Ravens Sneak Past Steelers

Justin K. Aller/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) -- The Pittsburgh Steelers were without their starting quarterback, and the Baltimore Ravens took advantage.

Jacoby Jones returned a punt for a touchdown, the Ravens defense clamped down when necessary and the Ravens defeated the Steelers 13-10 Sunday night at Heinz Field.

The Steelers (6-4) had to go with backup quarteback Byron Leftwich in place of injured Ben Roethlisberger, and were off to a fast start when Leftwich had a touchdown run on the opening drive. Leftwich completed 18 of 39 passes for 201 yards with an interception on the night.

However, the Ravens (8-2) would respond defensively and get a field goal after a Steelers fumble. Then, Jacoby Jones ran back a punt 63 yards to put the Ravens up 10-7 in the first quarter and did not trail after that. "We took the mentality as a team that we're going into a fistfight," Baltimore safety James Ihedigbo said.

The Ravens only managed 200 total yards in the victory.
