Quick Yinzing: Steelers tame Ravens in rivalry win

The Ravens were facing their biggest rival for first place in the AFC North, and they were sleepwalking for most of the game on offense.

He had 35 carries for 144 yards, two touchdowns and a long of 21 yards. Baltimore trailed 19-0 at halftime, generated only 154 yards through three quarters and stumbled through a second consecutive game with only one touchdown.

Villanueva noticed the booing directed at Ravens players as they knelt together before the anthem in a silent prayer for America.

Pundits are pounding the Ravens for their ineptitude on offense, but they are at least averaging a robust 142.3 yards rushing per game, fourth-best in the NFL. The Steelers sacked Joe Flacco four times and finished with six pressures; they had two interceptions and seven passes defensed; they made seven tackles for loss; they forced and recovered a fumble.

The Ravens trailed all game and didn't score a touchdown until the third quarter when Flacco connected on a 16-yard pass to Wallace.

Now the Ravens will have to face Pro Bowl quarterback Derek Carr's Raiders next week, the first of several upcoming teams with explosive offensives, including the Minnesota Vikings on October 22 and the Tennessee Titans on November 5.

Baltimore defensive coordinator Dean Pees said Humphrey has "been like a pro as a rookie, and I have really been impressed with that". Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin should play a bigger role. "You're not going to make a bunch of changes; you just have to improve". They grappled with both problems this week and, they hope, set them both aside.

The move took many members of the team by surprise.

Applied to this instance, I think bettors are putting too much emphasis on Baltimore's humiliating 44-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in London last Sunday. Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier sniffed out the play and turned back in time to undercut Watson and make the play. However, once the Ravens players went down to their knee - and remember this was before the national anthem - thousands of fans started to boo them. "We did the best we could".

"I sucked", Flacco said. I am not into the politics of the game.

Ravens national anthem singer Joey Odoms quit this week because of the fan reaction to player protest. Mike Tomlin and John Harbaugh, who were hired in 2007 and 2008, respectively, are two of the longest-tenured coaches in the National Football League, perhaps the most transient of American team sports. It also shows some smart, quick decision-making by Collins, who could've easily run the play as it was designed and maybe gained a yard or two, but instead chose to change things up.

Collins had a game-long 50-yard run, which led to the Ravens' only touchdown, but Harbaugh said the running back would be on a short leash in the future.
