Last month , Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh told reporters that his players were "pissed" over the playoff loss to the Tennessee Titans that occurred after Harbaugh and NFL MVP Lamar Jackson guided the club to an AFC-best 14-2 regular-season record.
Harbaugh may share that emotion after he hears his quarterback discuss that defeat.
"That's what happened in the playoffs, and we end up losing to the team people had us favored over," the 23-year-old said. "It's any given Sunday. You can't underestimate no team, no opponent and that's what we did."
Jackson added that Tennessee "caught us by surprise" last Jan. when, in front of a home audience expecting a Ravens win and a trip to the AFC Championship, he tossed two interceptions, lost a fumble, and posted a 63.2 rating in Baltimore's 28-12 loss to the Titans.
Despite that setback, the reigning MVP is a BetOnline.ag favorite to retain that title for a second straight season.
