Flacco named Super Bowl MVP


NEW ORLEANS — Capping a pretty perfect post-season, Joe Flacco completed 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards and three first-half touchdowns Sunday to earn Super Bowl MVP honours for leading the Baltimore Ravens to a 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Flacco became only the sixth quarterback in 47 Super Bowls to throw for three scores in a first half, connecting with Anquan Boldin for 13 yards, Dennis Pitta for 1, and Jacoby Jones for 56.

And the unassuming guy who played his college football at Delaware finished Baltimore’s four-game run to the title with 11 TD passes and zero interceptions. It was an impressive run that included road victories against two of the game’s best QBs, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.
