Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 5 vs CLE (29 / 56 / 298 / 0 / 1 pass, 2 / 13 / 0 rush)
Joe Flacco and the Ravens had a very inconsistent performance against the Browns. The Ravens had two costly turnovers, struggled to make contested catches, and were too predictable with their offensive game plan. The Browns' defense paid special attention to John Brown with a safety over the top of him for the majority of the game. Michael Crabtree had a game to forget with two drops and a missed opportunity for a game winning touchdown in the end zone. The heavy usage of Buck Allen is worrisome and detrimental to the offense. Allen offers almost nothing in terms of dynamic play making ability. After finally establishing some sort of offensive rhythm and moving the ball into the red zone, Flacco threw an ugly interception. Flacco tried to throw the ball away in the direction of Nick Boyle but the pass was tipped at the line of scrimmage and intercepted by Denzel Ward. Flacco moved the Ravens into scoring position running the two minute offense before halftime. However, Tucker's field goal attempt was blocked leaving the Ravens with 3 first half points. Flacco made two throws late in the game that could have helped the Ravens pull out the victory. The first hit Crabtree in the hands in the end zone for a go ahead score and the second was a back shoulder throw to Brown where Brown could only get one foot in bounds. The completion would have set up a long field goal attempt for Justin Tucker.
2018 Week 4 vs PIT (28 / 42 / 363 / 2 / 0 pass, 2 / -3 / 0 rush)
Joe Flacco took the Ravens down the field for a touchdown on their opening possession.

After taking over in great field position following a turnover Flacco connected with Chris Moore to get the Ravens into the red zone. Flacco found Alex Collins in the flat for a 3 yard touchdown to cap the drive. One of the few times Flacco faced pressure in the game he missed Michael Crabtree who was wide open downfield on a potential 56 yard touchdown. Flacco threw a perfect bomb off of play action to hit John Brown 50 yard downfield in stride for a 71 yard gain. The drive ended with an Collins fumble on the 1 yard line. Flacco set up a second half field goal attempt with completions over the middle to Crabtree and Tim White. A key 3rd down conversion to Willie Snead set up another field goal attempt on a drive that was otherwise mostly run plays. With a 6 point lead and starting deep in their own territory Flacco and the Ravens orchestrated another scoring drive that ate up almost 7 minutes of game clock.
2018 Week 3 vs DEN (25 / 40 / 277 / 1 / 0 pass, 4 / 2 / 0 rush)
Flacco absorbed a big hit and sack from Bradley Chubb on the Ravens opening possession but otherwise did a good job of getting rid of the ball and avoiding sacks. One of the many impressive throws made on the day was a 15 yard completion to Willie Snead over the middle between two defenders. Flacco hit Mark Andrews over the middle who came wide open off of play action for 30 yards to set up an Alex Collins touchdown. Flacco converted a 3rd and 9 with a 19 yard back shoulder throw to MIchael Crabtree. Flacco capped the drive hitting Buck Allen in the flat who took it for a 12 yard score. Flacco dropped a perfect bomb to John Brown for 44 yards. Flacco held the ball a little too long and was sacked by Shane Ray forcing a fumble the Ravens recovered. Flacco threw an absolute laser down the seam to Mark Andrews for a 29 yard gain setting up another Allen touchdown. Flacco ran a bootleg keeper on 3rd and 1 to seal the game. Flacco beat two defenders to the edge with his speed.
2018 Week 2 vs CIN (32 / 55 / 376 / 2 / 2 pass, 3 / 8 / 0 rush)
Joe Flacco played terrible in prime time against the Bengals. Flacco made inaccurate throws all game long and could have had as many as 5 turnovers. Flacco faced frequent pressure and looked uncomfortable throughout the game. Flacco tired to force the ball downfield after the Ravens went three and out on their first possession. Flacco overthrew Michael Crabtree over the middle and the pass was easily intercepted. During the Ravens second possession Flacco was sacked and the drive stalled with a another off target throw towards Crabtree. After managing only 17 yards on their first four possessions Flacco finally put together a scoring drive. Flacco threw a 45 yard bomb to John Brown that could have been intercepted but Brown made a great catch and gave the Ravens their first big play. The drive was capped with a 1 yard Buck Allen run for a touchdown. Joe Flacco opened the second half with a 25 yard completion to Maxx Williams down the seam. The pass set up a Justin Tucker field goal. Flacco had his arm hit by Carlos Dunlap as he threw deep downfield to John Brown and the jump ball was easily intercepted. Trailing by 8 points and running the two minute offense Flacco absorbed an ugly sack along the sideline and fumbled the ball back to the Bengals.
2018 Week 1 vs BUF (25 / 34 / 236 / 3 / 0 pass, 2 / 3 / 0 rush)

The Ravens offense slowed down slightly with three failed possessions but still managed two field goals thanks to excellent field position. Flacco got the offense back on track with two nice 20 yard completions to Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead. Flacco capped the drive with a perfect throw on a fade route to Crabtree for a 12 yard touchdown. Following a turnover Flacco hit Snead in stride for a 13 yard score. Another touchdown following an interception allowed Flacco to take a seat and Lamar Jackson entered the game 5 minutes into the second half.
