Quarterback Joe Flacco was the game’s MVP as he had an “elite” performance, completing 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards with three touchdowns to no interceptions.
Caught up in the celebration of having just led the Ravens to their second Super Bowl victory in franchise history, Flacco, 28, dropped an F-bomb and CBS had a camera nearby to catch it and air it live.
Marshal Yanda to Flacco: ”Holy s—, huh?”
Flacco to Yanda: “F—— awesome!”

It’s safe to assume the two players were discussing the nature of the Ravens’ nail-biting victory and the notion of being crowned Super Bowl champions. But then again, the 6-6, 245-pound quarterback just as easily could have been referring to his impending leverage in offseason contract negotiations.
Scheduled to become a restricted free agent this March, Flacco finished the postseason with a 57.9 completion rate, firing on 73 of 126 passes for 1,140 yards and 11 touchdowns to no interceptions in wins over the Indianapolis Colts, Denver Broncos, New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers.
He’s expected to break the bank with a new contract before the start of the 2013 NFL season.
