I was watching. Division games are always a tricky deal, no matter what the record is, can't count on anything and it went down to the wire.

Ravens had the game in control until the refs got involved

That pass interference call. QB's know they can tell a receiver to go deep for a bomb so the refs can bail them out with a flag

The momentum had already shifted from the flag and TD which put the pressure on the Ravens offense to respond and then they went 3 and out and you know the rest

I admit that i DID Not like that call. It certainly turned momentum around.. but in the end, the Ravens had the lead with under a minute to go and lost.

Honestly, did you not EXPECT Pittsburgh to drive down and score after the Ravens took their final lead. I just knew there was Too Much time on the clock. I know you can't take TDs for granted but geez.. just get the first down and use some clock!

The Ravens defense was playing like the Steelers didn't want the TD and would settle for the FG. I was like. "where is the aggressiveness on defense?" Don;t they know this game is for the AFC central?

That was a joke. The Ravens put up these great defensive rankings on paper all year but this game proved that was overrated. The Jimmy Smith injury hurt but there was no killer instinct in those last 12 minutes to stop the Steelers. All year there's been a ton of criticism on their offense, but they played their asses off and made the plays.

I know its hindsight but the Ravens should've managed their last offensive drive to give the Steelers less time to drive for a potential FG. Under two minutes and in the red zone, I thought they were doing a good job running the ball. Jyzusuk should've tried going down at the 5 making it first and goal. At that point, you know Ben/Bell/Brown are unstoppable and their defense couldn't stop them at that point. You should've played to be the last one to score.
