    Baltimore dominated this game in every way but midway through the 4th quarter HB Ray Rice couldn't hold onto the ball and Baltimore let one get away. After kicking off to start the game Baltimore picked off the first pass of the game and returned it to the Steeler 2 yard line and Ray Rice took the following handoff up the middle giving Baltimore a 7-0 lead less than a minute into the game. Baltimore would add a FG at the end of the quarter and the Steelers kicked one as well as the half expired making the score 10-3 at halftime. Big Ben would throw a couple more picks in the third but the Ravens were only able to put another FG on the board making the score 13-3 heading into the 4th quarter. After another Cundiff FG putting the Ravens up 16-3 the Ray Rice fumbles started. First Troy Polamalu leveled him, LaMarr Woodley scooped it up, ran it 58 yards for the score cutting the lead to 6. After another Ray Rice fumble, Big Ben squeezed the ball into Antonio Brown's hands and 44 yards later Pittsburgh had their first lead 17-16 with under two minutes to play. On the following Baltimore possession Pittsburgh LB Lawrence Timmons found himself matched up with Torrey Smith in the slot. Sensing the post pattern Timmons played it beautifully user picking the pass and the Steelers took possesion around midfield. Up 1 and in this situation many, many times before the Steelers were not gonna just run, run, run and give the ball back to the Ravens to kick a game winning FG at the end. So Big Ben brought the Steelers to the line took the snap and low and behold TE Heath Miller was wide open, thanks to a Baltimore blitz, and went 45 yards for the score putting Pittsburgh up to stay 24-16. Another Ray Rice fumble later and the Steelers ran the clock out for the win.

    Good Game Kris....I had NO business winning this one but I'll take it.
