Flacco makes early exit in Cincy


The Ravens have an outside shot at the No. 3 seed in the AFC.  The potential reward from a one-spot climb apparently doesn’t justify the risk of exposing certain key players to injury.

Quarterback Joe Flacco exited the Week 17 game at Cincinnati after a 16-snap preseason cameo appearance, culminating with a sack.

Running back Ray Rice, contrary to reports he won’t play, has participated on a limited basis, with three carries for five yards.

The Ravens lead, 7-0, thanks to a touchdown drive engineered by backup Tyrod Taylor.

    Tyrod should’ve took this team over last season. Same intangibles as Wilson and had a better college career. I bet he has a good day today and Flacco blows in the playoffs leading to a QB controversy heading into next season.

    A Cleveland team with a QB that just got signed to the 53 man roster.

    Steeler fans laughing cause the Ravens are in the playoffs and can sit their starters and their team is playing just to be 8-8 and have their first team on the field…yall are pathetic! Big up to real steeler fans I respect you but the fakes ones can take a hike

    Do you people even watch football?
    Ravens are the only team to make the playoffs 5 straight years since 2008 season. Flacco is 3rd in wins during the regular season and has won a playoff game each year he has been in the league. 2 afc championship appearances. The most recent was last year where everyone on every tv channel admitted he out played Tom Brady….. If you think he should be benched you need to watch a different sport. Look at Brees and Rivers first few years under Cam Cameron, then look at their stats after he left. The training wheels are off now, he will succeed…. He is ranked between 8th-12th depending on where you value stats, wins, playoff wins and performances. That means 20-24 teams would be glad to have him.

    ^ how about those ravens? That’s…that’s what I thought..

    ^ how bout em? close to winning yesterday with backups. dont see how you can talk junk since the bengals havent won a playoff game in thirty years.

  14. mikebrownistheworstownerinprosports says: Dec 31, 2012 2:50 PM

    We played our backups too. Btw, “close to winning” = losing. Bengals now 11-9 against Ravens under Marvin.

    Good job by Cincy getting to the playoffs 2 years in a row, i guess it beats the Steelers. I t would be nice to see the ravens get some props for winning the division.
