The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday 28-24, improving to 7-0 on the season.
Steelers linebacker Robert Spillane got the scoring started early, picking off Ravens’ QB Lamar Jackson on just the third play of the game and returning it for a touchdown.
Pittsburgh would fall behind however, trailing Baltimore 17-7 at halftime.
The Steelers defense stepped up in the second half, allowing Pittsburgh to score twice in the third quarter and take a 21-17 lead.
Both teams would trade a touchdown in the fourth quarter, and the Steelers defense forced a huge turnover on downs with just under two minutes to play.
The Ravens got the ball back for one last possession with under a minute to play, and a final throw to the endzone, with time expiring, was knocked down by the Steelers defense.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 21 of his 32 passes, for 182 yards, and two touchdowns in Sunday’s win.
Receiver Chase Claypool had the go-ahead score with seven-and-a-half minutes left in the game.
Tight end Eric Ebron and running-back James Conner also added touchdowns in the victory.
Defensively, Spillane also recorded a fumble recovery late in the game and linebacker Alex Highsmith had an interception.
The Steelers defense also sacked Lamar Jackson four times on Sunday.
The only downside to the Steelers victory is that defensive lineman Cam Heyward left the game, with just seconds remaining, after suffering a second in-game injury.
The status of his injury is unknown at this time.
Pittsburgh and Baltimore will square off again on Thanksgiving night on NBC.
