Baltimore (7-4) at Cincinnati (1-9-1): If I asked you at the beginning of the season the following question, "Would Joe Flacco have a better year than Carson Palmer," you'd have three responses.
"Who is Joe Flacco?"
"What team does he play for?"
"Who is Joe Flacco again?"
Like most fans, I can't believe in the Ravens until they are preparing themselves for their first round playoff game. But Flacco has been better than anyone could have expected this season, and it must be nice for Ravens fans to see that. Honestly, do you think a single person in Baltimore thought before the season started that there was such a thing as a competent quarterback on their roster?
