Pittsburgh Steelers Earn Failing Grade for Season Opening Loss Against Baltimore

The anticipation for the Pittsburgh Steelers' season opener against the Baltimore Ravens was high, but the excitement quickly wore off.

It only took the Ravens only three plays to go 66 yards for the opening touchdown, and they would not let up for the rest of the game.

Pittsburgh could not stop Baltimore’s attack. Not even the vaunted run defense could slow Ray Rice and Ricky Williams, who combined for 170 yards and an incredible 5.5 yards per carry average.

The Steelers offense could not keep up either, as they were disrupted by Baltimore’s pass rush all game.

Ben Roethlisberger was sacked four times, three of those by Terrell Suggs, and the Steelers’ offense turned the ball over an incredible seven times.

It will be back to the drawing board for the Steelers, as they have a lot to work on to get ready for their home opener next week.
