The Ravens’ second drive of the game ended in a punt, and the Steelers continued to have their way with the Ravens’ defense. Le’Veon Bell and company marched down the field with ease with Bell punching it in from the 1-yard line to extend the Steelers’ lead. The Boswell point-after made the score 14-0 early in the 2nd quarter.
Baltimore wasn’t going to go down without a fight, and Flacco connected with Chris Moore on the next drive for a big 30-yard touchdown reception to move cut into Pittsburgh’s lead 14-7.
On their next drive, Pittsburgh moved the ball with ease, again, but once in Baltimore territory yards came at a premium. While Boswell had been only called on for point-after kicks to this point, Mike Tomlin put him on the field for a 52-yard field, which he nailed giving the Steelers a 17-7 lead.
Keith Butler’s defense continued to struggle tackling the ball carrier, and Baltimore marched down the field on their next possession, thanks largely to Alex Collins, before Collins had a nifty run for a touchdown. The Tucker point-after made the score 17-14. However, with just over a minute left and two timeouts, Roethlisberger moved the Steelers inside Boswell’s field goal range, and his kick sent both teams into halftime with the Steelers clinging to a 20-14 lead.
