In the Ravens 2014 playoff loss to the Patriots, you really cannot blame Joe Flacco. While he had two interceptions in the contest, he also threw for four touchdowns.

With a quarterback ranking of 106.5 he led the Ravens to the Super Bowl.

Proving that he could also burn the Patriots in the regular season, Flacco orchestrated a 31-30 win over the Patriots in week 3 of the 2012 season. The Ravens quarterback had 382 yards and threw for three touchdowns and one interception. Months earlier the Ravens fell short in the AFC Championship Game. In the 2011 postseason’s most exciting game, Flacco threw for 306 yards two touchdowns and a pick.
The moral of the story here is that Joe Flacco is usually his best against the Patriots. Flacco is coming off a four touchdown game against the Miami Dolphins. If Flacco plays like that again, the Patriots are in trouble.
