OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco gets a second chance to beat the Denver Broncos after failing to do so last month.

The most telling image of Baltimore’s game against the Broncos on Dec. 16 was Flacco lying flat on his stomach near the goal line after his futile pursuit of cornerback Chris Harris.

Harris intercepted a Flacco pass and went 96 yards for a score, the turning point in Denver’s 34-17 win.

In spite of that lopsided defeat, the Ravens won the AFC North title and advanced to the second round of the playoffs by defeating Indianapolis 24-9 last weekend. That set up Flacco and Baltimore (11-6) for another shot at the Broncos (13-3) on Saturday.

Flacco says his interception last month against Denver won’t weigh on his mind.
