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.”

  Bills coach Sean McDermott won’t commit to starting quarterback after blowout loss to Ravens Nathan Peterman started under center for Buffalo in its season opener against the Ravens on Sunday but struggled mightily. He completed just five of his 18 passes for 24 yards and threw two interceptions in the Bills’ 47-3 loss.Peterman was replaced in the third quarter by rookie Josh Allen, who wasn’t much better (6-of-15, 74 yards).McDermott said he would have to “look at the tape” before deciding who his starter will be when the Bills face the Chargers next week."I make decisions for the football team and that includes the quarterback position," McDermott said (via The Buffalo News).

Flacco finished the game 32-of-55 passing for 376 yards with two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions. He said he wasn’t “super sharp” early in the game, which led to the big deficit.

“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.
