In an attempt to set the tone defensively, Baltimore won the opening coin toss and elected to defer the ball until the second half, so they could get to Dixon right off the bat, resulting in Pittsburgh’s first drive of the game ending in a quick three and out.

Baltimore’s first drive started at their 27 yard line and after a one yard run by running back Ray Rice, quarterback Joe Flacco connected on four straight pass plays totaling 49 yards before Rice broke for a 19 yard run down to the Steelers’ four yard line. Two plays later, running back Willis McGahee scored on a two yard run up the middle for a Ravens’ team high eighth touchdown on the year. Ravens led 7-0 after driving down the field on nine plays for 73 yards.

On their second possession, Dixon and the Steelers started the drive on their 27 yard line. On first down, Dixon completed his first pass of the game to Hines Ward for six yards. After two running plays totaling 10 yards and a first down, Dixon dropped back for a pass on third down, only to scramble up the middle for 31 yards. However, Steelers’ center Justin Hartwig got called for offensive holding, wiping out the 31 yard scramble, forcing the Steelers to punt yet again....
