Ravens react to Steve Smith's pass interference penalty

Observed and heard in the locker room after the Baltimore Ravens' 27-24 loss at the Cincinnati Bengals:

Nearly everyone on the Ravens was asked about the offensive pass interference penalty on wide receiver Steve Smith. Instead of a go-ahead 80-yard touchdown, the Ravens were backed up to their own 10-yard line with 32 seconds remaining.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh: "I'm not allowed to answer the question."

Wide receiver Steve Smith: "Things happen. Ultimately, you hope you don't allow plays like that to dictate the determination of a win or loss. So, it happens. I'm not disappointed, not upset, just exhausted and looking forward to the opportunity to play next week."

Quarterback Joe Flacco: "I didn't see anything. It just looked like two guys backpedalling and a guy came down with it. I couldn't really see much more than that."

Linebacker Terrell Suggs: "I got to admit, offensive pass interference, that's a pretty ballsy call considering the situation. But we're over it."
