BEHIND THE NUMBERS: The road is unkind to Joe the Quarterback

Street Talk BEHIND THE NUMBERS: The road is unkind to Joe the Quarterback

Did you get a warm fuzzy from seeing Joe Flacco toss four TDs last week at home against the Bears?  Remember that feeling because Flacco’s stats on the road this year are vastly different compared to the friendly confines of M&T Bank Stadium. The Ravens are 1-2 in their last three road games with Flacco totaling 1 TD and 5 interceptions.  We all know the drill here to come out with a win at Pittsburgh; limit turnovers and convert the Red zone opportunities.
