From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): A garbage time TD bailed out a solid day in a great matchup for Flacco. His defense and running game are creating game scripts that aren't great for passing stats, but Flacco is still worth a look in deeper leagues playing against a suddenly mortal Bengals defense on the road this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs IND (22 / 38 / 235 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense executed poorly against the Colts. The offensive line was terrible for stretches of the game. The running game started slow and penalties and drops stalled numerous drives. On the opening possession Flacco tried to escape the pocket on third and short to take a shot deep to Torrey Smith. Before he could set his feet to throw, Cory Redding sacked him almost untouched. Flacco was sacked again to end the following possession as Hurst got beat with speed and Wagner simply blocked no one. Flacco was playing well to open the game but the rest of the offense wouldn't really let it show. Flacco made 3 great plays to keep the Ravens offense moving early. He threw perfect passes downfield, 1 to each Smith. Then on 3rd and 6 he faced early pressure and despite being wrapped up he found Forsett in the flat who got up field for a big gain. The drive was stopped on 4th and goal when Hurst failed to block anyone and Flacco was sacked again. Flacco made a really ugly throw to Torrey Smith on an in breaking route as Davis sat underneath with safety help over the top. The throw hit Davis between the numbers for an easy interception. A hands to the face penalty by Osemele helped stall the Ravens following drive. The next possession ended without much success after Flacco and Torrey Smith missed on a wide open play which was followed by a drop on 3rd down by Steve Smith. On the Ravens touchdown drive Flacco threw an ill-advised deep ball to Torrey Smith who luckily drew a pass interference penalty on an overthrow into double coverage. To begin the game tying drive Hurst was beat badly by Werner on an inside move for an easy Flacco sack. Flacco kept the drive alive on 4th down, lofting a pass to Daniels who had gotten behind his man down the seam. Flacco nearly hit Marlon Brown for a huge gain as he eluded rushers and heaved one 60 yards downfield. On the final 4th down Flacco had Torrey Smith deep but didn't lead him enough. Smith had to wait for the pass and contact with Toler caused an incompletion to end the game. Overall it was an inconsistent display with too few big plays to compensate for the big mistakes.

2014 Week 6 vs TB (21 / 29 / 306 / 5 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Joe Flacco topped his excellent game in Carolina. With 2 rookies starting on the offensive line the Ravens' offense dominated. Flacco wasn't sacked, the running game was efficient and receivers made plays when given the opportunity. Even when faced with elongated down and distances smart and fast decision making from Flacco kept the offense humming. In the red zone Flacco hit Torrey Smith perfectly in stride on a slant for an easy touchdown. Following an interception and starting in good field position Flacco hit Smith again on a slant for a touchdown. The Ravens had obviously seen something to exploit in Tampa Bay's coverage because the first 5 throws of the game were to the flat or to the intermediate middle area. On 3rd and 8 in the red zone Flacco threw a perfect touch pass between the linebackers and both safeties to Kamar Aiken who was running the seam for a touchdown. Flacco was very accurate and throwing with more touch than usual. He had a very nice pass to Daniels on a corner route that floated down perfectly into Daniels' hands. Flacco followed this with a highpoint pass to Campanaro down the seam for his 4th touchdown strike in the 1st quarter. Flacco continued his dominance with a deep bomb to Steve Smith who he found in stride for a 56 yard touchdown. After the two made a connection, there were several more. Flacco made an impressive throw with pressure in his face stepping up to Steve Smith on 3rd and 7. Flacco would go back to Smith more on a scoring possession featuring 3 catches and first downs from Steve.

2014 Week 7 vs ATL (16 / 25 / 258 / 2 / 2 pass, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)

Joe Flacco and the offense had an up and down day. On the opening drive, Flacco underthrew Torrey Smith on a deep ball he had beat Robert Alford on, but Smith came back to the ball and drew a pass interference call. The Ravens went 5 wide in the red zone with Daniels in the slot. Daniels settled down between 3 defenders and Flacco showed off his arm strength gunning the ball into tight coverage. The following possession stalled quickly as Flacco faced pressure and couldn't find any open receivers. The inconsistency of James Hurst was problematic. 3 holding penalties, mistakes and failed assignments were very detrimental to the offense. Although his play slowly but progressively improved as the game went on. Flacco made another impressive throw similar to the Daniels touchdown to Steve Smith on a slant pattern. Flacco waited for Smith to clear the linebacker underneath and rifled a pass to Smith in a tight window between 2 defenders. On the following play Hurst blocked no one , he appeared to not know the play, but Flacco stood tall in the pocket and found Gilmore for a first down despite the immediate pressure. Flacco couldn't keep his impressive play streak alive. Flacco threw a deep ball to Torrey Smith who got shielded by Alford who saw the pass coming the whole way and made an easy interception. Flacco had predetermined where he wanted to throw the ball and the results were poor. Next series ended with another free rusher that sacked Flacco. Worrilow went untouched by Yanda for the sack. On 1st and 20 following the 3rd Hurst holding penalty of the first half, Flacco made a really nice throw to Daniels who got vertical down the seam for a gain of 19. Another miscommunication on the left side of the offensive line lead to another free rusher at Flacco and an incomplete pass. With 37 seconds to play Flacco closed the first half with another scoring drive. First he hit Daniels on an out for 11 yards to start the drive. Then a perfect pass on an in route to Torrey Smith for 22 yards was all Justin Tucker needed to get in field goal range. After carrying a big lead into the second half the Ravens were more passive throwing downfield. Mostly relying on the running game and defense to close out the win. Flacco drove his team into the red zone once again behind the battering run game. Flacco threw a perfect pass to Torrey Smith who watched the would be touchdown skip off his hands. The following play Flacco threw an ugly interception to Alford once again. The pass was lofted into the end zone and the jump ball was easily caught by the closest player who was Alford. Each week it seems Flacco is getting more comfortable with all of his recievers, except maybe Jacoby Jones who's largely been removed from the gameplan with the improvement and emergence of young players like Campanaro and Aiken who have started making plays on a weekly basis. With less than 2 minutes to play, holding a 15 point lead the Ravens went for it on 4th and 9. The result was a perfect throw from Flacco and a redo for Torrey Smith who hauled in the long pass for 39 yards and a touchdown.
