Terrence Cody did not register a tackle in the Ravens' 31-24 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Saturday's AFC Divisional playoff game, but the rookie nose tackle may be remembered more for a grab that officials saw.

With the Steelers threatening to score on second down-and goal from the Ravens' 4-yard line, the defense appeared to stuff running back Rashard Mendenhall for a 1-yard gain.

But Cody was whistled for holding center Maurkice Pouncey – a call that puzzled Cody."I thought I was playing the double team, and the play was going that way, and the double team was going there," he said. "So I was holding my point. Then the flag came, and I didn't know it was on me at first until after the call."

The penalty gave Pittsburgh a fresh set of downs at the 1, and running back Rashard Mendenhall scored on a 2-yard touchdown run three plays later for the final score.

Cody was disheartened by the call.

"I was disappointed because we had stopped them behind the line and we had a tackle for a loss and pushed them back," he said. "I think it brought up third down and just gave them a first down."
