BALTIMORE (AP) - CBS apologized to the Ravens after Sunday's 21-7 victory over Tennessee for airing comments made in the locker room by coach John Harbaugh.

"The comments made by John Harbaugh in the locker room following today's victory over the Titans were meant for Ravens players and coaches only," Ravens Senior Vice President Kevin Byrne said in a statement. "The TV crew that was in the locker room was told by coach Harbaugh that it could not broadcast what he was about to say.

"When coach Harbaugh finished talking about various things happening around the NFL and in the AFC North, he told the crew that it could now use what he was going to say. Inexplicably, CBS-TV then aired comments coach Harbaugh specifically said were not to leave the locker room.

"CBS-TV immediately pulled the video and apologized to the Ravens."

A network spokesman told The Associated Press in an email: "We broadcast a clip during our postgame show that should not have aired. We immediately pulled it down and called the Baltimore Ravens to apologize."
