Baltimore Forces 7 Turnovers; Pounds Pittsburgh 35-7

The good news? There’s 15 more weeks left in the regular season.

Other than that, not much good could be said from a Steelers standpoint on Sunday, as the Black and Gold’s 8-game opener streak was demolished in embarrassing fashion, losing to the rival Ravens 35-7.

How bad was it? The Steelers trailed 21-7 at the half, and got the ball to start the third quarter. They fumbled on the first play, and the Ravens quickly scored to make it 27-7. Then to put salt in the wound, the Ravens went for two and got it to make it 29-7.

On the next Steelers play, QB Ben Roethlisberger was picked on a tipped pass by Ray Lewis. It wasn’t shocking to see the Steelers turn the ball over, they did it 7 times on the day.

Note: Ravens insider Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times reported via Twitter that Steelers pass-rushing linebacker James Harrison injured his knee.  The All-Pro’s return was questionable.
