Ravens defensive backs had 'a long night' in season-opening loss to Broncos

'We didn't expect to open the season and play this bad,' safety Huff says of 49-27 defeat

Huff and Ihedigbo represent a new safety tandem while cornerback Lardarius Webb is back after missing most of last season with a knee injury. Webb was a bright spot on Thursday, making several plays on the ball.

"We just had a long night," Webb said. "It's going to make us better in the long run. Yeah, it was very humbling, but great quarterback, great weapons, great offense — things like this can happen if you're not on point."

Still, the Ravens' defenders say that they are undeterred.

"At the end of the day, it's still the beginning of the season. You let your body rest, you watch tape, you figure out the things that you did poorly and you correct it. It is all correctable things," Ihedigbo said. "It's not like guys didn't know what was going on out there. It all comes back to our execution on defense and taking that pressure of playing Ravens football. We need to play with that chip on our shoulder."
