Flacco completed 36 of 47 passes for 381 yards and threw four touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's tilt with the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

This was Flacco's best performance of the 2016 campaign, as his four touchdowns and 381 passing yards were both season highs. The nine-year veteran had dead-on accuracy as he sliced up Miami's defense, and it resulted in a tremendous 76.6 percent completion rate. Flacco also did a nice job spreading the ball around, with 10 different players hauling in a catch. He was removed midway through the fourth quarter due to the blowout and will look to build on his strong outing versus the Patriots next Monday night.

Flacco completed 25 of 36 passes for 234 yards, one touchdown and one pick in Sunday's win over the Bengals. He added 19 yards on two carries.

EDGE Analysis

Flacco connected with Breshad Perriman on a gorgeous 14-yard fade for a touchdown on Baltimore's opening drive. The team failed to find the end zone again and was left hanging on for dear life in the second half, scoring just one field goal, while Cincinnati attempted to mount a comeback. Two seasons ago, with current Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak running the offense, Flacco looked to be turning the corner - posting or tying career highs in yards, 3,986, and touchdown:interception ratio, 27:12. In his 21 games since, Flacco has thrown just three more touchdowns than interceptions, 25 to 22, and seems to have taken several steps back. Baltimore has tried to replicate Kubiak's system with Marc Trestman and Marty Mornhinweg at the helm and add down-field threats a' la Torrey Smith in Perriman and Mike Wallace, but it hasn't been much use. Since the start of last year, Flacco has more games with multiple picks, eight, than multiple touchdown passes, six.

Flacco completed 22 of 35 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Cowboys. He also gained six yards on his only carry.

EDGE Analysis

Flacco managed to gain yards in bunches but was held out of the end zone until connecting with Steve Smith on a five-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter. He managed to nix the turnover bug that had plagued him over the last three weeks but still has an unimpressive 10:9 TD:INT ratio through 10 games. Now 5-5, Flacco will need to step up his level of play if the Ravens are to move into playoff contention this season, beginning with next week's matchup against the Bengals.

Flacco completed 30 of 41 passes for 296 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in Thursday's 28-7 win over the Browns. He also gained three yards on his sole rush.

EDGE Analysis

Flacco found plenty of success against the Browns' beleaguered secondary, firing a season-high three touchdown passes and hitting a whopping nine different receivers. It was the veteran quarterback's third-highest YPA figure of the season as well (7.22), and the second-best QBR (97.2). The 31-year-old will try to keep the positive momentum going when the Ravens take on the Cowboys in Week 11.

Flacco completed 18 of 30 passes for 241 yards with a touchdown and an interception Sunday against the Steelers. He also rushed three times for 12 yards, and threw a successful two-point conversion in the 21-14 win.

EDGE Analysis

Flacco got 95 of his yards and his touchdown on a slant that speedster Mike Wallace took to the house. That was the veteran quarterback's first touchdown in three weeks, and he has a subpar 6:7 touchdown to interception ratio at the season's halfway point.

Flacco (shoulder) complete 25 of 44 passes for 248 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

So much for the idea that the firing of Marc Trestman as offensive coordinator would jump start Flacco and the Ravens' offense. Flacco was posting a mediocre 80.1 quarterback rating with a five:four touchdown:interception ratio, while completing 63.9 percent of his passes under Trestman. In two games under Marty Mornhinweg, he's regressed to a 64.4 rating while completing 55.4 percent of his passes and a zero:two touchdown:interception ratio. It might be his shoulder or the unpleasant nature of back-to-back games in the Meadowlands - but Flacco is struggling to tread water, or swamp, at the moment no matter who is calling the plays.

Flacco (shoulder) warmed up with the starters in advance of Sunday's game against the Jets in New York, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Practicing in full Friday all but cleared Flacco for game action, but his right shoulder could be a bother as Sunday's game proceeds. While he won't have Steve Smith (ankle) as his disposal in Week 7, Flacco shouldn't have many problems exploiting the Jets pass defense, which has given up 13 touchdowns through the air this season.

Flacco (right shoulder) will be active for Sunday's game against the Jets, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Flacco, who was able to practice in full on Friday, appears to be on track to start Sunday despite dealing with pain in his throwing shoulder throughout the week. The Ravens elected not to activate reserve quarterback David Fales, so they'll stick to the duo of Flacco and backup Ryan Mallett in Week 7. Unfortunately veteran wide receiver Steve Smith (ankle) is expected to be out of the lineup, leaving Mike Wallace, Kamar Aiken (thigh), Breshad Perriman, and tight end Dennis Pitta as the top weapons in the team's aerial attack.

Flacco (right shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Flacco missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, but then returned as a full participant Friday. The upgrade suggests he should be able to play -- a sentiment confirmed by long-time teammate Dennis Pitta, who said Flacco didn't appear to be in any pain at Friday's practice, ESPN.com's reports. Head coach John Harbaugh took a more cautious stance, saying he wants to see how Flacco's arm feels Saturday. Should Flacco ultimately be too sore to play, Ryan Mallett will direct a Baltimore offense that probably won't have No. 1 WR Steve Smith (ankle) or top offensive lineman Marshal Yanda (shoulder).

Flacco (shoulder) returned to practice Friday.

EDGE Analysis

It won't be clear how much work Flacco got in Friday until after the session comes to an end, but his participation alone -- on the heels of two missed practices -- bodes well for his chances of playing in Week 7.
