Playing without injured Pro Bowl running back Le’Veon Bell, the Steelers couldn’t establish anything on the ground and Ben Roethlisberger was forced to throw more than normal.
The Steelers could not block the Ravens defensive line. The Ravens defense racked up 5 sacks and forced three turnovers.
The Ravens defense received a huge boost from Haloti Ngata who returned. His force in the paint was a huge difference maker.
