Following every Baltimore Ravens game this season, Ryan Chell and I will take to the airwaves Tuesdays on “The Reality Check” on AM1570 WNST.net with a segment known as “The Five Plays That Determined The Game.”
It’s a simple concept. We’ll select five plays from each game that determined the outcome. These five plays will best represent why the Ravens won or lost each game.
This will be our final analysis of the previous game before switching gears towards the next game on the schedule.
Here are the five plays that determined the Ravens’ 22-20 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Thanksgiving night at M&T Bank Stadium…
(Note: not all pictures are always of actual play)
Glenn Clark’s Plays…
5. Shaun Suisham tackled for 12 yard loss on aborted/fake field goal (2nd quarter)
The only “turnover” of the game. Went from three points one way to a short field (and three points) the other way.
4. Heath Miller ruled down at 1 yard line via replay after 20 yard catch from Ben Roethlisberger (4th quarter)
The Steelers were ultimately forced to run more clock and use a timeout after Miller was ruled to have not gotten in.
3. Torrey Smith 7 yard TD catch from Joe Flacco (1st quarter)
The Ravens’ only TD of the game came in a big early spot after a sack.
2. Torrey Smith 54 yard catch from Joe Flacco (1st quarter)
The Ravens didn’t go back to it much, but it was a huge statement early.
1. Chykie Brown defends Ben Roethlisberger pass intended for Emmanuel Sanders on two point conversion (4th quarter)
It wasn’t over until.
