Asked if there was a possibility of Flacco being the backup for Sunday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh responded,"Yeah, there's a scenario for that, sure."
Harbaugh hasn't given any real indication that Flacco is still the Ravens' starter. With the Ravens 3-0 under Jackson since Flacco's injury, Harbaugh might be just staying with the hot hand or ensuring Flacco is completely healthy before putting him back under center. Or it might be a changing of the guard in Baltimore.
While Flacco's 4-5 record as a starter this season leaves much to be desired, he still has posted a higher completion percentage (61.1 to 60.0), more passing yards per game (273.9 to 151.0) and a better passer rating (84.2 to 67.0) than Jackson. The Ravens, however, are averaging a staggering 238.7 rushing yards per game with Jackson under center (92.6 with Flacco).
If Jackson excels Sunday it could go a long way into determining whether he'll remain the starter for the rest of the season.
