    Steelers Get Even After Win

    [​IMG]
    Pittsburgh gets the win at home and get even their record in convincing fashion against the Ravens, 7-31. This wasn't a statistical masterpiece by the offense, but they really didn't have that far to go during much of the game. The defense on Raven drive after Raven drive would set up the offense in great field position. Also, didn't help that it was rainy Pittsburgh evening, so the passing game would be no real help. Fortunately for the Steelers, we have two power backs that love to mix it in game where the dominate run game would prevail. Antonio Brown had the most receptions with 4, but made the most of them putting up 97 yards and a TD. The defense would let Flacco breath as they put him on his ass for 5 sacks on the day, two coming form RE Cameron Heyward. Baltimore would get a drive going in the second quarter, but that was about it. The fourth quarter was just a mix of Bell and Dwyer to run clock and end any hopes of a Raven miracle come back.

    Notable stats:
    Ben Roethisberger 8-13 175 2 TDs
    Le'Veon Bell 18 carries 72 yards
    Jonathan Dwyer 13 carries 38 yards 2 TDs

    Jason Worilds 4 tackle 2 TFL 1 sack

    Tale of Two Halves

    The 49ers came in to Tennessee trying to increase their lead over the Cardinals in NFC west, and after half of the game, that looks like what they'd do. After both teams scored touchdowns on their opening drives, the 49ers turn it on, turning two first half interceptions of Jake Locker into points, and leading the Titans 24-7 at the half. The game looked all about over in the first half, with the 49ers dominating in the air, ground, and defense. The Titans regrouped at the halfway mark however, and Locker led the opening second half drive to seven points on a long scramble into the end zone to close the gap 24-14. Kaepernick, nearly flawless in the first half, commited his second of three interceptions on the next drive. Chris Johnson pounded the ball into the endzone to bring the game closer at 24-21. Kaepernick and the 49ers returned to the field and drove down to the Titan's 45, but had to settle for a 52 yard field goal from Phil Dawson, increasing their lead to 6. With the ball and little time left, Locker drove the Titans down the field and found Kendall Wright in the endzone to give the Titans a slim 1 point lead. It would prove the difference, however, as on the next drive Kaepernick dropped back and threw his third interception of the game, and the Titans ran the ball to end the game.

    Notable 49ers Stats:

    Kaepernick finished the day 13/23 for 212 yards with 3 TDs and 3 INTs
    Kendall Hunter broke the century mark with 103 yards on 13 carries
    Michael Crabtree continually beat defenders to the tune of 5 catches for 74 yards
    Vernon Davis was held to only one catch for 10 yards, but it was for a touchdown
    Glend Dorsey notched 2 sacks
    Nnamdi Asomugha and Chris Culliver recorded interceptions
    Phil Dawson notched a 52 yard FG and was 2/2 on the day

    Notable Titans Stats:

    Jake Locker completed 13/18 passes for 202 yards with 2 TDs and 2 INTs. He also added 32 yards and another TD on the ground
    Chris Johnson ran 20 times for 125 yards and a TD
    Delanie Walker led the team with 5 catches for 101 yards and a TD
    Kendall Wright followed him with 3 grabs for 44 yards and a TD
    Erin Henderson, Blidi Wreh-Wilson, and Daimian Stafford pulled in interceptions
    David Buehler was 0/1 kicking with his only attempt bouncing off the crossbar
