Ravens frustrate Roethlisberger in 21-14 win over Steelers

PSR Logo
Joe Flacco threw a 95-yard touchdown pass to former Steelers' receiver Mike Wallace, and the Ravens beat Pittsburgh 21-14 on Sunday to snap a four-game losing streak.

The Baltimore Ravens defense frustrated Ben Roethlisberger and company for three and a half quarters while building a three touchdown lead and by the time the Steelers found their groove on offense it was too little too late. The Ravens snapped their four game losing streak with a 21-14 victory over the Steelers Sunday afternoon at M & T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

Former Steeler Mike Wallace got back at his old team in the first quarter with a 95-yard touchdown catch from Joe Flacco. Wallace caught a deep pass down the left sideline and outran Mike Mitchell to the end zone to produce the longest regular season play from scrimmage in Ravens history.

Special teams produced the rest of the Raven points with Justin Tucker field goals, from 49 and 42 yards respectively, and Javorius Allen blocked a Jordan Berry punt and Chris Moore scooped the ball and ran it in for a 14-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach.

The Steelers answered on their next possession with a 34-yard pass from Roethlisberger to Antonio Brown and a 4-yard Roethlisberger run in the final minute but they blew a red zone opportunity in the drive sandwiched in between the scoring drives.

Roethlisberger went 23 for 45 with 264 yards with a touchdown and an interception, while Flacco went 18 for 30 with 241 yards and one touchdown and one interception.

The critical play came on a 3rd and 6 from the Baltimore 13 with the Steelers down 21-7 with 3:20 to go with two timeouts. Roethlisberger took an ill-advised sack when Matt Judon took him down for a loss of 12 yards. On the next play Roethlisberger threw an incomplete pass to Sammie Coates and that ended any chance of a Steelers comeback.

The Steelers shot themselves in the foot with penalties along with ineffective offensive play. The Steelers had 84 yards in penalties in the first half, while the Steelers totaled just 66 yards of total offense.

The Steelers (4-4) will play host to the Dallas Cowboys (7-1) on Sunday afternoon while the Ravens will host the Cleveland Browns (0-8) on Thursday Night.
