Meet the new Joe Cool

Flacco, not Lewis, man of moment

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is celebrated by his teammates after leading the Ravens to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night in New Orleans. Flacco, the game’s MVP, passed for 287 yards and three touchdowns, one of those a 56-yard pass to Jacoby Jones, who also returned the second-half kickoff 108 yards for a touchdown. Flacco’s performance capped a four-game playoff run during which he threw 11 touchdown passes with no interceptions.

Midway through the third quarter of Sunday night’s Super Bowl XLVII, a Superdome spokesman issued a statement to explain what happened during the surreal 34-minute delay when the lights went out.
