Joe Flacco not worrying about interception total in 2013 season

Joe Flacco has thrown 19 interceptions this season, a season worst for him in six years. - Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Flacco, who had never thrown more than 12 interceptions in a season, has 19 through 15 games.

In previous seasons, Joe Flacco was a solid decision-maker throwing the football.

The most interceptions he'd thrown in a single-season was 12, something he'd done in 2008, 2009 and 2011. In 2010 and 2012, Flacco's interception total was limited to 10.

This year has seen a huge spike, with Flacco throwing 19 interceptions to just 18 touchdowns. Passes have been forced at times and Flacco hasn't had the kind of consistency he hoped for after throwing 11 touchdowns to zero interceptions in the 2012 playoffs.

But what can Flacco do at this point? It's Week 17 and the Ravens need a win and either a San Diego or Miami loss to get in the postseason. Thinking back on the interceptions won't do him any favors.

All Flacco can do is move forward and hope the trend stops in the final week of the regular season, as well as the playoffs if Baltimore is fortunate enough to get in.

"I don't like throwing interceptions," Flacco told reporters earlier this week. "But, at this point, it is what it is. I can't do anything about the ones I've thrown. I've just got to go out there and play this game, make sure we get a win and don't worry about really anything else. You guys know, it's never good to throw interceptions and put your team in a bad position. Like I said, if I dwell on that, then I'm not going to give ourselves a good chance to win in this game right here. So, that's all I've got to worry about."
