    Report: Ravens could trade for wideout to help Joe Flacco

    The Ravens may explore trades to give Flacco more help at wide receiver, ESPN.com reports.Steve Smith (back) will miss at least one game, Michael Campanaro (back) is done for the year and Breshad Perriman (knee) is out indefinitely. Flacco is thus left with Kamar Aiken, Marlon Brown, Darren Waller and Chris Givens, whom was recently acquired for a seventh-round draft pick.The Ravens might consider making a bigger splash, but their cap situation only allows for so much and there aren't many teams that can spare a starting-caliber wide receiver. Flacco will have a decimated supporting cast for a Week 5 matchup with a Cleveland team that can't stop the run. Unless the Ravens fall behind by multiple scores, Flacco will likely take a backseat to the running game.

    Ravens QB Joe Flacco throws for 189 yards, TD in win

    Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco completed 20 of 33 passes for 189 yards, with one touchdown and one interception, in Thursday's 23-20 overtime win over the Steelers.Flacco threw a terrible interception for the second straight week, but his touchdown pass was a perfect 15-yard strike to Kamar Aiken. The Ravens' signal-caller otherwise had a nondescript performance, with his team largely relying on Justin Forsett's running to move the ball.Already stuck with an incredibly thin receiving corps, Flacco played most of the fourth quarter and overtime without wide receivers Steve Smith (back) and Michael Campanaro (undisclosed). Though Smith's injury didn't appear too serious, Flacco's value will take a significant hit if his go-to receiver misses any time. The Ravens have a Week 5 home game against the Browns.

    Ravens QB Joe Flacco throws for 362 yards, two TDs in loss

    Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco completed 32 of 49 passes for 362 yards, two touchdowns and an interception Sunday's loss to the Bengals. The Ravens were forced to throw more, as they were down 14 points at the half and the ground game was only able to muster 36 yards on 18 attempts. Flacco spread the ball around to nine different receivers, although Steve Smith Sr. stood out among that group with 186 yards and two touchdowns. The veteran's chemistry with Smith has been directly linked with his fantasy contributions through three games, and he will continue to rely heavily on his top option until another skill player steps up. Flacco and the Ravens will look to earn their first win of the season in Week 4 against the Steelers.

    Ravens WR Joe Flacco throws for 383 yards, two TDs in loss

    Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco completed 32 of 45 pass attempts for 384 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 37-33 loss at Oakland. Flacco and the entire Ravens' offense played much better than Week 1, although they fell to 0-2 on the season. The veteran QB did not take a single sack and his lone turnover came in the final minute when Baltimore was in desperation mode. Flacco did a great job using Steve Smith (10 receptions for 150 yards), and he found a new weapon in TE Crockett Gillmore, who caught five passes for 88 yards and two touchdowns. Next up for Flacco will be the Bengals at home.

    Ravens QB Joe Flacco suffers through miserable season opener

    Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw for just 117 yards Sunday in Denver. The last time he played a full game and totaled fewer yards was on Dec. 26, 2010. The difference that day is that Baltimore won. Flacco not only completed 18 of 32 passes for that low total against the Broncos, but his team lost as he was held without a touchdown and fired two interceptions, including one that killed a last-ditch drive deep into Broncos territory. Flacco will try to right the ship next Sunday in Oakland.

    Ravens' Joe Flacco thinks he can play until age 40

    Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco turned 30 in January. That means he may be down to his last decade in the NFL. Flacco thinks he can play until he's 40 years old. "I don't feel any worse because of my age yet," Flacco said, per ESPN. "I'm not going to be 50 and playing. I hope I'm 40, but 50, no." "I'm comfortable with what I do in the offseason and who I work with when I'm not around here," Flacco said. "And it wasn't like that probably the first two years. But ever since then, I'm pretty comfortable and I feel good about it. It's kind of been pretty similar, and I rely on my trainer, and when I come back here I rely on these guys. I think it's working out really well."

    Joe Flacco: Ravens don't need to draft wide receiver

    When your Super Bowl quarterback doesn't believe his team needs to draft a wide receiver, then perhaps it doesn't. Joe Flacco feels the Ravens are well-stocked in that area despite having lost Torrey Smith to free agency. They still boast Steve Smith, Marlon Brown, Kamar Aiken, Michael Campanero and Jeremy Butler, but are expected to seriously considering adding a wideout as early as the first round. "Obviously, without Torrey now, the one thing we probably don't have as much of is that speed, is that one guy who can stretch the field," Flacco told ESPN. "But I'm not going to say we need it. I think we got really good guys and I think we're good with who we have."

    Ravens QB Joe Flacco throws four touchdowns in losing effort

    Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco threw for 292 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions in Baltimore's 35-31 loss to New England. It was Flacco's fourth postseason game with at least three touchdown passes and his first interceptions since 2011 in the playoffs. Flacco connected with wide receiver Kamar Aiken for a 19-yard touchdown on the team's opening drive. He followed that with a touchdown to Steve Smith Sr. from nine yards away. Flacco then hit tight end Owen Daniels in the back of the end zone for an 11-yard score and finished his scoring by finding running back Justin Forsett out of the backfield for a 16 yard touchdown. With the game on the line, Flacco took a shot at the end zone, trying to find Torrey Smith, but was intercepted. "They had a new corner in there [Logan Ryan] and that safety [Duron Harmon] was cheating that way a little bit," Flacco said. "But I thought I might be able to sneak the ball in there and take a shot at the end zone and get us some points on the board there, with Torrey [Smith] on a good matchup, even though they were cheating to his side a little bit. So, I took my shot, and it just didn't work out. Didn't get it there."
