Raven’s QB Joe Flacco had a productive day against the Vikings on Sunday, completing 28 of 43 passes for 385 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs while compiling a passer rating of 109.2.
Although Flacco’s success came in a losing effort, Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress came away from the game impressed with what he saw from the 2nd-year QB.
“My hat’s off to Joe Flacco,” Childress said on Monday. “We hit that guy eighteen times and sacked him and knocked him around. While he threw a few errant balls, you say he didn’t play like a first-year guy (last year), he didn’t play like a second-year guy (so far this year), and he doesn’t play like a guy that got whacked around a good bit.”
Flacco was especially sharp in the 4th quarter while leading Baltimore on a late-game surge that saw them take a lead at one point. In the game’s final quarter, Flacco was 10 of 16 for 196 yards and 2 scores.
“There was a point that they kind of gave up running it extensively and got into a throw game,” Childress explained. “I think he’s way tougher than you give him credit for. I know about his physical skills and mental skills, but he showed me something in terms of hanging in there.”
