    Steelers @ Ravens Part 1
    A Hard Hitting, Defensive Affair as Steelers salvage Win.

    Baltimore, MD-- Pittsburgh jumped out to a 21-7 lead after the break due to turnovers and hard hitting. Baltimore wasn't done and somehow found themselves back in the game and taking the lead, mainly due to turnovers that seemed very lucky. It all started as Jerricho Cotchery tried to return a kick off, as he was popped he lost the ball and the Ravens scooped and scored. The following possession, Rashard Mendenhall takes a running play outside and was given a lick, putting the ball on the ground and Ray Lewis would pick the ball up and rumble into the endzone.

    With the score sitting at 24-21, the Steelers turn the ball over twice on downs and on the Ravens first play the Steelers sent a blitz which saw Ray Rice break to the open field only to be slowed down by Ryan Clark and eventually James Harrison came out of nowhere and caused the fumble into the endzone giving the ball back to the Steelers. Big Ben led the drive down the field and on the 15 yard line with about 15 seconds left, he knew he had 2 shots for the game winning score before they would kick the FG to send the game into overtime but that didn't happen as he hit Cotchery for the score and a 28-24 win.
