Steeling A Win In Pittsburgh
The first win of the season always feels great, but having that win be on national television in Pittsburgh feels phenomenal. Ravens fans everywhere are experiencing a renewed energy towards the season, and rightfully so! Besides our talent and our depth, this game showed how mentally tough our team is.
It also showed that we could get a little lucky from time to time:

I don't have an official stat on this, but I believe Ben Roethlisberger was shown on screen approximately eleven billion times during our game. I get that television networks want to squeeze the most hatred out of our rivalry, but it seemed a little excessive. Do we really need to see Big Ben's reaction during every timeout? The Steelers are punting - QUICK! CUT TO BEN, CUT TO BEN!
