The NFL playoffs are a month away from kicking off, and several teams are on the cusp of becoming Super Bowl contenders if their quarterbacks can perform in the postseason in a similar fashion as Joe Flacco did for the Baltimore Ravens last year.
For much of the regular season, Flacco played like an above-average QB, but when the playoffs began, Flacco's play resembled that of an elite QB. He became "only the second quarterback to throw 11 touchdowns and no interceptions throughout one postseason in NFL history," according to Alex Welch of SBNation.
That performance helped a 10-6 Ravens team win four playoff games, three of which were away from Baltimore.
Here are three players who need a Flacco-like postseason for their teams to make a similar playoff run.
