At DallasCowboys.com, I took a look at the Ravens’ offensive attack:

19.1: Percentage of Flacco’s passes that have traveled 20 or more yards in the air.

With Flacco at the helm, the Ravens have consistently been among the league-leaders in deep passing attempts. This year, only Jay Cutler has thrown deep passes more frequently than Flacco. The Ravens quarterback has totaled 11.59 yards per attempt (YPA), four touchdowns and no picks on deep passes.

137.5: Flacco’s passer rating when throwing to wide receiver Torrey Smith.

One of the reasons Flacco can air it out is that second-year receiver Torrey Smith is such a dynamic big-play threat. No quarterback has a higher passer rating when throwing to any receiver than Flacco to Smith. The duo is posting 12.65 YPA.

54.8: Percentage of Smith’s targets that are at least 20 yards downfield.

Over half of Smith’s targets in 2012 have come on deep passes, which is remarkable. Smith has five more deep targets (17) than any other player in the NFL. In comparison, Dez BryantMiles Austinand Kevin Ogletree have only 15 deep targets combined.
