Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh arrived for work in a good mood Tuesday morning following the San Francisco 49ers' victory Monday night over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
And with good reason: The Ravens moved back into first place with the Steelers' loss.
''He was coming in: `Did you see that game? Who won?''' quarterback Joe Flacco said about Harbaugh. ''OK, we all know who won the game. We know you're way more excited now than you were two days ago. You could definitely tell he was excited, and we should be. We're obviously in a better position because of what happened.''
The 49ers' win over the Ravens' AFC North rival put the Ravens (10-4) back in first place in the AFC North and into the second seed in the playoff standings.
The Ravens' embarrassing 34-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday night knocked them out of first place in the division for a day, and they fell from the top-seeded team in the AFC to fifth. Now, they're second behind the New England Patriots.
