3. Joe Flacco played the finest game of his postseason career (yeah, I know, that's not saying much), completing 25 of 34 attempts for 265 yards and two touchdowns. He bounced back from two first-half fumbles to lead the Ravens to 27 unanswered points against the Chiefs, and he was efficient running the Ravens' pass-happy attack. Flacco took what the Chiefs gave him -- check-downs, crossing patterns and about a dozen wide-open looks to tight end Todd Heap -- and routinely exploited them for first downs. Flacco will be asked to make a few more big-league throws against the Steelers. But Sunday, for the first time in three trips to the playoffs, he was more than a bush-league performer.
