Flacco completed 21 of 29 passes for 166 yards. He did not throw any interceptions during the contest. Flacco didn't have to do much during the contest. While he was efficient, he didn't air out the ball all that much. His longest pass play went for 24 yards. Both Flacco's touchdowns came from short distances. He found Owen Daniels on a 2 yard touchdown in the first quarter, and added a 1 yard touchdown to Daniels again in the third.
Flacco will take on the Browns Week 3.
As late as the mid-fourth quarter, Flacco had completed just half of his pass attempts, but ended up 35 for 62 overall. He passed for 345 yards and a touchdown, with a bunch chunk coming on an 80-yard score to Steve Smith. He also turned the ball over once on an interception.
Flacco was hoping to bounced back from a poor 2013 season, so this is an inauspicious start. He will hope for better results when the Ravens take on the Steelers Thursday in Week 2.
Flacco had just 20 combined Fantasy points in two games against the Bengals last season, despite chucking up 86 passes. He accounted for just 332 yards and three touchdowns in the games, while turning the ball over six times in those games.
Flacco got a bit more help in the passing game this offseason, but we haven't quite seen how the offense is going to look with those new faces. Flacco should be better than he was a year ago, but he is still something of a risk, especially against a defense that allowed just 15.1 Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks last season. Consider him more of a low-end No. 2 Fantasy option for Week 1.
Flacco bounced back from a rough start and completed 6 of 8 passes for 74 yards on his final drive of the first half. He found Steve Smith for a 24-yard touchdown strike in the second quarter.
Flacco was not needed in the second half. He compiled 180 yards through the air while completing 16 of 23 passes. He added a touchdown, no interceptions and registered a passer rating of 107.2. He was sacked twice.
Flacco was stuck on the sidelines early in the game, as he watched his defense and special teams each score a touchdown before he stepped on the field. He was able to lead three scoring drives in the second quarter, finishing one with a 19-yard strike to Torrey Smith, and heading into halftime with a 27-10 lead. Flacco did a nice job in limited action during his first preseason action, and though he posted a low completion percentage Saturday, he did keep the offense moving in the first half.
