Flacco is a good quarterback, but he isn't capable of carrying this offense on his back. Make no mistake, Flacco struggled mightily in the first 25 minutes of the game. He missed open receivers and took some sacks in key situations. His erratic play early helped contribute to another slow start for the offense. But Flacco also came close to willing the Ravens to a comeback. He took a beating in the pocket and wasn't afraid to venture out of it to scramble for a first down or extend a play long enough to attempt a pass. Ultimately, he wasn't able to get it done, but it's hard to fault him entirely for another uneven performance. The Ravens have no running game, which allows defenses to play two deep safeties against him. The offensive line did not protect him well enough Sunday. And outside of Torrey Smith, his pass-catchers are inconsistent, especially the tight ends, who combined for two catches for 17 yards. Flacco is just not yet at the level where he can hoist a group like this over the top.
