Steelers Regain First Place Thanks to Ravens Choke Job in Seattle

And just like that – the Steelers are back by themselves in first.

Thanks to the choke job once again by the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, the Steelers are back in first with a mark of 7-3. The Steelers beat the Bengals 24-17, and the Ravens, who last week were acting like idiots dumping Gatorade on John Harbaugh’s head after they beat the Steelers, lost to the 2-6 Seattle Seahawks by a score of 22-17.

Joe Flacco was 29-for-52 for 255 yards with a pick and a TD, and the birds had three turnovers and were 5-for-12 on third downs. Marshawn Lynch led the Seahawks with 109 yards. The Steelers beat the Seahawks 24-0 in week two after they lost to the Ravens in week one.

Here’s the updated AFC North Standings

North W L T Pct PF PA Home Road Div Conf Streak
 Pittsburgh Steelers 7 3 0 .700 220 179 4-1-0 3-2-0 1-2-0 5-3-0 Won 1
 Baltimore Ravens 6 3 0 .667 225 152 4-0-0 2-3-0 2-0-0 4-2-0 Lost 1
 Cincinnati Bengals 6 3 0 .667 212 164 2-2-0 4-1-0 1-1-0 5-2-0 Lost 1
 Cleveland Browns 3 6 0 .333 131 183 2-3-0 1-3-0 0-1-0 2-4-0 Lost 3

The Steelers get the bye, and will come back to play the Chiefs on Sunday night, November 27th. The Ravens are at home for the Bengals next Sunday, and then on Thanksgiving night they will take on the 49ers.

Maybe they will think better than acting like they won the Super Bowl in week 9 next time.
