Flacco Wins Super Bowl XLVII MVP

Christian Petersen

From NFL Communications: Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was voted the winner of the Pete Rozelle Trophy, awarded to the Super Bowl XLVII Most Valuable Player.

The award is chosen by a panel of 16 members of the Pro Football Writers Association of America, selected members of the electronic broadcast media and interactively through the National Football League’s official website, NFL.com. Flacco collected 14 votes of the possible 20 cast in the MVP voting process.

Flacco completed 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions for a passer rating of 124.2. Flacco led the Ravens to a fast start by becoming the sixth player in NFL history to throw three or more touchdown passes in the first half of a Super Bowl game.

Flacco, in his fifth season, led the Ravens to a 7-0 lead on their first possession of the game when he orchestrated a six-play, 51-yard drive that culminated with a 13-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Anquan Boldin.

His second and third touchdown passes of the first half came in the second quarter. On Baltimore’s first scoring drive of the second quarter, Flacco completed all four of his passes for 45 yards, including a one-yard scoring pass to tight end Dennis Pitta.

Flacco’s third and final touchdown pass was a game-long 56-yard pass to wide receiver Jacoby Jones to put the Ravens ahead, 21-3. In the first half, Flacco completed 13 of 20 passes for 192 yards and three touchdowns.

Flacco finished the 2012 playoffs with 11 touchdown passes, tying Joe Montana (1989) and Kurt Warner (2008) for the most by any player in a single postseason.
