Flacco has had his struggles this season -- particularly on the road -- but the fifth-year quarterback was a man in complete control in frigid road conditions at Mile High. Flacco was precise on a day when Baltimore's struggles in special-teams coverage left no margin for error.
His greatest achievement came late in the fourth quarter, a 70-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones that shocked the Mile High crowd into silence, tied the game and nearly shut down Twitter.
"You have to get a little bit of luck and it worked out," Flacco said. "We were able to take a shot and everybody came through when that one opportunity arose."
Flacco finished 18-of-34 passing for 330 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions, a nearly flawless effort considering the conditions. He now has five road playoff wins, tied with Eli Manning for the most in NFL history. Flacco is a bona fide bad man in January.
