Ravens 23, Steelers 20

Joe Flacco hit Torrey Smith for a 26-yard touchdown pass with 8 seconds to go, lifting Baltimore past host Pittsburgh.

Flacco finished with 300 yards passing and Baltimore swept the season series from the rival Steelers (6-3) for the first time since 2006.

The Steelers appeared to be in control after rallying from a 10-point deficit to take a 20-16 lead with less than 5 minutes to go when Ben Roethlisberger hit Mike Wallace for a 25-yard score.
