The Ravens came from behind twice in their AFC Divisional Round game against the Denver Broncos on Saturday, and rallied for a double-overtime victory to earn their spot in the AFC Championship Game.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco connected with Jacoby Jones for a 70-yard touchdown pass to tie the game with just :31 second left in regulation, and has heard nothing but praise since — a big change for the often under-appreciated QB.

Gresh & Zo opened Tuesday’s show talking about Flacco, with Zolak disageeing with all the criticism he gets from the local and national media. Zo says to watch out for Baltimore’s outside passing game come Sunday in Gillette.

“I’m not saying I’m scared, but this is a perimeter passing game that can give you fits,” said Zolak. “And, people around here and nationally really don’t believe it because all they talk about is [Terrell] Suggs, Ed Reed, Ray Lewis — and you should.”

“I’m telling you, be ready for Joe Flacco on Sunday folks because there’s a lot of people who aren’t giving this guy the credit that I think he deserves,” said Zo.

Do you agree with Zolak? Does Flacco deserve more credit for Baltimore’s success this season?
