Joe Flacco throws 5 interceptions in Ravens' 23-20 loss to Bills

Flacco set a career high he never wanted to set.

So much for all that elite talk.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had one of the worst games of his professional career against the Buffalo Bills in Week 4, throwing for five interceptions in a 23-20 loss.

Flacco completed 25 of his 50 passing attempts for 347 yards and two touchdowns, but the interceptions buried the Ravens. The most crucial pick came with under a minute to play. Flacco was intercepted by Bills rookie linebacker Kiko Alonso for the second time in the game, ending any chance of a Baltimore comeback.

The five interceptions were a career high for Flacco, and he is now only five interceptions away from matching his single-season career high.

The Ravens fell to 2-2 on the season after the loss, but luckily the rest of the division hasn't taken advantage of Baltimore's slow start. Still, Flacco's play hasn't been a bright spot, especially after the way he played during the team's Super Bowl run. He needs to start earning his massive contract extension.
