Perhaps the biggest obstacle for Flacco and Baltimore is playing on the road. The Ravens went 7-2 at home (including last week) and are a very mediocre 4-4 on the road. In addition, Flacco has thrown 17 of his 24 touchdown passes this season in Baltimore.

“You just have to be ready to go into a hostile environment and play your best football,” he said. “It’s not going to be up and down with the crowd; they’re going to be in it 100 percent for the whole game.
