The Steelers Ravens game was as expected close and dominated by the two outstanding defensive units. Ben Roethlisberger had an average game going 28 of 44 for 257 yards and 2 touchdowns. While Flacco did pretty much the same going 24 of 35 for 251 yards and 1 touchdown. The running games were pretty much held in check with Le’Veon Bell picking up 73 yards on 16 carries while Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce combined for only 67 yards on 21 carries.
While Ben stayed with the short and midrange passes Flacco aired it out several times. Torrey Smith had 6 catches for 92 yards and Jacoby Jones 4 for 53. On the Steelers side once again Antonio Brown started off hot but for some reason Ben stopped calling his number in favor of Emmanuel Sanders, 6 for 43, Bell, 7 for 63; and Heith Miller, 8 for 88 yards. All very talented but not Brown who finished with only 5 catches for 59 yards. He’s a game breaker, but only if the ball is thrown his way. Brown has 85 catches for 1103 yards on the year.
