PITTSBURGH -- The faithful in Heinz Field needed a lift and they got one courtesy of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Pittsburgh scored on back-to-back plays from the line of scrimmage when quarterback Ben Roethlisberger connected on a 38-yard touchdown to Santonio Holmes, and Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley returned a Joe Flacco fumble for a score to give the Steelers a 17-13 lead.
Flacco had been very composed up until that first mistake. Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison forced the fumble.
After a quiet two quarters, Heinz Field is rocking.
