Wallace 95-Yard Touchdown Sparks Ravens
Mike Wallace wanted to send a message to his one if his former teams. He busted a 95-yard touchdown in the second-quarter en route to a 21 to 14 Ravens victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens also snapped a 4-game losing streak.
Wallace had 4 catches for 124 yards and 1 touchdown. Flacco had 241 yards passing 1 touchdown and 1 interception. That connection seemed to be on point all game long. Ravens fan Moussa Abuelhawa said, "It was great that Mike Wallace and Joe Flacco played well. They needed a better connection and that touchdown helped the process."
The only other touchdown scored in the game by the Ravens was on a blocked punt by Buck Allen that was returned by Chris Moore for 14 yards. They would go for a 2-point conversion and it would be good on a Joe Flacco pass to Steve Smith Sr.
The Steelers would be out of sync all afternoon until they found rhythm in the fourth-quarter. Ben Rothelisberger returned from a knee injury. He threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown and also rushed for a 4-yard touchdown in the fourth-quarter.
Rothelisberger finished with 264 yards passing 1 touchdown and 1 interception. Brown finished with 7 catches for 85 yards and 1 touchdown.
After Pittsburgh scored its second touchdown of the day, they would attempt on onside kick but failed. The Baltimore Ravens will host the Cleveland Browns (0-9) on Thursday Night.
