The Ravens were ready to put Pittsburgh behind them late Sunday night. They botched their chance to get control of the AFC North and already were looking toward a Monday night date in Houston next week.
The operative mode was moving on.
"We have a lot of veterans on this team," cornerback Chris Carr said. "You can't gloat after a win, and you can't go in the tank and think your season's ruined after a loss. A lot of people tonight are going to be thinking about it. People will probably lose sleep over this one. But we have a while until we play on Monday night [against the Texans]. By the time people wake up on Tuesday, they're going to be fine and they're going to be over it. They'll be watching film on our next opponents, the Texans. We'll be fine."
Terrell Suggs expressed similar sentiments.
"We're going to move on because if we let this get to us, not only can we not [win] the division, but we can still slip further down the line and not make the playoffs at all," Suggs said. "But we're going to move on."
