The Steelers received the opening kick of the second half, and on third down Roethlisberger threw to Antonio Brown over the middle, and looked to be tackled before the first down. But when John Harbaugh challenged the call, the officials determined Brown wasn’t down, but it was somehow an interception.
Regardless, the Ravens took over in the red-zone, but had to settle for a Justin Tucker field goal to make the score 19-3.
After Chris Boswell missed a 44-yard field goal on Pittsburgh’s following possession, the Ravens got another huge run on the first play of the drive to move them into the red-zone. Two plays later Joe Flacco hit former Steeler Mike Wallace for the first Baltimore touchdown of the game. The Ravens went for two, and Terrance West looked as if he plunged into the endzone to make the score 19-11, but after review it was ruled he was down prior to getting into the endzone, and the score remained 19-9 with 6-minutes left in the third quarter.
After a series of punts, Baltimore has the football in Pittsburgh territory to end the third quarter.
