Flacco this year tied himself with Tom Brady, Donovan McNabb, Brett Favre, Troy Aikman, and Ken Stabler as the only quarterbacks to win a play-off game in each of 5 consecutive seasons.
Nobody has ever won one in each of 6 consecutive seasons, so if Flacco wins another play-off game next year, he is truly into uncharted territory for a quarterback.
Out of all active quarterbacks, only Joe Flacco and Tom Brady have ever had a better streak than 3 consecutive seasons with a post-season win.
There have been 15 total occurrences among ALL active quarterbacks of winning a play-off game in back to back seasons. 5 of those occurrences belong to Tom Brady (2003-2007 represents 4 of them, and 2011-2012 represents the fifth), and Joe Flacco has 4 of them (2008-2012), so 60% of all cases are represented by Brady and Flacco.
The others are Matt Hasselbeck (2005-2007), who is the only other active player to have more than 1 occurrence of back-to-back seasons with a play-off win (2 times for him), and then one each for Mark Sanchez (2009-2010), Philip Rivers (2007-2008), Ben Roethlisberger (2004-2005, which is his rookie & second season, hasn't done it since), and Peyton Manning (2003-2004).
Drew Brees, Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan, etc. have all never had back-to-back seasons with a post-season win.
Since Joe Flacco entered the league, it's happened only 6 times, 4 of which are Flacco, one is Brady, and one is Sanchez.
