Ravens dominate Steelers 26-6

The Ravens' defense took over the game and held the Steelers to just three field goals.

This was not a classic Ravens-Steelers game.

With a lot of games between the two rivals coming down to the wire, the Ravens controlled the game from start to finish, winning 26-6.

The Ravens defense forced three turnovers from the Steelers (1-1). The first came on a fumble from receiver Justin Brown on Pittsburgh's first possession. The second was a recovered fumble from linebacker C.J. Mosley in the second half. And the last one came when Haloti Ngata tipped a Ben Roethlisberger pass before diving and intercepting it in the fourth quarter. The Ravens (1-1) held the Steelers to 99 rushing yards and 301 total yards for the game. A lot of Roethlisberger's 217 passing yards came during the Steelers' final drive of the game, which resulted in the interception to Ngata.

For the Ravens, the rushing game got going in the second half after a sluggish start. Bernard Pierce, benched after a fumble against Cincinnati, ran the ball 22 times for 96 yards. Justin Forsett backed him up with 56 yards on eight carries, with one of his rushes going for 41 yards.
