Steelers vs. Ravens 2012 score update: Jonathan Dwyer scores in 3rd quarter, but Pittsburgh still behind

Despite a touchdown by Jonathan Dwyer, the Ravens lead by seven at the end of the third quarter, 20-13.

The Steelers moved downfield early in the third quarter and tied the game 13-13 on Dwyer's 16-yard run, which came thanks in part to a great hustling block by quarterback Charlie Batch.

After forcing the Ravens to punt, it looked like the Steelers might grab the lead as Batch found Emmanuel Sanders at midfield wide open and with a clear path to the end zone. But Sanders inexplicably fumbled the ball, giving the Ravens the ball at their own 37. On the ensuing drive, Ray Rice rushed for a 34-yard touchdown.

After the Steelers got the ball back, Batch completed another long pass, this time to Antonio Brown, but the Steelers were eventually forced to punt. Sanders was injured on the drive, although he returned early in the fourth quarter. The Ravens had the ball at the end of the third quarter, and the Steelers will need to make up ground in the fourth.
