Joe Flacco throws 3 TDs as Ravens rough up Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers
BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens had just beaten their bitter rivals in record-breaking fashion, and some of the players felt inclined to put some perspective on their 35-7 manhandling of the defending AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers.Although their overwhelming victory Sunday provided a bit of payback for January's playoff loss -- and don't think the Ravens did not remember that game -- coach John Harbaugh and his players have turned their attention toward this season.
New King Of The North?
The Ravens found a way to solve the Steelers' vaunted 3-4 base defense, shredding Pittsburgh through the air and on the ground.
