Flacco on Reed: 'Not a big deal'

OWINGS MILLS, MD -- Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco spoke to the media on Wednesday and was asked for his reaction to comments made by teammate Ed Reed to SiriusXM NFL Radio. Reed said he felt Flacco was 'rattled' by the defense of the Houston Texans in last Sunday's 20-13 Baltimore win.

"I talked to Ed about it, it was a little funny, I was kind of caught off guard, but it is what it is. We talked about it and it's not really that big a deal," said Flacco, who was sacked five times by the Texans in a game that saw the Ravens collect just 227 yards of offense.

Flacco -- who seemed defensive at times during his seven-minute session with the media -- was asked if he feels a Super Bowl victory would silence his critics.

"I don't care, I'll have a ring and we'll be holding a trophy," Flacco said. "The perception won't change but it doesn't really matter."

Brady not at Patriots practice

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady was the only player not spotted at Patriots practice on Wednesday as the team began its on-field preparations for the AFC Championship against the Ravens Sunday at Gillette Stadium. 

Brady was routinely given Wednesday off several times over the course of the last half of the season, including twice in the last two weeks to help in treatment of his injured left shoulder. 

The Patriots practiced in sweats and shells in the bitter cold and wind Wednesday, good preparation for Sunday's expected gametime temperatures in the low 30s when the Patriots and Ravens kickoff at 3 p.m. ET. You can catch Sunday's game on Sportsradio WEEI 93.7.

Ravens' Suggs: 'There's no beef' with Brady

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs has had harsh words for Tom Brady in years past, but on Wednesday he played down their rivalry in the lead-up to Sunday's AFC championship game. He even joked that he would take up Brady on his offer of Uggs -- "I heard they are comfortable," he said -- and would send some of his "Ball So Hard University" shirts in exchange.

"There's no beef," Suggs said, according to reports out of Baltimore. "You grow and mature. I'm not the same guy I was in '09. I'm 20 pounds lighter. There's no beef."

Added Suggs: "It's pretty much over. I respect him."
