Pittsburgh's offense showed some life in the third quarter after struggling in the opening half. The Steelers drove 67 yards on their first possession of the second half, but the drive ended abruptly when Byron Leftwich was intercepted by Corey Graham.
Baltimore then took the ball and drove 41 yards in eight plays before settling for a 39-yard field goal by Justin Tucker to make the score 13-7.
On Pittsburgh's next drive, the Steelers moved the ball 80 yards on 12 plays, but they too failed to punch it in the end zone. Shaun Suisham's 22-yard field goal cut the deficit to 13-10.
Leftwich and Emmanuel Sanders found a bit of a connection in the quarter, hooking up twice for long gains. Leftwich has completed 11-of-24 passes for 153 yards, while Sanders has three catches for 82 yards.
