It also shows some smart, quick decision-making by Collins, who could've easily run the play as it was designed and maybe gained a yard or two, but instead chose to change things up. But it seems the Ravens' late-season defensive collapse, culminating with the Steelers' 21-point fourth quarter on Christmas Day, informed the Ravens off-season decision-making.

"I sucked", Flacco said.

I can't lie and say I'm not rooting for Alex Collins to take the starting job from the other running backs on the team.

Brown caught 10 passes and Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw three touchdown passes in the game. Here are some highlights from the game along with the three stars.

This is good news for Todd Haley and an offense that needs to get more players involved. "We're playing really well as a unit, and I think that's what's helping us".

The Steelers did give up a 50-yard run in this game, but outside of that play, the run defense was pretty solid, allowing 82 yards on 15 carries.

"It's no secret that they have owned us here", Roethlisberger said. "As a running back, I'm foaming at the mouth". With the Ravens, he was behind West, Allen and Jeremy Langford on the depth chart. The Ravens offensive line is patched together due to injuries, but these two guys are dependable and need to keep Flacco clean.

"He wears the defense down and works the clock", Antonio Brown said. It was clear to the 10-year veteran when he took the podium following the team's 26-9 loss in Week 4.

"But I was prepared and I was ready", he said. In his first game, he played nine snaps with the Baltimore defense.

The Ravens have scored only seven touchdowns in four games, Flacco has six interceptions compared to four TD passes, and points are becoming increasingly hard to come by.

"He was in there for certain plays, and I chose to stick with him", Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. Dante Fowler Jr. comes at Collins completely uncontested, as this was obviously a play where Collins was supposed to run to the right (that's where the entire offensive line was headed).

-Pittsburgh's pass rush kept quarterback Joe Flacco on his heals for most of the game. On the flip side, Rams quarterback Jared Goff now ranks first in the National Football League in yards per attempt (10.09).

"All NFL favorites with popular teams, like the Patriots, Cowboys, Steelers, Falcons and Chiefs are going to attract public money", said Salmons. "The leash isn't going to be long on that". When you come in here and drop the ball however many times he has dropped it, I'm not going to tolerate it. "We're trying to be conscious of social issues, we're also trying to be very respectful of the flag, and how it's being demonstrated is taking a much larger stage than actions on the field". "Definitely something that I don't want to let happen again because I feel like I let my teammates down". I'm no math whiz, but that puts them on pace for 60 sacks this season.
