Even when either the Baltimore Ravens or the Pittsburgh Steelers are having a down year, their two annual games against each other are typically close, physical contests.
This was not quite the case Sunday. The Ravens held the Steelers to 69 total yards before their first scoring drive midway through the fourth quarter, en route to a 21-14 victory. The final score was not indicative of how competitive the game was.
The Ravens defense looked like one of the elite Ravens defenses of the early 2000’s as they were able to contain Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense through three and a half quarters. On offense, the Ravens’ biggest play of the game came on a 95-yard strike from Joe Flacco to former Steeler, Mike Wallace. The Ravens also scored on a blocked punt return, making it 21-0 before Pittsburgh could even crack triple digits of total yardage.
It was no surprised that fans of both teams had a lot to say during this game. Take a look at the minute-by-minute social recap of Steelers vs. Ravens, courtesy of Social Delta.
Here are some of the best tweets during the biggest moments in Steelers vs. Ravens:

Joe Flacco is way to experienced to make that mistake in the RZ. Never throw that ball. Ever.

Just an awful decision by Joe Flacco. Throws across body and is picked off by Burns. Two drives, two opps for points that they blew.

Flacco to Wallace for a 95-Yard TD
The Joe Flacco elite-o-meter just broke after the switch turned so much

Ravens Block Punt; Go Up 21-0
Ben Roethlisberger looks like a guy that was rushed back from injury. He’s 34. Beat up.
Blocked punt for TD, Ravens up 20-0. Lights out

Great celebration leap from Golden Tate, too. NFL will probably suspend him for life.

The only thing missing was the MSU band to catch Golden Tate on that dive.
