I don't see how the Pittsburgh Steelers can beat the Ravens without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
After writing that before the game, Baltimore writer Mike Preston had to write this:
This was an embarrassing loss to an ancient QB.
The Ravens were fortunate that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger didn't play Sunday because the score might have been worse.
It's a tacit admission of something we all know -- had Ben played two weeks ago, the Ravens would be 8-4, tied with the Steelers and down a tiebreaker with a decidedly tougher schedule to play the last four games.
This is how close we are to having a really incredible season. We still may.
