Rob Carr/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) — The Baltimore Ravens will have the spotlight to themselves after the Orioles were knocked out of the ALCS by the Royals on Wednesday.
Fresh off throwing five touchdown passes, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is making sure his team does everything they can to prepare the right way after blowing out the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday.
Flacco said the biggest challenge the team will face after an easy win is “coming in here and reminding yourself and everybody to put the work in. I think that comes naturally for us, it’s something we’re good at doing, once you get out there on Sunday everything takes care of itself.”
Concerning Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, Flacco said: “We were in the same class. As long as you’re still talking about us, we’re somewhat relevant, so I guess that’s a good thing. It’s nice to see that we are still relevant.”
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh knows the Falcons will be hungry for a win after losing three in a row.
“Atlanta’s good. They’re going to be on turf, so they’re going to be fast,” Harbaugh said. “They’ve got big, fast receivers. They’ve got fast running backs, and they got a quarterback that drives the whole thing. That’s an explosive football team, and we’ve got to be ready for them.”
The Ravens will host the Atlanta Falcons, who are 0-3 on the road this season.
