Lights go out on Ravens during postgame interview

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- The lights went out on the Baltimore Ravens again Sunday, this time in their postgame interview room.

Coach John Harbaugh was talking about his team's 26-23 victory at Miami when quarterback Joe Flacco -- waiting to speak next -- leaned against a switch and inadvertently turned the lights off.

"I was thinking, `deja vu all over again," Harbaugh said to laughter.

The lights quickly came back on, but a short time later they went out again -- this time because linebacker Terrell Suggs had leaned against the same switch.

"Suggs got us that time," a grinning Harbaugh said. "It wasn't the commissioner."

A partial blackout in the Super Bowl last season delayed the Ravens' victory over San Francisco, leading to some conspiracy theories about whether the NFL wanted to help the 49ers rally.
