Ravens end touchdown drought
By James Walker
BALTIMORE—The Ravens had to hear all week about how poorly they played in the red zone last week in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
Perhaps that served as motivation as the Ravens scored a touchdown on their first drive against the Pittsburgh Steelers to take a 7-0 lead. Backup tailback Willis McGahee scored on a 2-yard run with a key block from Haloti Ngata. Last week Baltimore was 0-for-4 in the red zone and settled for field goals.
The score puts a lot of pressure on the Steelers, who are playing with their third-string quarterback in Dennis Dixon.
