Quarterback: B-minus Joe Flacco aggravated his sprained ankle, an injury that's affecting his mobility and mechanics. He completed 23 of 35 passes for 289 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions for a 100.8 passer rating, slowing down following a hot start. He threw his first touchdown in the past three weeks as he was able to take advantage of the absence of injured strong safety Troy Polamalu.

Running back: B-plus
Ray Rice turned in a terrific 44-yard catch-and-run to set up the game-tying score. Rice also had an electrifying 19-yard run earlier in the game. He finished the game with 88 yards on 19 carries and also caught five passes for 67 yards. Willis McGahee contributed a touchdown run in the red zone. And fullback Le'Ron McClain grinded out 28 yards on four carries.

Receiver: C-plus
Mark Clayton created some separation for a 54-yard reception, but also had a fumble recovered by the Steelers. He caught seven passes for 129 yards. Derrick Mason caught a touchdown pass for the Ravens' first offensive touchdown in the first half since Oct. 4, finishing with seven catches for 62 yards. Tight end Todd Heap and receiver Kelley Washington weren't involved much, catching one pass apiece.

Offensive line: D
They didn't provide nearly good enough pass protection for Joe Flacco, who was continually sacked and hit as he aggravated a sprained ankle. He was sacked five times. Marshal Yanda started at right offensive guard ahead of Chris Chester. The Steelers' outside linebackers and defensive ends won the matchup against offensive tackles Jared Gaither and Michael Oher toward the end of the game.

Defensive line: C-minus
They got pushed around at the point of attack as Rashard Mendenhall grinded out some tough yards inside to keep the chains moving. Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata committed some silly penalties. There wasn't nearly enough pressure on quarterback Dennis Dixon, who was making his NFL starting debut. Rookie outside linebacker-defensive end Paul Kruger's interception return in overtime set up the game-winning field goal.

Linebacker: C-minus
Middle linebacker Ray Lewis got knocked around by the Steelers' offensive line and rarely met Rashard Mendenhall in the hole before he could generate some momentum. Lewis' blitzes were solid. Tavares Gooden and Jarret Johnson were far too quiet. Mendenhall gained 95 yards on 24 carries, averaging four yards per rush.

Secondary: D
They failed to capitalize on Ben Roethlisberger's absence due to a concussion. And Dennis Dixon rushed for a touchdown and threw a touchdown. He didn't ever seem confused by the Ravens' coverage schemes. They're fortunate that Roethlisberger was out. Domonique Foxworth struggled to stay with Santonio Holmes, who scored his seventh touchdown against Baltimore in the past six games. Rookie cornerback Lardarius Webb was solid in his NFL starting debut.

Special teams: C
Billy Cundiff won the game in overtime on a 29-yard field goal. He tied the score at 17-17 on a 24-yard field goal in the fourth quarter, but didn't have enough distance to connect on a 56-yard field goal to potentially win the game as time expired. The Ravens' kick coverage was okay. Punt returner Chris Carr played as if his job was on the line, returning five punts for a 14.2 average with only one fair catch. Lardarius Webb averaged 21.3 yards on four returns. There were some crucial, avoidable penalties.
