Flacco soars in Ravens victory

Joe Flacco endured the discussion that he was a fluke and ignored those who dubbed him Joe Fluke-O. Instead, Flacco got right down to work in proving his cynics wrong, hitting three different receivers for three touchdowns in the first half of Super Bowl XLVII. He said before the start of the season that he was the best quarterback in the NFL -- he ended the season feeling the same way but with the Lombardi Trophy in one hand and the game MVP trophy in the other.

The speedy Jacoby Jones did his part in helping secure a win for the Ravens. Jones scored on a 65-yard pass reception and a 108-yard kickoff return, becoming the fifth player in league history to see the end zone on a play from scrimmage and a kick return in the same playoff game. Phil Mickelson didn't want it to be an all-football top three, so he lit up the golf greens on his way to a near-record-setting win at the Phoenix Open.
