Steelers find their run game, lead 10-6 at half

Ben Roethlisberger, Heath Miller AP

The Steelers averaged 61 rushing yards per game through their first five games this year.

They’ve run for 82 in the first half against the Ravens, allowing them to hold onto the ball for more than 17 minutes and helping them to a 10-6 lead at the half. Rookie Le’Veon Bell has 68 yards on 12 carries and Ben Roethlisberger has been efficient while completing 10-of-13 passes for 99 yards and a touchdown.

Roethlisberger hit Heath Miller for that touchdown, but the tight end blundered later in the half to help the Ravens cut the lead. Miller fumbled after a catch and safety Matt Elam recovered to get the Ravens the ball in Pittsburgh territory. As has been the story throughout the game, the Ravens couldn’t generate much of anything on offense and Justin Tucker’s field goal was all they could get.

The Ravens have converted just two of their six third downs with a sack and a stuff of Bernard Pierce on third-and-1 accounting for two of the failures. Ravens-Steelers games tend to turn on plays like that, so Baltimore will have to make a few of them if they want to leave Pittsburgh with a win on Sunday.

    Where are the haters now? Didn’t we tell everyone we’d go on a 10-2 run and make the playoffs? Even fellow Steeler fans bashed us. Everyone back on the bandwagon now?

    Ray Rice has his longest run of the season. It was 13 yards. It’s week 7.

    This game is playing out how they always play out, but something is definitely missing without the old faces. They need a fight or something.

    While most Ohioans are hunting deer and turkey… 1st round draft BUST david decastro is hunting teammate’s knees.

    Yes, we’re all jealous of the Steelers…love the refs today with Jacoby getting raped in the endzone and no call earlier. Harbaugh gets dumbest coach call of the year….nice onside kick call, MORON!

    No style points awarded, but still a fun game. I laughed, I cried, it became a part of me. The rivalry suffers a bit without Ray Ray and Hines.

  18. wearethesteelers says: Oct 20, 2013 7:21 PM

    Life of a Steeler fan is SO nice!

  19. jmblosser82 says: Oct 20, 2013 7:21 PM

    Onside kick showed how desperate harbaugh is, the lack of confidence they have in Flacco and in that much improved defense. Was a good game, like I thought, nothing to be depressed about raven fans.

  20. wearethesteelers says: Oct 20, 2013 7:23 PM

    Hey-hey-hey

    Where are all the Ratturd fans?

    Refs handed this one to the Steelers. We can’t win with the refs having it out for us. Where you at Deb?

    Hopefully, Ravens will turn it around. Another winnable game lost. Steelers played hard except for one trick pony Polomalu who looked like a real fool trying to block an extra point. Don’t think the onside kick had anything to do with lack of confidence in Flacco; rather, too much confidence in defense and the mistaken belief that those things often succeed.

    Lol

  24. pens5829 says: Oct 20, 2013 7:36 PM

    Gameover78 and ravanator = sore losers. Wha! Wha! Wha! Your new $100 million QB couldn’t make enough plays. Plain and simple.

  25. Joemontanaflacco says: Oct 20, 2013 7:37 PM

    Ravan(h)ator, everybody knows you are a Steelers’ fan. Your gag is played.

  26. alchemistcirca1979 says: Oct 20, 2013 9:35 PM

    this is just a thought guys (for now), but the Steelers started out 0-4 and two weeks from now when the Ravens return from their buy they could very well be in LAST place in the AFC NORTH.

    How interesting is that???

    The steelers took it to the ravens. The ratbirds are like the “Titanic”, they are sinking fast. Abandon ship why you can.
