Joe Flacco plays Mega Millions lottery just like everyone else

Joe Flacco has a lot of money, having signed a blockbuster $120 million deal this past offseason after leading the Ravens to a Super Bowl victory. But that isn't going to stop him from trying to get more.

And Flacco wants this payday the easy way, buying some lottery tickets before the Mega Millions jackpot was announced last week. (Spoiler: He didn't win.)

But the best was Flacco's response to the team's official website when asked what he would do if he won the $600-plus million.
