The X-factor for the Ravens in Sunday's AFC Championship Game is quarterback Joe Flacco. At least that's what the AFC North family believes.
In a SportsNation poll, 39 percent of the more than 5,400 voters selected Flacco as the player who will have the most significant impact in the game at New England.
The Ravens are 30-3 (including playoffs) when Flacco posts a passer rating of 95 or better. They are also 12-2 when he throws for at least 270 yards.
Quarterbacks have completed 65.7 percent of their passes against New England in the regular season, throwing 26 touchdowns and 23 interceptions.
Here are the poll results:
