Despite the worst efforts of Joe Flacco, who went 4 of 18 for just 28 yards in the first half, the Ravens are actually trying to make the playoffs by beating the Bengals today. It’s proving to be extremely difficult, and Darqueze Dennard made the task even harder by stealing a catch away from Chris Moore and taking it…
After a 3-4 start, the Baltimore Ravens are in the thick of the AFC wild-card chase, with a hatefest showdown on tap for Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.* But the Ravens are so perfectly ordinary this season, when I pitched an analysis of them to two of my editors, these were their responses:
Joe Flacco, last week’s Bad Quarterback of the Week, was actually quite good in yesterday’s 44-20 stomping of the Detroit Lions. Flacco threw for 269 yards and two touchdowns, and was feeling so good after the game that he opened his press conference by clowning Jameis Winston.
Welcome to Bad Quarterback Performance Of The Week, a recurring feature in which we celebrate the worst quarterback play the NFL has to offer.
This throw from Joe Flacco looks extremely ill-advised on first glance, with Green Bay’s Damarious Randall giving no space and covering Mike Wallace perfectly as he runs towards the end zone. But somehow, Flacco found a seemingly nonexistent window to fit the ball through, and Randall could do nothing to prevent the…
Kiko Alonso drilled Joe Flacco in the head as the Ravens quarterback attempted to slide late in the first half tonight in Baltimore, sending Flacco to the locker room and drawing face-to-face anger from Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.
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.
