The Ravens had a pair of penalties on returns in their 23-20 overtime loss to the New England Patriots Sunday.
A holding call on rookie Ed Dickson negated much of a 21-yard kick return by Jalen Parmele. But perhaps the most significant penalty occurred when Cary Williams was flagged for an illegal block in the back on a Chris Carr punt return in overtime.
So instead of first down-and-10 from the Ravens' 27-yard line, the offense began at the 17.
After the game, Williams shouldered blame for the penalty.
"There's no explanation," he said. "It is what it is. The call was made. Right now, that's a call that should've been made. I did get him in the back. It was a bang-bang play. It's something that I regret. But it's a learning experience that I will definitely learn from and do better on in the future. … It's one of those plays I messed up, and I take full responsibility for it."
