Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco won't wow you when you look at the stats from today. 17-for-26 with 273 with a touchdown and interception don't jump off the page, but the way Flacco battled the weather wouldn't show up on paper.

"When you go out there, you aren't thinking too much about it," said Flacco, "You just throw the ball well, and make sure you don't lay off it so you can get it through the wind." 

With winds swirling around 26 mph, Flacco managed to complete two passes over 60 yards today.

The first, a 60-yard completion to Torrey Smith early in the second quarter, set up a field goal. The second, however, was a 66-yard bomb to Jacoby Jones which beat former Raven, Ed Reed.
