ESPN listed their top Super Bowl MVPs of all time, and a Ravens player came in at number 8. That’s right, elite Joe Flacco cracked the top ten for his epic playoff performance in 2013.
Here’s what they had to say about Joe:
Only a 34-minute game delay caused by a power outage in the Superdome could slow Flacco during the Ravens’ 34-31 victory over San Francisco. The 49ers’ defense finished the 2012 regular season ranked among the NFL’s top five in a long list of categories, but Flacco did not seem to notice. His three first-half touchdown passes gave Baltimore a 21-6 halftime lead before the power went out early in the third quarter. The 49ers stormed back to make the game close, but Flacco’s early brilliance was enough for Baltimore. He finished the day completing 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs. Flacco was 7-of-10 for 158 yards and two scores on third down.
With Joe’s 2013 playoff run, it’s hard to argue against this.
