Sunday’s game against New England could help change the way Flacco is perceived. With a strong showing and a win, Flacco could move up the ranks in the quarterback conversation. If he leads the Ravens to a Super Bowl win, it will be hard to discount Flacco’s winning ways.

“The perception probably won’t change, but it does not really matter,” Flacco said.

At the beginning of the season, beating Pittsburgh was of utmost importance. He accomplished that twice en route to the Ravens winning the AFC North. The only step left is winning a conference championship and advancing to the Super Bowl.

“Look what this guy has done,” Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said. “Criticism, he knows is part of the deal. But my man obviously deserves some credit because he is one of the best I’ve been around.”
