Albert McClellan had his best game in his first season as a starter, but he laments what could've been.
Late in the third quarter, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was faced with second-and-7 at the Ravens' 11-yard line.
Vick scrambled and threw a pass to Brent Celek that was broken up by McClellan.
Unfortunately for McClellan, he should've done more.
"I dropped an interception," he said of a ball that hit him in both hands. "I know I missed a few (assignments). I could've done better. He threw it in there so quick, I really didn't even see it."
The Eagles would score on a 23-yard field goal, which appeared to be a small victory for a defense that had forced four turnovers, three coming in their own territory. The Eagles went on to win 24-23, and an interception there would've made the difference.
That McClellan was in perfect coverage on Celek, however, was a rarity Sunday. Coach John Harbaugh wasn't pleased with his defense's overall play in that area. Celek got loose for eight catches and a career-high 157 yards.
The Ravens face the New England Patriots on Sunday. They have tight end Ron Gronkowski, who had an NFL-record 1,327 yards and 17 touchdowns on 90 catches last season.
"Definitely, that has to be addressed," Harbaugh said. "It wasn't so much that the tight end, per se, got free. It was more issues with our coverage with the way we handled some of our basic coverages. ...
"We got skewed a little bit. We got skewed by chasing some routes. We got skewed by chasing Michael Vick scrambling at times. It created imbalances in our coverage, and they took advantage of that with their tight end."
