BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Ravens are 3-0 for the third time in franchise history and first time since 2009.
The Ravens are among five teams that remain undefeated in the 2016 season. The Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos and New England Patriots are all 3-0 going into Week 4.
During the game on Sunday, Joe Flacco broke his own franchise record for consecutive completions by connecting on 21 straight. Flacco misfired on four of his first five throws, but then reeled off 21 in a row. The streak ended on Mike Wallace’s drop in the end zone early in the third quarter.
Flacco’s previous record was 14 straight set in 2009.
Now you tell me Joe Flacco isn’t elite.
The Ravens will try to stay undefeated at home next week against Oakland (2-1), which will travel cross-country for a 1 p.m. start at M & T Bank Stadium.
