In a game that came down to its last few minutes, the Pittsburgh Steelers came back from trailing 10-3 at halftime to defeat the Baltimore Ravens 17-10 in front of the hometown fans at Acrisure Stadium. The team moved to 3-2 with the win. 

Kenny Pickett led the team down the field for its game winning drive, which culminated in a 41 yard touchdown pass to George Pickens to give the Steelers a 14-10 lead. The Steelers would tack on another field goal after a forced fumble to ice the game. Pickett finished the day 18 for 32 with 224 yards and a touchdown. 

The story of the day, however, was the Steelers defense led by defensive player of the year candidate TJ Watt. They kept Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson in check and out of the end zone, forcing a fumble and interception on the day. 

The Steelers have earned a much deserved bye week after the victory. They’ll look to pick up another big win as they head to Los Angeles on October 22nd to face off against the 2-3 Rams.
