At halftime the Ravens and Steelers are locked in a 9-6 field goal battle reminiscent of the defensive struggle this weekend between college football powers LSU and Alabama. Billy Cundiff's 51-yard field goal as time in the first half expired is the difference to this point.
The defenses have been the story of the game so far, though neither team has been able to capitalize on their defense's prowess. The Steelers have been held to 133 yards while the Ravens have accumulated 176. Most of the yardage has been exclusively through the air. The Ravens own the slight advantage on the ground 38-24.
The Steelers marched the ball down the field through the air and got inside the Ravens' 5-yard line, but were unable to capitalize, allowing a sack of Ben Roethlisberger on third down and goal, forcing the Steelers to kick a field goal. The Ravens got down to the 1-yard line as well midway through the first quarter, but had to settle for the field goal as well.
