Re: Flacco vs Big Baby Ben
Ben- 3 SB appearances and 2 rings
Joe- None and None.
As good as Joe has been and he has been pretty good overall. He's 0-2 head to head against Ben in the playoffs.
Joe is 7-4 overall in the playoffs. 4-0 in the WC round and 3-4 in the divisional or AFCC games. His playoff record has gotten fat with a lot of WC wins against inferior competition. Basically because the Ravens have been a strong WC team finishing second to the Steelers in the division a few times and catching a weaker division winner limping into the playoffs. Flacco does have 2 big playoff wins in my opinion. Titans in 08 and Pats in 09. But he didn't play well in the Titans game as that was a 4 turnover game by the Titans. Joe played great against NE last year but unfortunately didn't get the win.
Ben is 10-4 in the playoffs. 1-2 in WC round and 9-3 in the divisional, AFCC game, or SB. Ben has had a great playoff run in 05, but won the SB with a lousy game in the actual SB. The drive in the 08 SB will go down as one of the greatest of all time. The comeback against the Ravens, down 21-7 at halftime in 2010 was a great win.
Overall, there's no doubt Ben's been more clutch to this point. Flacco can take a step in the right direction this year, but even a SB run this year would not put him ahead in this matchup to this point.
