Steelers hanging around

BALTIMORE — Many expected a blowout in Baltimore with Ben Roethlisberger on the sidelines. But that hasn’t been the case.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are hanging around in this rivalry game with the Baltimore Ravens, as a field goal from Jeff Reed cut Pittsburgh's deficit to 14-10 in the third quarter.

Baltimore is playing sloppy, giving up a fumble and a quarterback sack to end its first two drives of the second half. Ravens starting quarterback Joe Flacco was limping after getting sacked by Steelers defensive end Travis Kirschke but returned to the game.

The Ravens are trying to end a three-game losing streak against Pittsburgh.
