The wife of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco gave birth to the couple's second son at noon ET Sunday, the team tweeted.

That did not prevent Flacco from playing Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns an hour later.

After welcoming his new son, Flacco started for Baltimore, which kicked off at 1 p.m. ET.
