It took just three snaps and 31 seconds for the Steelers to get on the board. After a 42-yard pass interference call put Pittsburgh in Baltimore territory, Byron Leftwich, starting in place of the injured Ben Roethlisberger, showed off some running ability on a 31-yard touchdown scramble.
Baltimore scored the next 10 points in the quarter, using defense and special teams to do it. First, the Ravens forced Mike Wallace to fumble deep in Steelers territory. Baltimore was unable to get the ball in the end zone, but they managed a 26-yard field goal. Later in the quarter, Jacoby Jones returned a punt 63 yards for a touchdown.
