Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco got back from Pittsburgh last night, went out with a couple friends and chatted about one of his career highlights while watching Sunday Night Football.

He woke up this morning and watched his game-winning touchdown pass once in offensive meetings.

That was the end of it.

By late Monday afternoon, Flacco and Head Coach John Harbaugh proclaimed they had already moved on from Sunday’s triumph in Pittsburgh – their first win there since coming together in Baltimore in 2008.

Flacco has dealt with moving on from heartbreaking performances already this year. Now he’s showing his propensity to move on from the good ones too.

“It was one of the greatest wins we’ve had since I’ve been here,” Flacco said. “But honestly, we’ve already moved on. … I’m not lying to you, sitting here saying stuff that sounds right. We honestly have moved on. We’re getting ready for Denver.”

The Ravens are 3-1 after what could be considered the most difficult quarter of their schedule. They faced the New York Jets (3-1), Cincinnati Bengals (2-2) and Pittsburgh Steelers (3-1) all on the road.

“To start at 3-1 is definitely a step in the right direction and a good start for us,” Flacco said.

While Harbaugh of course said he’d like to be perfect, he’s pleased with his team’s current standing atop the AFC North.

The Ravens will play seven of their final 12 games at home, including home games against chief division rivals Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. And they’ve showed they can win in tough road environments.

“I think we’re a very composed team right now,” Harbaugh said. “I think we’re a very smart team right now and we want to keep building on that.”

Flacco has shown his ability to keep an even keel. He bounced back from a four-interception performance against the Bengals to have one of his best statistical games against the Browns, then one of his career-defining games against the Steelers.

Next up is Denver, who is also coming off an emotional win in Tennessee.

“I think sometimes getting over the interceptions can be harder – and depending on what kind of team you have – getting over the victory can be harder,” Flacco said.

“But, I think we have the right kind of team that we’re just going to work to get better, and we still have a lot of areas to improve and score more points.”
