BALTIMORE – The Baltimore Ravens defeated the Steelers, 26-6, at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday Night Football.

Pittsburgh marched into Ravens' territory on its opening drive of the contest before the drive was stalled at the Baltimore 16-yard line due to a fumble recovered by the defense. QB Joe Flacco then led his team on a 12-play, 85-yard drive that he capped off with a two-yard touchdown pass to TE Owen Daniels to give the Ravens a 7-0 lead.

K Justin Tucker connected on a 30-yard field goal midway through the second quarter to increase Baltimore's lead 10-0. K Shaun Suisham connected on a 25-yard field goal late in the second quarter and the teams entered halftime with Baltimore leading 10-3.

Suisham added a 43-yarder early in the third quarter to cut the lead 10-6, but it would be the last points Pittsburgh would score. On the Ravens' ensuing possession, Flacco led the team on a 12-play, 80-yard drive and he capped it off with another touchdown pass to Daniels, this time a one-yarder, to give Baltimore a 17-6 lead.

The Ravens' defense forced two fourth quarter turnovers to close the door on a Pittsburgh comeback. Tucker added three fourth quarter field goals, from 23 yards, 22 yards and 20 yards to give Baltimore its final points of the contest.
