BALTIMORE (AP) -- Their 0-2 start is now almost forgotten. After another impressive showing Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers stand alone atop the AFC North.
Yes, I think so. As long as the Steelers can get the lead and give QB Tommy Maddox an opportunity to keep the defense off balance, they'll be OK. Defensively, getting LB Kendrell Bell back has been a huge lift. The Steelers are playing much better defensively, and the D is their catalyst. As long as they continue to pressure the quarterback and get some turnovers, they'll be a tough team to beat -- especially in the AFC North, because it's not as strong as, say, the AFC West.
Question on the Ravens: Could this loss essentially put an end to Baltimore's playoff hopes?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Tommy Maddox has helped the Steelers win five of their last six.
Zereoue's first score was the longest TD run of his career. ... The Steelers have scored at least 28 points in each of Maddox's four starts. ... The crowd of 68,638 tied the largest in Ravens history.
