Flacco Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

AFC Offensive Player of Week One

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco stole the show in front of a national TV audience Monday night and the NFL has recognized him for that performance.

Flacco has been named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Week for leading the Ravens to a 44-13 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. Flacco completed 21-of-29 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns no interceptions. He finished the game with a quarterback rating of 128.4.

Flacco ran the Ravens no-huddle offense to near perfection, spreading the ball around to seven different targets. He orchestrated scoring drives of 51, 63, 82, 89, 53 and 28 yards against a Bengals defense that ranked 10th in the NFL last season.

This is Flacco’s second time winning the award, as he also was also recognized during his rookie season in 2008 following a 248-yard, two-touchdown effort against the Browns.
