The Baltimore Ravens floundered on offense most of the night in their 13-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football. They went three-and-out on half of their possessions and other than two long pass plays, never really threatened to put enough points on the board to extend the lead that they ended up surrendering at the end of the game for one of the most heartbreaking defeats in recent memory.
They did, however, score both times they entered the Red Zone, once on a sweet 14 yard TD pass from Joe Flacco to Anquan Boldin and the other on a 24 yard field goal by placekicker Billy Cundiff. However, had they been able to turn that three-pointer into seven, the outcome might have not been in doubt at the end. Only one other time did they get close and that was on the Flacco to Donte Stallworth bomb that set them up in decent field position at the Steelers 27 yard line. However, a penalty and a ill-timed sack later and the Ravens were forced to punt.
Four times the Ravens have lost this season and all four times they had the lead in the fourth quarter. In the future, the Ravens know that more trips into the Red Zone, the more chance they have at winning these close contests.
