Led by Joe Flacco, the Baltimore Ravens are heading to the Super Bowl. Baltimore's running game was somewhat effective in the 28-13 win over the New England Patriots on Sunday, but the extra week of rest will do Ray Rice, Bernard Pierce and Vonta Leach a lot of good going forward as Rice has logged a lot of touches of late and Pierce and Leach are battling injuries. However, Flacco and the Ravens' passing game is why they are advancing to face the San Francisco 49ers on Feb. 3. Can that excellence in the passing game continue against San Francisco?
