Flacco was a polished product Monday night. He regularly checked out of plays at the line of scrimmage, diagnosing the Bengals' defense and attacking weak points.
His best moment of the night came on a 34-yard touchdown strike to Anquan Boldin early in the second quarter. Seeing the Bengals in a one-deep set, Flacco audibled at the line, looked off safety Reggie Nelson, then dropped one in the bucket to Boldin. You can't play the position much better than that.
