In a game that was over by halftime, the Steelers beat the hapless Baltimore Ravens 38-7 to take control of the AFC North. QB Ben Roethlisberger threw for 5 touchdowns, tying a team and Monday Night Football record, though all 5 came in the first half. The game was won on turnovers and the biggest culprit of the night was LB James Harrison who was a man possessed on defense with an interception, 2 forced fumbles, hurries, sacks, robbery, assault, and any other crime you can think of. The Ravens looked like they wanted to leave by midway thru the 2nd Quarter as the pouring rain and strong defense just got to them.

Besides the game, the Steelers celebrated 75 years of history with the top people from their history. On hand were legends most teams would only see at an all-star event. One Monday Night announcer likened it to old-timers day at Yankee Stadium.
