Winning in Baltimore has not come easy as of late, as the Black and Gold have dropped five in a row there. “Baltimore is definitely a tough place to play,” LaMarr Woodley said. “We haven’t won there in years.” Anyway you look at it, some of these losses have been tough:
2007 Baltimore 27 Pittsburgh 21 – In the season finale going up against Troy Smith and sitting most of the starters, the Steelers lose to wrap up the season 10-6. Charlie Batch goes 16-for-31 for 218 yards and two scores for the Steelers, and two mostly unknown running backs for the Ravens Musa Smith, and Cory Ross runs for a combined 155 yards and two scores. To their credit, the Steelers tried to make it a game even though they played like they didn’t really care.
2006 Baltimore 27 Pittsburgh 0 – This was a painful, awful game to watch. The Steelers get bombed by the better Ravens team (at least this day), and they commit three turnovers and put up just 172 yards in the big setback. Ben Roethlisberger was 21-for-41 for 214 yards with two picks and he was also sacked nine times for minus 73 yards. This was quite possibly the worst game the team has played in Baltimore.
2005 Baltimore 16 Pittsburgh 13 (OT) – Even with Tommy Maddox, the team hangs in with the Ravens, only to have a fluke interception that was kicked by Hines Ward stop a late drive that could have won them the game. They actually outgain the Ravens 282-241, and hold Chester Taylor and Jamal Lewis to a combined 87 yards. Maddox was 19-for-36 with 230 yards with a TD and pick. A tough loss that by the end of the year was forgotten with a ring.
2004 Baltimore 30 Pittsburgh 13 – Remember this game? It was the only one the team lost the ENTIRE regular season. Tommy Maddox gets hurt, and Ben Roethlisberger comes in as a rookie and throws two scores but also two picks, one of which was returned for a score. The Ravens go up 20-0 before the Steelers make it somewhat of a game in the fourth quarter.
2003 Baltimore 13 Pittsburgh 10 (OT) – Josh Miller throws a TD pass (yes, he was the punter), and the team ends a tough season at 6-10 with a loss to the AFC North Champion Ravens. The team did nothing on the ground, but kept Jamal Lewis from breaking the record for most yards in a season. A Sunday night game that was pretty painful to watch as the team ended a bad year.
