Joe Flacco downplayed the notion that his health is the root cause of his struggles.
Still, it’s hard not to notice his body language and his decreased mobility.
“I’m as close to 100 percent as I can be,” Flacco said. “I’ve got bruises and stuff like that, but it’s not affecting me out on the field. I didn’t feel anything out on Monday night.
“I stood back there and felt great physically. I felt like I was able to move around good, and I’ll continue to feel that way as long as our guys continue to do what they’re doing.”
For the season, Flacco has completed 63.3 percent of his throws for 2,881 yards, 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions for an 84.6 passer rating.
Flacco acknowledged that defenses are disguising coverage schemes and making adjustments.
