Antonio Brown throws temper tantrum after Ben Roethlisberger mistake

Joe Flacco

When the Steelers and Ravens get together, especially for a game at M&T Bank Stadium, there usually are two things that end up being true.

Collins had a game-long 50-yard run, which led to the Ravens' only touchdown, but Harbaugh said the running back would be on a short leash in the future. The Steelers amassed 173 rushing yards in the game, which helped them maintain the majority of possession time in the 26-9 victory.

The most physical team always wins in Steelers-Ravens football. While Bell can be criticized for his training camp holdout and slow return to form, if the game against the Ravens is the standard of performance the Steelers can expect from Bell, then he can be easily forgiven.

Le'Veon Bell had 144 yards on 35 carries with two touchdowns.

Bell said this week he wanted to return to that "special player" whom the Steelers rode into the playoffs a year ago. Predictably, the Ravens came out on the opening offensive drive and handed the ball off to Chris Collins but the Steelers sniffed out the run on the very next play as Ryan Shazier stuffed it for a loss. All of those games look like losses for Baltimore if the Ravens can't find a way to generate points to keep up with their opponents. "That was one of those opportunities we had to make a big play and we didn't do it".

After a wave of protest last week, the number of National Football League players sitting out the anthem fell dramatically on Sunday. If the NFL Network is part of your cable package, you can also live stream the game through the NFL app on XBox, Apple TV, or Roku device on your TV. "I realized right then this rivalry was something serious". This team is limited because of the offensive line.

"It starts with me", said Flacco, who went 31 for 49 for 235 yards and two interceptions against Pittsburgh (3-1).

In the offseason, Baltimore seemed to revamp the secondary with the sole interest of containing the Steelers star wide receivers.

"He wears the defense down and works the clock", Antonio Brown said.

"We've made strides this offseason of building our team to get in that situation and win the game", Weddle said.

Baltimore receiver Mike Wallace had a pair of costly drops, including a pass that would have picked up at least 30 yards in the second quarter.

Like for Flacco, September is summer for Bell, who also missed the preseason because he didn't sign his franchise tag tender until the beginning of this month. They grappled with both problems this week and, they hope, set them both aside. The Gatorade jug paid for it, as it was tossed, but Brown should have been aware that "Big Ben" said this week that he'd take what the defense gave him instead of turning Brown into his only target. "We just have to move on and be ready".
