On third and nine, Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco dropped back to pass but was hurried by linebacker Lamar Woodley, resulting in a tipped pass that was intercepted by fellow linebacker James Farrior. The Steelers got the ball back at the Baltimore eight yard line, however, they were unable to convert the excellent field position and were forced to settle for a 26 yard field goal by Jeff Reed to take the lead 3-0.

Baltimore came back on the following drive moving the ball 64 yards to the Steelers’ nine yard line, only to tie the game at 3-3.

Pittsburgh would re-take the lead, 6-3, off another Reed field goal on the following drive.
