Prisuta's Further Review: 'We have to find ways to win'

Josh Scobee's 2-for-4 effort on field goals against the Ravens and his four misses in his first 10 attempts with the Steelers had Mike Tomlin at least re-thinking the kicking position.

"We have to turn the stones over," Tomlin said, when asked if he'd explore the possibility of finding a new kicker in the wake of the Steelers' 23-20 overtime loss to the Ravens on Thursday night at Heinz Field.

"We have to find ways to win games. Obviously, that's an element of it. It was an element of the outcome (against Baltimore)."

Scobee missed from 49 yards away with 2:29 left in regulation and from 41 yards out with 1:06 left in the fourth quarter.

The Ravens won the game on a 52-yard field goal by Justin Tucker with 5:13 left in the extra session.

"Pretty frustrating," Scobee acknowledged. "I feel like I let the team down. It's not something I ever want to remember doing. It's just a bad feeling. It was a hard-fought game on both sides. I wish I had been able to come through but it just wasn't my night."

Scobee is 3-for-7 on kicks from 40-49 yards after connecting from 45 yards out against Baltimore prior to the two fourth-quarter misses into Heinz Field's open end.

"The first kick I had in that direction I played the wind just inside the upright, it stayed there," he said. "And then the last two I played them down the middle and they both moved. It's a tough end to kick. It's something that takes experience."

As for whether he'll have an opportunity to gain more experience at Heinz Field, "I can't think about that stuff," Scobee said. "I just gotta let it play out."
