OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - The Baltimore Ravens have identified the long list of problems that have contributed to their poor start.

Their task now is correct those flaws before it's too late to salvage a difficult season for the defending Super Bowl champions.

After losing two of their last three games - including Sunday's 19-17 defeat at home against Green Bay - the Ravens are a .500 team and trailing Cincinnati in the AFC North. Their running game is ineffective, they're having trouble protecting quarterback Joe Flacco, they're starting slowly in games and struggling on first and second downs.

Coach John Harbaugh acknowledged all this Monday.

Harbaugh says, "There are plenty of specific things that we need to do differently, or we need to do better."

Baltimore (3-3) faces division rival Pittsburgh this Sunday.
