Joe Flacco did a good job making his reads and being on the same page with his receivers. His passes had some velocity on them, and his best throws were high and tight. He missed on one long one to Anquan Boldin, but he delivered when...

Joe Flacco had his bad moments, but they were few compared to his overall game. In crunch time against one of the best defenses in the league. He had poise and composure. A win like this in Pittsburgh should do a lot for his confidence....

Joe Flacco was inconsistent, but two TD passes were dropped. Sometimes he held on to the ball too long, and at times he floated it. Flacco had two turnovers, but the fumble really wasn't his fault on the Ravens' first offensive play....
