Flacco completed 25 of 47 passes for 203 yards and two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Bengals. Flacco picked things up after halftime, but completed only 5 of 19 passes for 28 yards in the first half. The spark was a six-yard touchdown to receiver Chris Moore at the end of the first half, set up by Moore's 87-yard kick return. The Ravens offense looked like a different team after that, with the only real blemish being a redzone pick-six on a pass bobbled by Moore. Despite the abysmal first half, the veteran signal caller continued his strong play down the stretch, but ultimately fell short of carrying Baltimore to the postseason.
Flacco completed 29 of 38 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns during Saturday's 23-16 win over the Colts. With Baltimore nursing a three-point lead midway through the fourth quarter, Flacco sold the play fake and found tight end Maxx Williams in the flat for a four-yard score. The final stat line might not look like much, but it amounted to Flacco's best performance of the season from a quarterback-rating perspective. After running mostly cold earlier in the season, Flacco has been solid during the Ravens' last six games, of which Baltimore has won five. Flacco has tossed eight touchdowns to just two picks in that span, but takes on a Cincinnati team to close that season that gave him fits in Week 1.
Flacco completed 26 of 42 passes for 288 yards and a touchdown, adding four carries for three yards and another score, in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Browns. Flacco's three best passing yardage totals of the season have all occurred the past three weeks, a stretch in which he's also produced three of his five multi-touchdown games this season. The Ravens finally seem to have find a reasonable balance between taking shots downfield and settling for checkdowns, though the recent outburst admittedly has coincided with a favorable stretch of matchups. Flacco gets another soft opponent in a Week 16 home game against the Colts, albeit with the possibility of weather impacting the game.
Flacco completed 20 of 35 passes for 269 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 39-38 loss to the Steelers. After tossing a pick on the opening drive, Flacco bounced back in a big way by leading the Ravens to six scoring drives against one of the league's best defenses. He was most impressive in the third quarter when he, with his team initially down three points, orchestrated three of such drives to lift his team to an 11-point advantage to start the final quarter of play. However, the wheels fell off thereafter as the Steelers forced punts on two of the next four possessions with Flacco's final chance to win the game ending after he fumbled out of bounds with time expiring. Up next for him and the rest of the Ravens is a Week 15 matchup with the Browns, where Flacco is only a recommended fantasy option in two-quarterback settings.
Flacco completed 22 of 36 passes for 269 yards and a pair of touchdowns during Sunday's 44-20 win over the Lions. Flacco recorded his most productive game of the year, setting a new season high in yardage while tossing multiple touchdowns without a turnover for the first time. He was able to complete throws at all levels, including a 66-yard deep ball down the sideline to Mike Wallace. Flacco had failed to top 200 yards through the air in five of his previous six games, so this was an encouraging development for the veteran. He'll be hard-pressed to produce a repeat performance, however, with a matchup against the Steelers next on the schedule.
