In case you missed it, or just want to see it again (like I do) here are some NFL Video highlights from last nights Steelers/Ravens game.
This was the game the Steelers needed to put together against the Ravens. The Ravens really physically dominated the Steelers in both games last year and the Steelers returned the favor last night.
Anyone who watched the game knows that James Harrison and Ben Roethlisberger had fantastic games last night. Harrison had one of the most dominating games by a Linebacker I've seen in a long time and Big Ben threw 5 TDs in the first half—to tie a team record for most TDs in a single game.
I was really impressed with the way the RBs blocked last night. Last year the RBs played horribly in the pass protection game. They were constantly missing the blitzers and just getting trucked over. Everyone knows the Ravens are hard to run the ball on and last night was no exception. So, if you can't run the ball you want to make sure your RBs are picking up the blitzes. To highlight a specific play, Parker had a great block on a blitzing Ray Lewis to allow Big Ben to complete his second TD of the night (which went to Santonio Holmes.)
The team was definitely ready to play last night. Now it's time for Tomlin to get the team prepared for the Browns on Sunday. This is a another big game and concludes a 3 game streak of AFC North opponents. The Steelers are 6-2 and the Browns are in 2nd place of the AFC North at 5-3. In order to keep pace with the Colts & Patriots, the Steelers must win this game.
