“It’s our fourth loss so every game here on out we can’t lose,” Foote said. “We gotta have that mentality.”
The Steelers fell to 6-4 despite statistical superiority over the Ravens in first downs (17-12), rushing yards (134-47), passing yards (201-164), total net yards (311-200) and time of possession (32:54-27:09).

“It’s not like we came out and just blew the game. We just lost,” added Wallace. “We didn’t get it done, but we’re gonna keep fighting. We’re the Steelers, baby.”
