Pittsburgh Steelers: 5 Lessons from Loss to Ravens

In a game that had all sorts of playoff implications, the Baltimore Ravens managed to squeak out a win in Pittsburgh Sunday night.

The win gives the Ravens a stranglehold on the AFC North, a two-game lead and a win over their closest pursuers, the Steelers.

The game was lacking any real offense on either side, and it was hard to tell if it was simply two defenses playing great, or if the offenses had genuine issues.

In Baltimore, they have been talking about the offensive struggles of the Ravens during away games for weeks.

For the Steelers, things are a little different. Missing their franchise quarterback, they seemed unable to find any rhythm, the play-calling seemed to be questionable at times, and their backup quarterback, Byron Leftwich, appeared injured and unable to make the throws he normally makes with ease.

But, I'm getting ahead of myself.

These two teams will meet again in two weeks, but we need to have a look at what we saw last night before we can look ahead.
