Because of the rain-soaked field, the conditions affected handling the football.
"The wind was pretty crazy, but the bigger issue was that the ball, every time you got it, when Gino had to snap it out of a divot, it was either wet or had all kinds of mud on it," Flacco said. "This was an issue with some of the timing stuff on getting a grip on it quick enough. If we could sit back there with some time on those rhythm plays, it wasn't too bad. But, you guys saw it out there. It was pretty crazy."
