giving up almost 9 yards per rush against QBs (the WORST in the NFL)

Tom Brady has a subpar 7 TD and 8 INT in seven career games versus the Ravens, but he played very well in Baltimore in Week 3, completing 28-of-41 passes (68.3%) for 335 yards, 1 TD and 0 INT. Brady has put up huge numbers in his 23 career playoff games (63% completions, 5,629 passing yards, 41 TD, 20 INT), but his worst two postseason passer ratings have both come versus this Ravens

Flacco in his last 5 playoff games has 12 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions

And on the road Flacco has been SHOCKINGLY good:
His 5 career road playoff wins is MORE THAN:
Montana, Bradshaw, Young, Aikman, Favre, Brady, and Peyton Manning
Those LEGENDS are a combined 13-29 on the road
while Flacco has won more than half his road playoff games
