Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) – Joe Flacco played into the third quarter and passed for 229 yards and two touchdowns on 21-of-34 efficiency, pacing the Ravens over the Giants, 24-10, in preseason action.
Flacco was also picked off once and threw TDs to Anquan Boldin and Todd Heap in the second quarter to build an early lead following Billy Cundiff’s 25-yard field goal midway through the opening frame.
Heap caught six passes for 69 yards, while Boldin hauled in four for 52 for Baltimore, winners of seven consecutive warm-up games over the past two years.
Eli Manning, who missed a game as a result of having stitches in his forehead, completed just 9-of-18 passes for 63 yards with an interception, leading the Giants’ first-team offense to just three points — Lawrence Tynes’ 42-yard field goal at the halftime buzzer.
Brandon Jacobs had a team-high 41 yards on six carries in defeat.
Baltimore third-stringer Troy Smith threw an 11-yard TD to Marcus Smith in the fourth quarter, and Rhett Bomar finally got New York into the end zone with a one-yard toss to Victor Cruz under the two-minute warning.
