Ravens vs. Steelers score update: Pittsburgh trails 10-7 after 1st quarter

The Pittsburgh Steelers trail the Baltimore Ravens 10-7 after the first quarter of a huge divisional contest.

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.

Pittsburgh has out-gained Baltimore 93-68. Leftwich completed 3-of-7 passes for 46 yards in the quarter, while Joe Flacco completed 5-of-8 for 61 yards. Ray Rice had five carries for three yards.
