After getting whipped by the Ravens back on September 30th, the Steelers thought of it as a wake-up call, one that to this point clearly has changed their season.
The team Sunday came out in a tough place to play and took care of business, beating the Ravens 23-16 to move to 5-2-1 on the season, staying in first play in the AFC North.
The defense did their job in holding down Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense, and the Steelers offense was able to more than enough with James Conner again having a huge day, going for 107 yards rushing and also catching seven passes for 56 yards with a score.
With a short week ahead with a home Thursday night game, the Steelers move to 3-1-1 in Divisional play, a huge key should the Bengals stay in the race.
Here’s a couple takeaways from the win for the Steelers as they prepare now for the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night at Heinz Field.
