Yes and no.

Flacco was hurried 16, 18 times, knocked around 8 times and sacked three times.

A lot of the damage came in the first half when guys like Vickerson, Ayers, Doom, Miller were taking turns knocking him around.

Their whole offense for 3 quarters was built around getting rid of the ball as quickly as possible to avoid the pass rush and it was only late in the 4th they started targetting the deeper passes.

Not much the QB can do when the pocket isn't clean, the run game is cold, and your best WR has a concussion.
