Harris Ends Flacco's Streak

Posted Sep 6, 2013

Chris Harris picked off Joe Flacco Thursday night and it was the first time Flacco had been picked since the last time Harris did it 210 passes ago.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Entering Thursday night’s game, Ravens quarterback hadn’t thrown a interception since the last time they played the Broncos – nearly 200 passes ago.

The last player to intercept a Flacco pass in a regular season game was Chris Harris and he did so while simultaneously turning the game on its head with a 98-yard touchdown return on the pick.

Harris struck again in Thursday’s 49-27 win when he made a diving pick of Flacco’s attempt to find Brandon Stokley in the second quarter.

"Every time I play the Ravens, I've always had pretty good games against them,” Harris said Thursday night. "Flacco knows me pretty well now. He tries me, so I just try to take advantage of it."

The pick was the first in 210 pass attempts for Flacco and the Broncos took advantage by scoring on the next play to tie up the game.

"I knew that he didn't throw an interception in the playoffs,” he said. “So it's kind of crazy that I was his last one to throw one and now I'm his first one to throw one in the regular season. So that's kind of funny."

Harris has had plenty of experience working against Stokley as he matched up with him in practice when the two were teammates. Now he’s been working against Wes Welker, and Head Coach John Fox said Friday that experience has been beneficial to him.

“The amazing this is that he came to us as a college free agent and competed, made a name for himself, earned some respect from his teammates on special teams,” Fox said. “ We slotted him in there and he played really consistent for us a year ago with some injuries pressed him more into playing time. With Champ (Bailey) down, he got the start and he goes inside on third down which he pretty much does all the time.

“He’s learned a lot from some veteran guys, going against them in practice – Brandon Stokley, a year ago, and Wes Welker in this camp. The guy’s extremely competitive and we’re proud to have him.”
