They held Tom Brady & co. to one offensive TD out of three or four trips inside the 20-25 yd line. And that's just the first half. In the second half, they stepped it up and produced three turnovers. With the first of those turnovers, they put the Patriots in big time catch up mode by getting their fourth TD. With the last of their turnovers, the Ravens ran out the clock and sealed the deal.
Did I mention that the Ravens' defense SHUT OUT the Patriots in the second half.
A stellar defensive performance against one of the best offenses in the league
...and you come in here singing the praises of FLACCO??
I don't have a problem giving Flacco some of his due credit.
He played well enough but he got plenty of support from the whole Ravens team, and from the Pats, too.
