Ravens lose in crazy ending with Pittsburgh 19-14

Baltimore, MD- The Ravens scored a touchdown with under four minutes left in regulation to make it a one possession game, but the Steelers ran out the clock to pull out the victory.

Robert Griffin III got the start, because Lamar Jackson was in quarantine after he tested positive for COVID-19. The Ravens' offense started the first half against the Pittsburgh Steelers very slow. The pass protection had no answer for the Steelers' defensive ends. RG III struggled to get the ball down the field to his playmakers and had trouble stepping into throws. RG III finished the half with only 22 yards through the air.

Despite the lackluster offense, Baltimore's defense kept the game close. The Steelers were in the redzone four times and the Ravens' defense did not allow a touchdown. At the end of the first half, Baltimore was trailing Pittsburgh, 12-7.

In the second half, the Ravens' defense stiffened up and did not allow the Steelers wide receivers to get past them. They played physical and got Pittsburgh off the field on third down conversions. However, the Steelers hit the home run score at the start of the fourth quarter to put the Ravens in a deep hole, 19-7.

After a quarterback switch, the Ravens put in Trace McSorley, who made the game interesting late in the quarter. With under four minutes left in the game, McSorley threw a touchdown pass to Hollywood Brown, to cut the Steelers' lead to a one possession game, 19-14.

The Ravens could not stop the Steelers' on third and short with the game on the line and walked away with another heartbreaking loss in the division.

RG III completed 7 out of 12 for 33 yards through the air, rushed for 68 yards on the ground, and had one interception.

McSorley finished with 77 yards and 1 touchdown.
