Rex Ryan says defense has to share blame

In his weekly session with the media, defensive coordinator Rex Ryan talked about how the defense has to take a share of the blame for Monday night’s 38-7 loss at Pittsburgh. The Ravens tied a team record by giving up five touchdown passes.

Before a question was asked, Ryan gave this opening statement:

“On defense, we got to hold up our end of the bargain. No matter if it’s long field, short field or whatever, we can’t give up scores. We got to play a lot better. I was proud of the way that we finished that game. There is plenty of fight in this group. That’s encouraging.

“That’s what this team is all about. That’s why I think as we move forward into the second half of the season, you’re going to see how the closeness of this football team affects the win-loss total. We expect to make a great run at it, and we’re that kind of team to get it done.”
