Tuesdays with Romo: Steelers edge Ravens in OT

Another Monday night, another crazy game has come and left us. This was a battle that came down to a Jeff Reed 46-yard field goal in overtime made the difference as the Steelers defeated the Ravens 23-20.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco showed promise in his Monday Night Football debut, passing for 192 yards and one touchdown.

The game saw starting running backs for both sides get knocked out of the game. Ravens running back Le'Ron McClain led all rushers with 63 yards on 16 carries with one touchdown.

The Ravens did an excellent job staying with the Steelers, but Pittsburgh pulled through when they needed to.

The Steelers were down 13-3 with less than five minutes to go in the third quarter when a Ben Roethlisberger pass to Santonio Holmes went for a touchdown. Fifteen seconds later, LaMarr Woodley recovered a fumble and returned it seven yards for a touchdown.

Roethlisberger threw for one touchdown and 192 yards.
