What To Look For: Ravens' Wild Card Weekend

THREE’S COMPANY:  In seven career playoff games, Kansas City running back THOMAS JONES has scored five rushing touchdowns, including four with Chicago during the Bears’ 2006 postseason run to Super Bowl XLI.  He also scored a rushing touchdown for the New York Jets in last year’s Wild Card win over Cincinnati.
 
With a rushing touchdown this Sunday against Baltimore, Jones would become the first player in NFL postseason history to score a rushing TD for three different teams.
  
MORE THREES:  Since his 2008 rookie year, Baltimore quarterback JOE FLACCO has led the Ravens to the playoffs in each of his first three seasons.
 
This Sunday against the Chiefs, Flacco will become the fifth quarterback in history to start a playoff game in his first three NFL seasons and the first to do so since BERNIE KOSAR (1985-87).  Pro Football Hall of Famers DAN MARINO (1983-85) and OTTO GRAHAM (1950-52) and PAT HADEN (1976-78) also accomplished the feat.
 
Flacco and JOHN HARBAUGH, whose NFL head coaching career began in Baltimore in 2008, are the first quarterback-head coach duo to begin their NFL careers at the same time and lead a team to the postseason in each of their first three seasons.

INT LEADERS:  Baltimore safety ED REED and Philadelphia cornerback ASANTE SAMUEL are tied for fifth all-time with seven career postseason interceptions.  Both have the opportunity to move up the all-time list on Wild Card Weekend. Reed led the NFL with eight interceptions in 2010, while Samuel led the NFC with seven INTs.
