I don't agree that Baltimore's chances on Offense depend largely on Flacco. I would say less than us w/ Ben.
They have a much stronger running game than us. Rice is much more dangerous than any of our RBs and he proved it many times.
The difference between the 2 teams is essentially the Defense, year in and year out.
Ben isn't consistent either. Right now I say he's degraded to Flacco's Level.
The big X factor for the Ravens on Offense is that they have a respected running game, the Steelers do not. A good majority of the playoff teams this year can RUN the ball effectively.
Baltimore has Rice, Seattle has Lynch, Atlanta Has Turner, The Niners have Gore, and the Texans have Foster.
