Ravens last in NFL in turnover differential

Through two weeks (not including the Monday night game between the Saints and 49ers), the Ravens are dead last in the NFL in turnover differential with a minus-six differential. They somehow edge out the Titans (minus-five), who committed seven turnovers Sunday in a loss to the Steelers.

The Ravens have turned the ball over seven times. Joe Flacco, who wasn't a turnover machine in his first two seasons, has coughed up the ball a Cutleresque six times (five interceptions and one fumble).

"Any pick is bad. Any interception is bad," Flacco said after throwing four interceptions in Sunday's 15-10 loss to the Bengals. "You don't feel good about them."

Meanwhile, as well as the Ravens have played defensively so far -- they are No. 2 in total defense -- they have forced just one turnover, and that came when Jets running back Shonn Greene ran into his own lineman and fumbled.

"You can't win in this league [committing turnovers], and that's been proven time and time again," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Sunday. "Minus-four is not going to get it done. We did it with minus-two last week, but we have to get that straightened out fast."
