And…. The Steelers Did It Again

Pittsburgh’s Troy Polamalu and Ben Roethlisberger led a Steelers victory over the Baltimore Ravens once again this past Sunday.

Polamalu forced a fumble with a sack, while Roethlisberger used the turnover to connect with Isaac Redman with a 9-yard touchdown pass. The win has put Pittsburgh (9-3) at the top of the AFC North. LaMarr Woodley was the one to return the loose ball 19 yards, to Baltimore’s 9, which set up the touchdown. Redman broke tackles by both Dawan Landry and Jarret Johnson while running for the touchdown.

As expected, the game was a purely defensive battle. And again, Polamalu and Roethlisberger made all the difference. Ravens’ linebacker Terrell Suggs said “everybody watching TV at home, everybody in the stadium, you all know it. You see 43 at the line, four-minute offense, he’s coming. It was just like, I hope we have a plan. It just didn’t feel good when I saw that hair at the line.” Polamalu wears #43, and is well known by the Ravens ever since his 40-yard interception return in their AFC title game in 2008.

Steelers’ coach Mike Tomlin said the game was “tough to play, but let’s be frank, we needed to come here and even the score in this matchup. Thankfully we did, and we’ll push on.”
