Every week, blogger Matt Vensel breaks down a critical play, sometimes with the help of Ravens players, from that week's game. Today, he looks at cornerback Corey Graham's interception on a trick play ran by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Following a key turnover by Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Charlie Batch hit tight end Heath Miller to tie the game with 7:24 to go. He then led a late drive that resulted in Shaun Suisham's 42-yard field goal as time expired to give the Steelers a 23-20 victory
The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year didn't return, heading to the locker room for further examination during the final minutes of the Ravens' 23-20 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium.
Every week, we hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. This week, we chatted with Alan Robinson, who covers the Pittsburgh Steelers for The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
After manhandling a soft Raiders front seven, the Ravens' line will be tested by the Steelers' OLB tandem of James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley. Their extensive repertoire of pass-rushing moves is formidable
Eight of the past 10 game between these rivals have been decided by a touchdown or less and there's no reason to expect anything different. In a tight game, who would you rather have driving your team down the field for a late score — Flacco or Leftwich?
Rashard Mendenhall, the Pittsburgh Steelers' leading rusher the past three seasons, is questionable for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens, but Isaac Redman said he expects Mendenhall to join Jonathan Dwyer and him in a crowded backfield.
Though neither played in the 55-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, defensive starters Haloti Ngata and Pernell McPhee were on the practice field Wednesday as the Ravens continued preparations for their AFC North showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend.
Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said today that his quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, suffered a right shoulder sprain in last night¿s 16-13 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs and his status is "questionable" for Sunday night's showdown against the Ravens at Heinz Field.
Every morning, Monday through Friday, blogger Matt Vensel will hook you up with reading material -- mostly on the Ravens but with some other Baltimore sports stuff, too -- to skim through as you slug down coffee and slack off at the start of your workday.
With three teams making the playoffs and two winning 12 games during the regular season, the AFC North was arguably the NFL's most competitive division last season. Unfortunately for the Ravens, it figures to be hyper-competitive again in 2012 -- well, except for anything involving the hapless Cleveland Browns.
Organized team activities and mandatory minicamp have come and gone, and the Ravens are off enjoying a little down time before the start of training camp. But my peers in the media never rest, which is why I have rounded up what several national media outlets have been saying about the Ravens over the past several days.
Here's a look at what other media outlets are saying about the Baltimore Ravens as they head into the NFL scouting combine, which starts on Wednesday in Indianapolis, and free agency, which begins March 13.
We are into the nitty-gritty of the fantasy playoffs, so let's get down to business with injury updates, some waiver-wire pickups if you're desperate, and more. If your squad needs help, shoot me a note. And feel free to leave your horror story in the comments section if you have already been dismissed.
We will all scrutinize about our fantasy lineups more than ever in the fantasy playoffs, and that has less to do with us wanting to win our league and more to do with us not wanting to end up losing because we benched the wrong player. The best advice: Always, always, always start your best players.
The Philadelphia Eagles haven't been the team we expected (I'm no longer using the 'D' word when talking about the Eagles, and you're welcome). They are 3-5 at the midway point of the season, and their margin for error is slim to make it into the playoffs.
Baltimore will most certainly live up to its Charm City billing for at least the next week or so after the Ravens stunned the Steelers, 23-20, on Sunday night -- a win that gives them their first series sweep of their AFC North rivals in the John Harbaugh-Joe Flacco era and the franchise's first since 2006.
Last week, we looked at the biggest surprises of the 2011 fantasy football campaign. This time around, we will hand out dishonors to the disappointing (non-injured) players who have torpedoed our seasons so far. Try not to cuss too much in the comments section below after receiving this list, OK?
