All eyes will be on Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco as we watch Falcons vs Ravens online free today or catch the game live on CBS. Last Sunday was a record-setting victory for Flacco and the Ravens, who at 4-2 are second in the AFC North. The 2-4 Atlanta Falcons are third in the NFC South, but quarterback Matt Ryan is having another great year. Today should provide some QB fireworks.
Flacco had five touchdowns in the first 16 minutes of last Sunday’s 48-17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccanneers. After struggling the previous week against the Colts, Flacco’s 21-of-29, 306-yard performance was an impressive feat. Will he be able to pull off an encore performance today at home?
One of fellow 2008 Draft classmates hopes not. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is once again playing great football. Though the Atlanta Falcons have a 204 record and have lost three in a row, Ryan has completed 149 passes for 1,850 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Last week against the Bears, Ryan led the Falcons back from a 13-3 halftime deficit to a tied ballgame late in the third quarter. But Bears QB Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte drew out the clock, with Forte rushing for 80 yards and two victory-clinching TDs.
Ryan could have a better game today against the Ravens, as Baltimore’s pass defense is giving up 270.5 passing yards per game. That’s also good news for Falcons wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White, who both dropped several catchable passes in last Sunday’s loss.
Still, Flacco will the bigger of the two quarterback stories. Though the chances are slim, he even stands a chance of repeating last week’s epic performance. The Ravens QB lines up today against one of the NFL’s worst pass defenses (278.8 yards) and the 29th-ranked defense for points allowed.
