Browns QB Joe Flacco Sends Big Message After Loss

Joe Flacco’s comeback story didn’t quite have the fairy-tale ending he had hoped for. In Saturday’s first-round playoff game against the Houston Texans, the Cleveland Browns quarterback threw two costly interceptions that were returned for touchdowns, contributing to their 45-14 loss.

While Flacco’s dreams of winning a second Super Bowl title were dashed, he still cherished the opportunity to lead the Browns on a late-season surge.

“I was so fortunate to become part of this team — it’s a special group. To be given a chance to do this with those guys, I’m super grateful for it.”

Flacco’s journey in 2023 was a rollercoaster ride. He spent most of the year away from the field before joining Cleveland’s practice squad in late November. In just five games, he managed to accumulate 1,616 passing yards and 13 touchdowns, sparking a four-game winning streak that secured the Browns their second playoff appearance in the last two decades.

The former Baltimore Ravens star continued to impress, completing 34 of 46 passes for 307 yards in the game at NRG Stadium, marking his fifth consecutive game with over 300 passing yards. However, the turning point came during the third quarter when the Texans intercepted Flacco’s passes on consecutive drives, returning them for touchdowns.

Despite the disappointing ending, Flacco’s time in Cleveland marked a remarkable resurgence in his career. His success could open doors for him in the upcoming offseason.

Joe Flacco expressed his desire to continue playing in 2024, but with Deshaun Watson returning, he might have to explore other opportunities to find a starting role elsewhere.
