The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Baltimore Ravens last night in a thrilling game that gave the Steelers sole possession of the AFC North. It truly was a battle that lived up to expectations and even more.
Ben Roethlisberger came into Sunday night's game already banged up with a bad foot and left in worse shape with a broken nose. Regardless of the pain he has gone through, Big Ben has found a way to be productive.
As tough as Roethlisberger has proven himself to be, it was the Steeler defense that got the job done. Troy Polamalu forced a Joe Flacco fumble late in the fourth quarter that was picked up and returned 18 yards by LaMarr Woodley deep into Ravens territory.
Pittsburgh's offense took advantage and got into the end zone, which proved to be the game-winning TD.
There are still four games left in the season, but the win allows the Steelers to control their own destiny the rest of the way.
Here are five things to take away from Sunday night's game.
