In two plays that never should have happened Joe Flacco racks up 130 yards, if you take those out his numbers look rather pedestrian, 200 yards, 50% completion rate, 1 TD.
That is the primary reason I wouldn't take the Ravens, wouldn't even think about it. Two defensive brain farts and Flacco goes from bum to hero. I don't think NE lets plays like that happen and I don't know how Baltimore stops NE enough.
At least the Bungles effort was on a tip. I agree about how bad it was to get beat deep there. If my dad were still here, he would have used that play as evidence that it was "the fix of the week."
