Following his team's 12-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, John Harbaugh was in no mood to mince words about the Ravens' offensive performance.
"It’s about as bad as you can play on offense," Harbaugh said. "I don’t know if you could play any worse than that until that one [late] drive. We’ve got to take a look at it and figure it out, and we have to fix it because have to come back and play on Sunday. It’s one loss. As bad as it was, it’s one loss.”
The Ravens were held to 16 yards in the first half, a franchise low. They didn't get their first first down until Ray Rice's 12-yard run with 5:29 left in the third quarter. And they appeared to be headed for their first shutout since Week Two of the 2002 season until quarterback Joe Flacco hit Anquan Boldin with a 5-yard touchdown pass with 2:02 left in the game.
“If we don’t get consistency on offense, we’re not going anywhere," Harbaugh said. "We can’t play the way we played tonight on offense and expect to accomplish what we need. We all know it. We got our butts handed to us from that sense. We’ll get back to work, just like we always do.”
Flacco went 21-of-38 for 137 yards, one touchdown and one interception. That interception was by Drew Coleman with 1:38 to play, which sealed the game.
“It’s a long football season and these are all great teams we’re playing each week. You have to play well," Flacco said. "You have to do things right and you have to execute. We don’t need a wakeup call. We’re really not a team that needs that. It’s tough to explain, but we have a great group of guys in there. We didn’t play well tonight, but we’re going to rebound like we always do."
