You know how Joe Flacco has been looking for that one thing he can hang his hat on? That one fallback or end to any argument against him?
Well now he has this.
On Sunday night in Foxboro, Joe Flacco won his sixth road playoff game, the most of any starting quarterback all-time. It turns out that the thing that Flacco can hang his hat on is winning postseason games on the road. As a Ravens fan, that’s very comforting.
Flacco again out shined Tom Brady in the conference championship. He threw for 240 yards, found the end zone three times and never threw to the guys wearing red, white and blue. Brady threw for more yards, 320, but had two batted balls end up in the hands of the Ravens defenders.
Flacco became the fifth quarterback in league history to throw three touchdown passes against the Pats in a playoff game (Pastorini, Delhomme, McNabb and Sanchez) and helped lead the Ravens to a 13-7 all-time record in the postseason, the best winning percentage in NFL history (.650).
He’s now thrown eight TD passes and zero interceptions this postseason.
Of course, a victory in New Orleans would silence Flacco’s naysayers forever.
