On Wednesday, media pressers were held for the four remaining teams still in the postseason. Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was one of a few to step to the podium and discuss this weekend's AFC Championship.
Flacco gave credit to his offensive line, amongst others, during his presser today. Although the Ravens QB has shined on offense, it's been a team effort on that side of the ball. He alluded to the team having another year of experience behind them, which provides them with the confidence they need.
Of course, the media wanted to know about Ray Lewis and his impact on this year's postseason run. And Flacco did mention that it has been a theme, but he'd rather reflect on how special it was after they've completed their journey. He had a laser focus during the presser, projecting the necessary mentality to compete going forward.

Flacco will have a tough test this Sunday when the Ravens travel to Gillette Stadium to take on the New England Patriots. Once again, he will have to have another special performance if they hope to advance past Tom Brady's Pats.
