Draft Scout Joe Flacco News
11/25/14 - QB Joe Flacco came out of the bye and thrived using a more simplified offense under offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.
Flacco was crisp for most of the game against New Orleans, going 18 of 24 for 243 yards with a touchdown and no turnovers. Flacco had a passer rating of 120.7 and was only sacked once. He was able to release some pressure with an effective running game.
Flacco also called an audible in the third quarter when he saw the Saints had stacked the right side of the line. He handed the ball off to Justin Forsett who instead ran left and found a hole for a 20-yard touchdown. In short, Flacco has shown he can be good when he is allowed to stay in his comfort zone and is not under a constant stress.
11/10/14 - QB Joe Flacco has won his 43rd game at M&T Bank Stadium since entering the league in 2008, tying Tom Brady for the most wins at home among all quarterbacks over that span. Flacco completed 16 of 27 passes for 169 yards with a touchdown with no turnovers. On the season, Flacco is the sixth-best quarterback in the NFL, throwing for 2,521 with a 90.7 passer rating. He also has 17 touchdowns with eight interceptions and has been sacked 14 times.
11/09/14 - QB Joe Flacco won his 43rd game at M&T Bank Stadium, tying Tom Brady for the most wins at home among all quarterbacks since 2008. Flacco was able to withstand considerable pressure from the Titans most of the game. He completed 16 of 27 passes for 169 yards with a touchdown with no turnovers. "They were really getting after us early," Flacco said. "I thought we hung in there really well. It was a really tough game and nothing came easy. We really had to grind it out."
11/03/14 - QB Joe Flacco has been susceptible to making crucial mistakes when facing an aggressive pass rush. He threw an interception in the second quarter against the Steelers when scrambling to avoid a sack. That led to Pittsburgh's go-ahead touchdown and the Steelers never trailed again.
"I kind of lost my mind on that whole entire play," Flacco said. "I got everybody messed up and thought I could throw a hot route and like I said, I lost my mind on that play and got everybody messed up. Things weren't right and I tried to throw the ball away to the sidelines and I just didn't get it there."
When Flacco has time in the pocket, he has shown he can make teams pay. However, the offensive line has let him down in the past two games where he has absorbed five sacks and has been under constant pressure. For the year, Flacco has thrown for 2,352 yards with 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions for a passer rating of 90.7. He has also thrown five interceptions in the past three games.
10/27/14 - QB Joe Flacco had his worst performance of the season against the Bengals in Week 8. He completed 17 of 34 passes for 195 yards and two interceptions, with a passer rating of 43.1. When Flacco has time to look for his primary or even secondary receivers, he can make teams pay. However, he struggles when teams bring added pressure and is prone to commit costly mistakes. Cincinnati scored 10 points off his two turnovers. The Ravens also failed to get any points after failing to get in the end zone with four plays inside the Bengals' 5-yard line on their opening drive. "We had the turnovers and then we gave up seven points there, or at least three points there. I love that we're going for it. We just have to make the plays, and we have to get in the end zone."
