The microphones stood ready. The cameras and reporters were in their places. It was the first day of the NFC championship game media blitz at Redskin Park, and offensive tackle Joe Jacoby was there to absorb it all.

We all laughed when Baltimore's Joe Flacco called himself the best quarterback in the NFL during the off-season. Well, who's laughing now? Certainly not the Denver Broncos, who happen to have the guy many people think really is the best quarterback in the NFL, Peyton Manning, on their roster. That's because the Ravens knocked the Broncos out of the playoffs with a 38-35 double overtime victory Saturday, and it was all made possible by a desperation pass from Flacco to Jacoby Jones on a third-down play with just 41 seconds left in regulation.

Washington center Jeff Bostic, a 13-year veteran, has been put on injured reserve and will miss between 10 and 12 weeks because of a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder. He will have surgery Saturday. In his place, left guard Raleigh McKenzie will fill in at center. McKenzie's spot will be taken by Joe Jacoby, who moves from right tackle. Backup Ed Simmons takes Jacoby's spot.
