Baltimore’s head coach John Harbaugh and the Ravens finally earned some good news Thursday night, after its 23-20 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Baltimore is finally in the win column, ending a three-game losing streak. Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco managed the game, tossing for 189 yards with one touchdown and an interception. Running back Justin Forsett totaled 156 yards rushing on 5.6 yards per attempt (27 carries).
Former Alabama standout C.J. Mosley had a solid outing at linebacker against Pittsburgh, accounting for six total tackles, including one for loss. Ravens’ linebacker Courtney Upshaw had three total tackles. Baltimore limited the Steelers 167 rushing yards on 33 carries.
The Ravens will return home to M&T Bank Stadium next week for a third straight AFC North Division game against Cleveland.
