With the game on the line and the Ravens trailing by four late in the fourth quarter, Joe Flacco led the offense on a long drive that put the ball on the Steelers’ two-yard-line with two shots at the end zone.
Yet again, in Pittsburgh, the Ravens couldn’t get the job done, and it looked like Flacco and head coach John Harbaugh would fall to 0-4 in Pittsburgh.
But after the defense forced a Pittsburgh three-and-out, Flacco got the ball back, and this time, he delivered.
The Ravens’ quarterback calmly led the offense down the field and with under a minute left, he hit wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh on an 18-yard touchdown pass to give the Ravens a 17-14 lead.
Linebacker Ray Lewis sealed the win with an interception of Charlie Batch, and the Ravens picked up just their second win at Heinz Field since 2001.
More in a bit.
