OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - A difficult early-season schedule has made it easier for the Baltimore Ravens to look to their next challenge rather than look back at Sunday's 24-23 defeat in Philadelphia.
Coming off a near-flawless performance in a season-opening 44-13 rout of AFC North rival Cincinnati, Baltimore (1-1) gave up 486 yards in offense, failed to take advantage of four turnovers and virtually abandoned its running game in the second half.
All that is lamentable, yet it won't do the Ravens any good to dwell on those negatives because next up is a Sunday night duel with New England (1-1). It's a rematch of last season's AFC title game, won by the Patriots 23-20.
Coach John Harbaugh hopes the Ravens can learn from the loss in Philadelphia, "and come back swinging next week."
