The defense was terrible on third down, and Baltimore exploited Pittsburgh a number of ways. The Ravens converted 14 of their 21 third-down attempts.

Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau has only been beaten once by a rookie quarterback since his return to Pittsburgh in 2004. He and his record will be tested by the 6-2 Cincinnati Bengals and their standout rookie signal-caller, Andy Dalton

James Harrison returned to action and looked like his 2008 self, racking up three sacks and a forced fumble, but Pittsburgh's defense faltered when it mattered most and Baltimore's Joe Flacco drove 92 yards in a little over two minutes for a 26-yard touchdown to Torrey Smith, capping off a 23-20 win for the Ravens.

Pittsburgh finally beat New England because it finally flipped the script. The head-to-head records don’t lie. The Steelers have been at the mercy of the Patriots for the past decade, and it looks even worse when you throw out Pittsburgh’s win over Matt Cassel in 2008.

James Harrison has been cleared to practice. The team will need to hope he's on the fast track, though, as two other starting linebackers could be out of the lineup for a crucial rematch with the Baltimore Ravens.

The Pittsburgh Steelers exercised some demons this Sunday evening with a 25-17 victory over the New England Patriots and handed QB Tom Brady his first loss at Heinz Field since the 2004 season. Ben Roethlisberger, not Brady, went all-out in the passing game, racking up 365 yards and two touchdowns.

Ike Taylor is a top-five cornerback, without a doubt – maybe even top-three. It’s funny, because in an article published prior to the season by USA Today, Ike Taylor wasn’t ranked among the top ten. In fact, he didn’t receive a single vote by any of the eight staffers making up the list and wasn’t included among the honorable mentions.

The Steelers find themselves back in first place in the AFC North with a 5-2 record and boast a league-best 171.9 passing yards allowed per game, but they'll face their toughest test of the season in a home date against the high-scoring offense of the New England Patriots.
