Baltimore Ravens Notes, Quotes 2008-10-07
--Coach John Harbaugh defended his decision to send in K Matt Stover to attempt a 45-yard field goal rather than run an offensive play with 14 seconds left in the second quarter and the score tied at 3.


Stover's kick sailed wide right, but Harbaugh said the decision was "easy."

"If you're sitting there with 14 seconds (left), so many things can happen that aren't good that take you out of field-goal range," he said. "You've got the possibility of a sack. You've got the possibility of a completion inbounds, and if the clock runs out, we've got no timeouts. So the chances of scoring a touchdown are minimal. And you have to score a touchdown to improve your position. So we've got a pretty sure three, we think. We kick the field goal. To me, that's a no-brainer."

--Harbaugh successfully challenged an initial ruling that David Thornton had maintained possession of an apparent interception of rookie QB Joe Flacco late in the first quarter. Harbaugh is 2-for-2 on challenges.

--DT Justin Bannan recorded his first career interception when he caught a pass batted by Haloti Ngata in the first quarter. "It happened so fast," Bannan said. "Before I knew it, I had a ball in my hand. ... It's always good to get a present like that."

--CB Frank Walker, filling in for Fabian Washington, appeared to have recorded his first interception as a Raven late in the third quarter, but Walker was whistled for holding Titans WR Chris Davis. "All I did was jam him, and I was within 5 yards," Walker said. "But the ref made the call. All I could do was keep playing ball."
