalled in the red zone with a wayward Flacco pass falling between Woodhead and Breshad Perriman forcing a field goal attempt. The Ravens following possession ended with a quick 3 and out. On 3rd down Flacco threw at the feet of Jeremy Maclin who had separation in the middle of the field. The Ravens again went 3 and out the ensuing possession. This time Flacco was sacked on 3rd down after holding the ball far too long and not throwing to Nick Boyle who was open underneath. Flacco connected with Boyle off of play action for 14 yards and hit Jeremy Maclin on a slant route who took the catch 48 yards to the end zone for the Ravens first touchdown. Under pressure Flacco threw off target on a check down to Terrence West. The pass was tipped and intercepted. Flacco did not complete a pass for the remainder of the game.
