Joe Flacco tosses five touchdowns in blowout win

Joe Flacco was unstoppable early in Baltimore's game against Tampa Bay.

By the 13:57 mark of the second quarter, Flacco had thrown for five touchdowns in what would wind up being a 48-17 win. In total, he completed 21 of 29 passes for 306 yards. Two touchdowns went to Torrey Smith, one went to Steve Smith, one went to Kamar Aiken and another went to Michael Campanaro.

His five touchdowns tied a franchise record of single-game scoring tosses. The only other Ravens quarterback to achieve this mark was Tony Banks in a 2000 win over Jacksonville.

The Ravens had their way with the Bucs on both sides of the ball. The defense sacked Bucs quarterback Mike Glennon five times and hit him repeatedly.

It was a huge bounce-back game for Flacco, who struggled a week ago against the Colts in a loss. When Flacco and the offense plays the way they did today, they're tough to slow down.
