"Absolutely", he said. "I would love it to be here". "All year, you hear something about Joe, 'Oh, boo, take Joe out.' Then, yesterday, it seemed like you were hearing Joe chants".
While some people initially believed Flacco had said that out of frustration of not getting on the field, it turns out that he actually was saying how messed up it was that Ravens fans weren't showing support for their rookie quarterback in the biggest game of his career. With the former Louisville star leading the way, the Ravens went on a tear by combining a time-consuming ground game with the league's top-ranked defense. Jackson is the quarterback of the future and Flacco's time in Baltimore is done. They've been in the conference championship I think seven or eight in a row or whatever, but for most of us it's not that easy to get in. "We didn't perform well".
"He's real fast", Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said about Jackson.
Los Angeles used a 1-yard touchdown run by Melvin Gordon to take a 20-3 lead with 14:44 left. Jackson gained some momentum in the middle of the fourth quarter with two touchdown passes to Michael Crabtree, but it was too little, too late for Baltimore to rally.
Jackson fumbled on Baltimore's opening possession, but picked it up himself.
After the Ravens' second possession, Casey Hayward went to the sideline with newfound confidence. He also had the game-sealing fumble in the final minute of the contest.
But referee Clete Blakeman put a new twist on it, calling them "San Francisco" on the loudspeaker.
Though his pass-catching opportunities dwindled as the season progressed, Ravens wide receiver John Brown called 2018 his most enjoyable year in the NFL.
