First Look: Steelers At Ravens Kickoff NFL Week Two Thursday Night

Cincinnati Bengals v Baltimore Ravens

From: NFL Media

The Steelers opened the season with a 30-27 win over Cleveland on Kickoff Weekend. Quarterback BEN ROETHLISBERGER passed for 365 yards, including 278 in the first half as the Steelers built a 27-3 lead. After the Browns tied the game in the fourth quarter, Roethlisberger led Pittsburgh on a game-winning drive that culminated with SHAUN SUISHAM’s 41-yard field goal as time expired.

“We can’t apologize for the way we win,” says Roethlisberger. “We just have to win games.”

Also helping to win the game for the Steelers was second-year running back LE’VEON BELL, who rushed for 109 yards with a touchdown and had six catches for 88 yards. Bell’s 197 scrimmage yards are a career-high.

Baltimore will look to rebound from a 23-16 loss last week to Cincinnati. Despite passing for 345 yards, quarterback JOE FLACCO lost his first ever September start at home (11-1). Wide receiver STEVE SMITH, SR., who made his Ravens debut, had seven catches for 118 yards, including an 80-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter that briefly put Baltimore ahead.

“We got ourselves in position to win,” says Flacco, “but we didn’t play well enough to win it.”
