NBC analysts surprised by Ravens' performance

The

Ravens

' 26-13 loss to the

Tennessee Titans

Sunday caught a lot of observers by surprise. Count two member of NBC's Football Night in America among that group.

A week after being showered with praise for their 35=7 convincing victory over the

Pittsburgh Steelers

, the Ravens can expect a heap of questions and criticism -- beginning with comments from former

New England Patriots

safety

Rodney Harrison

.

"I didn't expect a veteran team like Baltimore to come out and have that emotional and mental letdown," Harrison said. "They didn't create any sacks on defense, just played absolutely soft."

Former

Indianapolis Colts

coach Tony Dungy said the offensive line wilted under the pressure of the Titans' 4-3 alignment.

"Their offensive line really got dominated," Dungy said. "They handled Pittsburgh, but up front, this was a different type of defense. Tennessee has athletic defensive linemen and they chased [quarterback]

Joe Flacco

around all day."
