PITTSBURGH, PA —
It was over when...
With 8 minutes left, the Ravens successfully converted a field goal to put the Ravens up 21-10.
The Pittsburgh steelers did not allow a 100 yard rusher for 34 consecutive games, Newly signed back Dominic Rhodes gained 106 yards on 22 carries including a 37 yard touchdown run.
With Dick Lebeau ill and Ike Taylor in a holdout, the Steelers gave up 180 yards in the first half, most by air.
In the Ravens first posession James Harrison sacked Flacco, they then gained a 12 yard run but then threw a near 50 yard touchdown as William Gay got burnt by Dominick Hixon.
William Gay kept getting burned and Joe Burnett couldn't cover Todd Heap, which could be the story of the 2009 Steelers with the absence of Ike Taylor. The Steelers made a game of it in the fourth quarter, but the Ravens dominated the Steelers in this one.
Dominque Foxworth completley shutdown Santonio Holmes as Ben Roethlisberger found it hard to find targets.
It doesn't get much easier as the Steelers travel to Boston to face the Patriots.
The Steelers had not lost an opening season game since 2002 which they lost to the Patriots 30-14
