The Ravens come off their bye week with some questions to answer in the wake of their blowout loss to the Texans and quarterback Joe Flacco will face some of them on Thursday’s Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network.

Flacco’s contract status and his ability to raise his game to give the Ravens more offensive punch were big storylines during the offseason and it’s fair to say that there hasn’t been resolution on either end through the first seven games of the 2012 season. The Ravens are 5-2, but their offense has remained erratic to this point in the season. Given the slippage on defense, the Ravens need more when they have the ball and we’ll find out how Flacco plans to provide it.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune will also check in with a preview of Thursday night’s game between the Chiefs and Chargers. Erik Kuselias, Mike Florio, Pete Najarian and Amani Toomer will be on hand to take a look at some of the other big games from Week Nine and, as always, they’ll have the latest news from around the league.

It all gets underway at 5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.
