Recap


Ravens 13, Steelers 10:
Jacoby Jones ran a punt back 63 yards for a touchdown and Ray Rice piled up 93 yards from scrimmage as visiting Baltimore knocked off rival Pittsburgh.

Joe Flacco went 20-of-32 for 164 yards and the defense forced a pair of turnovers for the Ravens (8-2), who have won three straight to take a two-game lead in the AFC North.

As Ben Roethlisberger watched from the sidelines with his throwing arm in a sling, backup Byron Leftwich started out strong but got banged around by the Baltimore defense and ended up going 17-of-37 for 201 yards and an interception for the Steelers (6-4).

Leftwich went deep on the first play from scrimmage and ended up drawing a pass interference penalty to get into Ravens territory. The former first-round pick scrambled for a 31-yard touchdown two plays later to give Pittsburgh a quick 7-0 edge.

Mike Wallace fumbled on the Steelers’ next possession and Baltimore turned it into points on Justin Turner’s 26-yard field goal. Pittsburgh was forced to punt later in the first quarter and Jones fielded it at his own 37-yard line and raced all the way to the end zone for his third return TD of the season and a lead the Ravens would not relinquish.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
Leftwich appeared to injure his throwing shoulder in the end zone on that opening touchdown run and had his ribs examined on the sidelines in the fourth quarter. … Pittsburgh rushed for 134 yards on 27 attempts, led by Jonathan Dwyer’s 55 yards on 12 carries. … The Ravens have won 12 straight games against AFC North opponents.
