Steelers Regain First in North as Ravens Lay Egg in Jacksonville

Remember last week when a lot of people were on the Steelers for only beating the Jaguars by four at 17-13? Well, it could have been signs of a turnaround for the Jaguars, who pulled off a great favor for the Steelers Monday night, beating the rival Baltimore Ravens 12-7 in Jacksonville.

The Jaguars defense stuffed the Ravens all night, holding Baltimore without a first down till the third quarter, and the Ravens only TD was scored with 2:02 remaining.

Ray Rice, who torched the Steelers on opening day, ran for just 28 yards with a fumble, and Joe Flacco was held to 137 yards passing the Ravens had just 10 first downs.

The most important matter – the loss means the Steelers move into first place for the time being. The Steelers are 5-2 after their third straight win on Sunday with a 32-20 win in Arizona. The Ravens, who have lost to two AFC South teams in the Titans and Jags, are 4-2.

Of course while it’s good to be in first for now, the two teams will meet in two weeks for bragging rights again for the division in Heinz Field.
