                             Heinz Field (63,224)

   PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh’s three-game winning streak was snapped
as it was eliminated from playoff contention with a 31-7 loss to the visiting
Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field. The Steelers, who had won five of their
previous six games, fell to 7-8 on the year while the Ravens, who already
clinched the AFC North title, improved to 12-3.
   The Steelers were outgained 359-251 in total offense in the game and
converted just 2-of-14 (14%) third-down attempts. They were swept by
the Ravens in the season series for the first time in the series history.
   Baltimore took a 14-0 lead in the first half thanks to a pair of touchdown
passes by QB Steve McNair, one to WR Mark Clayton and the second to
TE Daniel Wilcox.
   However, Pittsburgh trimmed the gap to 14-7 just before the half as QB
Ben Roethlisberger hit TE Heath Miller on a one-yard touchdown
pass with seven seconds remaining. It was Miller’s fifth touchdown
reception of the year. The score was set up by an interception from CB
Deshea Townsend.
   When it seemed the Steelers gained some momentum entering the half,
Baltimore responded with a touchdown on its first drive of the second
half, a third touchdown pass by McNair (to Demetrius Williams).
   CB Bryant McFadden intercepted McNair late in the third quarter and
the Steelers put together a long drive that started at their own two-yard
line. However, after marching down to the Ravens’ three-yard line, RB
Willie Parker fumbled and Baltimore recovered, virtually ending any
chance of a Pittsburgh comeback.
   The Ravens added 10 points in the fourth quarter, including a 26-yard
field goal by K Matt Stover and a one-yard touchdown run by RB Jamal
Lewis.
   Roethlisberger finished 15-of-31 for 156 yards with one touchdown
and two interceptions. He also added a team-high 33 yards rushing,
including a 20-yarder.
   WR Hines Ward led Pittsburgh with eight catches for 79 yards (9.9
avg.). WR Santonio Holmes added five catches for 90 yards (18.0
avg.).
   S Troy Polamalu, who returned to action after missing three games
with a knee injury, DE Aaron Smith and LB James Farrior all posted a
team-high (tied) eight tackles.

    PRO (39-2/3-0): Signed with Pittsburgh on Sept. 8, 2006…a no-nonsense, downhill runner…looking to rebound from an injury
that derailed his 2005 season just as it began to take off…was on his way to a storybook performance last October, having already
punched in two first-half touchdowns against New Orleans, when a broken ankle abruptly halted his season in its tracks…possesses
tailback speed in a traditional fullback frame…has the ability to pop a long run once he gets out into the open field…can be
especially effective in the fourth quarter when defenders are weary and he brings his 250-pound body and fresh legs off the
bench…a big man who runs with power, also has quick feet and good speed…a north-south type runner who also can get outside
and become tough to tackle in the open field…prior to the 2005 injury, a serious break that would’ve ended any player’s season,
was trying to improve in every aspect of his game and it showed early in ‘05…altered his eating and workout habits, attempting to do
more to prevent injuries…staked his own claim to being a starting-caliber runner in the NFL with an impressive performance late in
2004…in his first professional start under the bright lights of Monday Night Football, ran for 178 yards and a score on 19 carries vs.
the Rams…his production ranked third highest among league runners making their initial start over the prior 20 years, along with
being the fifth-best one-game total in Green Bay Packers history…originally selected in the fourth round of the 2002 draft (135th
overall) with a free agency compensatory pick.
    2005 (5-1): Started the year as Green Bay’s No. 2 running back before suffering a broken ankle vs. New Orleans (Oct. 9)…was
placed on injured reserve the next day, after having surgery earlier that morning…wound up playing in five games with one
start…finished with 30 carries for 105 yards and two touchdowns, two catches for three yards, and 10 kickoff returns for 189 yards
