Joe Flacco doesn’t want the Ravens to get down on themselves.

The Bengals jumped out to a 21-point first-half lead against Baltimore on Thursday and eventually came away with a 34-23 victory. Flacco discussed the loss with reporters after the game.

“We battled,” Flacco said (via Cincinnati.com). “We had a chance to win a football game. When you get down like that, that’s all you can ask.

“You have to keep your head up and believe what your building around here. It wasn’t pretty, and we didn’t come out with a win, but it’s a long season. We have to keep our heads up and be positive.”

“When you do that in somebody else’s territory on a Thursday night you better be ready to bounce back quick,” Flacco said. “We just didn’t do it quick enough.”

The Ravens registered a blowout 47-3 win over the Bengals in Week 1. Flacco threw three touchdown passes in that game.
