Roethlisberger Throws 6 TD’s Again, Steelers Rout Ravens

Roethlisberger Throws 6 TD’s Again, Steelers Rout Ravens

Justin K. Aller/Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) -- For the second straight week, Ben Roethlisberger threw six touchdowns as the Pittsburgh Steelers beat Baltimore 43-23 on Sunday night. Roethlisberger's performance helped set an NFL record for combined touchdown passes in consecutive games, with 12.

"I don't think any of us are surprised by anything he does," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. "We have been looking at it for some time."

Big Ben's night began in the second quarter with a five-yard scoring pass to Le'Veon Bell that tied the game at 7-7. Two minutes later, Roethlisberger connected with Martavis Bryant to take the lead before finding Markus Wheaton for a 47-yard strike to give the Steelers (6-3) a 22-17 halftime lead.

Baltimore (5-4) struggled to keep their composure, committing 10 penalties, while the offense could not catch up to the Steelers. Joe Flacco was sacked four times and intercepted once but did throw two touchdowns for 303 yards. 

Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh quarterback continued his historic stretch with three more touchdown's in the second half, including a second pass to Bryant. His sixth came on a fourth-and-2 play with under two minutes remaining as he connected with Matt Spaeth to set the record.

The Steelers also celebrated one of their greatest ever, retiring former defensive lineman Joe Greene's number 75 at halftime.

Joe Flacco: Still Have to Put the Work In

Joe Flacco: Still Have to Put the Work In

Rob Carr/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- The Baltimore Ravens will have the spotlight to themselves after the Orioles were knocked out of the ALCS by the Royals on Wednesday.

Fresh off throwing five touchdown passes, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is making sure his team does everything they can to prepare the right way after blowing out the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday.

Flacco said the biggest challenge the team will face after an easy win is "coming in here and reminding yourself and everybody to put the work in. I think that comes naturally for us, it's something we're good at doing, once you get out there on Sunday everything takes care of itself."

Concerning Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, Flacco said: "We were in the same class. As long as you're still talking about us, we're somewhat relevant, so I guess that's a good thing.  It's nice to see that we are still relevant."

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh knows the Falcons will be hungry for a win after losing three in a row.

"Atlanta's good. They're going to be on turf, so they're going to be fast," Harbaugh said. "They've got big, fast receivers. They've got fast running backs, and they got a quarterback that drives the whole thing. That's an explosive football team, and we've got to be ready for them."

The Ravens will host the Atlanta Falcons, who are 0-3 on the road this season.

Flacco Feasts on Bucs Secondary

Flacco Feasts on Bucs Secondary

Rob Carr/Getty Images(TAMPA BAY, FL) -- Joe Flacco tossed five touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the Baltimore Ravens went on to win 48-17.

Flacco threw four of his touchdowns in the first quarter, putting up a lead that would prove too much for the Bucs to remain competitive. 

"It was very enjoyable. You don't get those too often in this league. ... It was pretty crazy," Flacco said. "It happened so quickly. It was such an awkward situation, but it was definitely fun for us."

On the receiving end of those passes were Torrey Smith, who caught the first two, Kamar Aiken, Michael Campanaro and Steve Smith.

Baltimore returns home to host the Atlanta Falcons next week.

Ravens Pummel Steelers Amidst Rice Distraction

Ravens Pummel Steelers Amidst Rice Distraction

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- If the Baltimore Ravens were distracted by the controversy surrounding former teammate Ray Rice, they didn't show it Thursday night. Joe Flacco threw for two touchdowns and Justin Tucker made all four of his field goal attempts as the Ravens pummeled the Pittsburgh Steelers 26-6. Raven players fielded questions all week about former teammate Ray Rice, who was released by the team and then indefinitely suspended by the NFL for domestic violence. A video was released by TMZ Sports Monday showed Rice knocking out his then-fiancee (now wife) Janay Palmer during a dispute.

The Ravens showed quickly that they were ready to play Thursday when Flacco found tight end Owen Daniels for a two yard touchdown pass on their first drive of the game. The next time the Ravens received the ball, they drove it 65 yards before Justin Tucker hit a 30 yard field goal. Flacco finished the game completing 21-of-29 passes for 166 yards. Ben Roethlisberger was sacked twice and completed 22-of-37 passes for 217 yards and an interception for Pittsburgh (1-1) in the loss.
