(on the difficulties of dealing with the loss) "It's always hard losing; It doesn't matter the sport you play. Obviously, with the circumstances being what they are, with us wanting to get to the playoffs and understanding the end goal and everything, it's not easy at all – dealing with losses. This team has a bunch of fighters. We've got a bunch of men that love this game, that love to play for each other. Ultimately, we have to do a better job and find a way to finish games and start pulling away. Obviously, last year, what we were able to do, it's so hard to repeat those different things consistently. It's hard losing, and we're not comfortable with it. We know what we're capable of as a team and as a unit. We understand that we want to be in the playoffs, and we want to get to a Super Bowl, but we've got to do a better job performing on Sundays."
(on their opponents setting the tone when in the past the Ravens have set it) "Yes, and, man, gosh, what that's a testament to, I'm not 100% sure. We ultimately want to be the 'bullies' on both sides of the ball up front and stop the run and run the ball well. Whatever that is, we're going to get back in the lab and figure it out."
(on playing Pittsburgh on a short week) "This is a great team, Pittsburgh, obviously. They're the best team in the NFL right now, so we have to do our part in preparation getting ready for them, their front five or front seven. We've already played them, and like I said, they're a great team, [and] they've got a great front. We've just got to make sure we're preparing, and, most importantly, get our minds right for a physical 'dog fight.'"
(on RB J.K. Dobbins) "I'll have to go back and watch the film, but the runs that I did see and the cuts that I did see … He's an elite talent, he's a great running back, he's got a really, really bright future, and a really, really bright future here in Baltimore. He's capable of a lot of different things, and we have a lot of trust in him. I trust him. As one of the veterans on this team, I've got a lot of trust in him. So, it's what we expect from him."
(on the challenges of playing with different offensive line combinations) "Yes, it is a little different. It's something that we, obviously, practiced with all week, so we were prepared for it. Will Holden and D.J. Fluker – I didn't get a chance, obviously, to watch the film yet – from what I saw, they handled their own really well."
(on if the past few weeks were an opportunity to get the offense in a rhythm, given their opponents' injuries on the defensive side of the ball) "It's hard to pay attention to those different types of things. At the end of the day, it's all about the execution on our side of the ball and making sure that we execute to the best of our abilities."
