Rob Carr/Getty Images(OWINGS MILLS, MD) –If Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was bothered by teammate Ed Reed’s critical comments of him, he is being careful not to talk about it.

Baltimore safety Ed Reed made comments after the Ravens victory over the Texans saying that Flacco seemed rattled by Houston’s defense, and that he didn’t have a hold on the offense.

“I talked to Ed about it,” said Flacco. “It was a little funny to me, a little caught off guard, but it is what it is. We talked about it. It’s not really that big of a deal.”

Reed later said it was a motivational ploy.

Despite the criticism, Flacco has a 5-3 record as a starter in the playoffs.
