Well shit. Everyone on the Ravens is getting catastrophically injured. Joe Flacco has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season. He tore it on the play above but stayed in to finish out the game despite “an enormous amount of pain.”
After a few breaks went their way, the Ravens found themsleves eight points down with 76 yards to go and 1:53 left, with no timeouts. A tough task under the smoothest of circumstances—and even tougher when the Ravens’ sideline lost communication with the huddle.
Pestilent clownfister Donald Trump did a video Q&A today, and two of the 12 questions he answered were about the NFL. The first and most important was on the eliteness of one Joe Flacco:
Commenter Keisertroll shared a photo of possibly elite quarterback Joe Flacco—back when he was a student at Audubon (N.J.) High School—during Gawker's search for notable people in their readers' yearbooks. Flacco looks so over it.

The Buccaneers' defense is trash right now, but Joe Flacco only needed one half to sufficiently torch them.
Really, when you get right down to it, signing a non-guaranteed contract is like playing the lottery anyway. So there you go, NFL, your most recent Super Bowl MVP and
"highest paid player" recipient of a sham $121 million contract in the off-season is playing the lottery at a chain convenience store like the rest of…
This fall, McDonald's introduced Mighty Wings, those seasoning sticks vaguely flavored like chicken. Remember those commercials with Joe Flacco and Colin Kaepernick? They threw footballs for wings! What a world! Anyway, the promotion started with an inventory of 50 million pounds of wings, and there are still 10…
Current Super Bowl champion Joe Flacco has already thrown a career-high 14 interceptions this season. The Ravens are third in the AFC North with a 5-6 record. The offense is crap. Flacco isn't happy, and he justifiably doesn't think some bullshit Wildcat plays will help anything.
Deep passes are the most exciting play in televised football—the viewing audience can't see the situation downfield until the ball (and the camera) make it down there, so the play always feels, in that tiny moment before we catch up, like a sure touchdown or interception. It's well known that not every QB in the…
I very much expect this to turn into A Thing, because it always does, whether athletes miss a birth to play, or miss a game to be present for a birth.
A reader passed along this photo of Joe Flacco enjoying an ice cream cone at Little Man Ice Cream in Denver. No word on what flavor he had, but because this is Joe Flacco, it was probably plain vanilla with one of those flavorless cones.
Ray Lewis thinks it was a conspiracy that turned the lights off at the Superdome during the Super Bowl last year. Lewis revealed his theory during filming for America's Game, an NFL Films series that discusses the previous Super Bowl with a few members of the winning team. This year, they spoke with Lewis, John…
Because of scheduling complications, the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens will be playing on the road during the NFL's Thursday night opener, a game which the previous year's champion customarily gets to play at home. This has led to some awkwardness from a marketing standpoint, as the NFL has placed pro-Ravens…
