Flacco vs Brady


Recommended Posts

closer statistically then you think.



Both quarterbacks are clutch and both win. But Flacco has typically bested Brady.

Tom Brady is the “consummate NFL quarterback,” in the words of Head Coach John Harbaugh this week.

That might explain why Harbaugh likes his own guy Joe Flaccoicon-article-link.gif so much too.

While few outside observers may not put Flacco and Brady in the same category, they actually share a lot of likenesses. And Flacco has actually gotten the better of him in their one-on-one matchups.

There’s one important statistic that Flacco and Brady share. They both win.

Flacco’s 62 career regular-season wins in his first six seasons are the most by a quarterback in NFL history. Brady was four behind him at 58.

Even this year, the two have continued to pile up the wins despite being without some of their favorite targets. They’ve each been stripped of talent around them.

Flacco lost his most reliable wide receiver, Anquan Boldin, via trade in the offseason. Boldin was the man who caught two touchdowns – including one in which he stood over a Patriots defender, pointed and laughed – in last year’s AFC championship. The Ravens quarterback was without his go-to tight end Dennis Pittaicon-article-link.gif (hip) for the first 12 games of the season.

The Patriots sit with a 10-4 record despite Brady losing tight ends Aaron Hernandez (prison) and Rob Gronkowski (forearm and knee). Gronkowski played in just seven games. Yet Brady has spread the ball around to little-known players Julian Edelman (89 catches), Danny Amendola (51 catches) and rookies Aaron Dobson (35 catches) and Kenbrell Thompkins (32 catches).

In eight career starts against the Ravens, including playoffs, Tom Brady has a 57.7 completion percentage and a -2 touchdown-to-interception ratio – both of which are his worst marks against any NFL opponent.

Well, there’s work to be to done Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium. Let’s beat the Patriots.
