Ravens Rally Past Steelers, 23-20, in Overtime
Justin Tucker succeeded after Josh Scobee failed. Tucker kicked the game-tying and game-winning field goals and the Ravens beat the Steelers — and Scobee — 23-20 in overtime in Pittsburgh on Thursday night.
Tucker’s 52-yard boot with 5:08 left in OT gave Baltimore (1-3) its first win of the 2015 season and spoiled Michael Vick’s first start for the Steelers in place of the injured Ben Roethlisberger.
The Ravens forced overtime when quarterback Joe Flacco led them on a 45-yard drive that began with just over a minute left and resulted in Tucker’s game-tying 42-yard field goal as time expired.
While Tucker helped his team to victory, Pittsburgh kicker Scobee missed fourth quarter field goals from 49 and 41 yards that could have potentially put the game away for the Steelers (2-2). When Vick drove Pittsburgh to the Ravens’ 33 yard-line in overtime, Steelers’ head coach Mike Tomlin opted to have his QB attempt a pass to Antonio Brown to convert a fourth-and-1 rather than let Scobee attempt a field goal from 50 yards away.
Vick completed 19 of 26 passes for 124 yards and a touchdown. Pittsburgh’s LeVeon Bell carried 22 times for 129 yards and a score.
Flacco completed 20 of 33 passes for 189 yards for the Ravens. Teammate Justin Forsett carried 27 times for 150 yards.
