Joe Flacco, quarterback, Baltimore Ravens : After a relatively quiet first half, Flacco stepped up in the final 30 minutes, completing 15-of-24 pass attempts for 159 yards and three touchdowns as the Ravens scored 21 straight points to defeat the New England Patriots 28-13 and advance to Super Bowl XLVII. On the night, Flacco completed 21-of-36 attempts for 240 yards and three touchdowns for a passer rating of 106.3. In 12 postseason games, Flacco has now passed for 2,385 yards with 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He has eight touchdowns and zero interceptions during the 2012 postseason. Flacco's performance could not have come at a better time as the 2008 first-round pick out of Delaware is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent in March. That won't happen, though, as the Ravens will likely use the franchise tag to buy themselves a few more months to hammer out a deal that could include around $50 million in guaranteed money.
