Flacco to Jones at Mile High
Published: September 18, 2013
Down by seven on their own 30-yard line with just 42 seconds to go, things did not look good for the Ravens. But Joe Flacco, in the midst of one of the finest playoff runs in the history of the NFL, dropped back on the muddy Mile High field, a thin, three-man Broncos’ rush somehow managed to get pressure, but Joe Cool, who was absolute zero that day, stepped up in the pocket and uncorked a cannon shot down the right sideline. The ferociously fast Jacoby Jones had pierced the Denver D and was standing all alone, 50 yards downfield, waiting at the other end of that Ravens rainbow. Jones made the catch and finished off the 70-yard play so far ahead of the Denver secondary he could have danced it in. The Ravens went on to win in OT on a Justin Tucker field goal, but Flacco to Jones was not just the best play of 2013, it was the best Ravens play ever.
