Collegiate Career

Joe Flacco attended the University of Pittsburgh and began playing for the Pittsburgh Panthers football team in 2003, eventually becoming the backup quarterback in 2004.

NFL Career

Joe Flacco was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2008 NFL Draft and signed a five-year contract worth around $30 million (with $8.75 million guaranteed) in July.

Because starters Kyle Boller and Troy Smith were injured, he was able to make his debut as the starting quarterback against the Cincinnati Bengals in 2008. Despite completing 15 passes for 129 yards, Flacco did not throw any touchdowns or interceptions. He completed a 38-yard rushing touchdown, the longest by a quarterback in Ravens franchise history.

The Baltimore Ravens won their first game of the season against the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009. Flacco threw for 307 yards and three touchdowns, both career highs for him, helping the Ravens break the franchise record for most offensive yards in a game.

He threw for 248 yards and completed 52.6% of his passes in the Ravens’ season opener against the New York Jets in 2010, leading them to a victory. In December 2010, the Ravens defeated the Cleveland Browns, and Flacco passed 10,000 yards for the first time in his career. He finished the season with 3,622 passing yards and 25 passing touchdowns, and a passer rating of 93.6.

Flacco had his worst season of his career in 2013. He threw 22 interceptions and 19 touchdowns, the fewest since his rookie year, and his passer rating of 73.1 was the lowest of his career. He was sacked 48 times and was forced to miss the playoffs for the first time in his career.

In 2014, he was ranked 58th on the NFL’s Top 100 Players list. However, for the first time since 2005, the Ravens lost their home opener against the Cincinnati Bengals that year. However, one of his best games came in Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, when he completed 21 of 28 passes for 306 yards, scored five touchdown passes (a career high), had no interceptions, and had a season-high passer rating of 149.7.

He was given the opportunity to play in the 2015 Pro Bowl as an alternate for his outstanding performance during the 2014 season, but he declined because his wife was due to give birth to their third child the same month. However, he was ranked 97th in the NFL Top 100 Players of 2015.

Flacco had a rough year in 2015. It was the first time in his NFL career that he started a season 0-2 down. Flacco finished the season with 266 completed passes, 2,791 yards, 14 touchdowns, 12 interceptions, and an 83.1 passer rating for the Ravens. He did not make the NFL’s annual Top 100 Players list due to his poor performance.

The Ravens signed him to a three-year extension in 2016. During the season, the Ravens defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars and finished with a 3-0 record, their best after three games since 2009. They did, however, miss the playoffs for the second year in a row. Flacco set a career high with 4,317 passing yards and 436 completions, both of which were career highs and franchise bests.

Unfortunately, he had to miss the training camp in July 2017 due to a back injury. He was injured and had to leave the game against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday Night Football. Nonetheless, the Ravens prevailed. Since the Super Bowl, critics say he’s deteriorated into an average player.
