Ravens vs. Steelers score update: Pittsburgh trails 10-7 at halftime

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens are locked in a defensive battle on Sunday night in Pittsburgh, with the Steelers trailing 10-7 at the half.

Neither team scored in the second quarter, as the defenses controlled the game. Pittsburgh has managed 144 yards of offense, while Baltimore is at just 137 yards. The Ravens' only touchdown is a 63-yard punt return by Jacoby Jones.

Outside of a 31-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, Byron Leftwich has mostly struggled in the place of injured starter Ben Roethlisberger. Leftwich has completed just 7-of-17 passes for 85 yards. The Steelers' running backs have also gotten very little going, with Jonathan Dwyer, Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman combining for 28 yards on nine carries.

Joe Flacco has had some success throwing for Baltimore, completing 15-of-22 passes for 116 yards. But Flacco and the Ravens passing game has not been able to get any big plays. The running game has been completely anemic, as Ray Rice has 10 carries for just 13 yards.
