The Ravens, based on their defense and the strength of the running game, took a 17-7 lead over the Steelers, who arrived at halftime. The Baltimore trio include Lamar Jackson, Gus Edwards and J.K. Dawbins ran 178 yards in the first half, while Ravens’ defense kept Pittsburgh up to 64 yards in total.
In the third play of the game, Lamar Jackson, under pressure from DJ Watt, threw the interception, which saw striker Robert Spillen return 33 yards for a score. As Baltimore joined Miles Boycone for a six-yard touchdown pass in the next possession, Jackson quickly made amends for his early mistakes. The Ravens finished the second quarter with nine games, an 80-yard drive from Edwards to a one-touch touchdown run. Baltimore then set up a 15-play, 60-yard drive and set Justin Tucker’s 51-yard field goal in the final game of the half. The Ravens lost three starters in the first half: attacking players Ronnie Stanley and Diary Phillips with injuries and Matt Juten ending the defense after being sent off for contact with an officer.
