Missed Chances Hurt the Steelers Against the Ravens

PITTSBURGH ( Associated Press) — Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky was extremely aggressive with the ball and he knows it.

The Steelers lost rookie Kenny Pickett to concussion protocol in the first quarter, and when Trubisky entered the game, he repeatedly drove Pittsburgh’s offense closer to Baltimore’s promised territory. But three costly interceptions on Sunday helped the Ravens win 16–14.

“Coming off the bench, I just wanted to come in and be the spark that lit the team,” Trubisky said. “I think we did a good job moving the ball, but I have to save it, that’s clear.”

Initially, Puckett was cleared to return to play after being evaluated after a sack by Ravens linebacker Roquan Smith on the first drive of the game. He returned for one more series before being placed in concussion protocol and ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Trubisky said, “We faced a lot of adversity today, but if they had taken better care of the ball, they would have given us a chance to win.”

Pittsburgh fell behind 10–0 early, but Trubisky entered the game and moved the offense with a scoring drive. He connected with George Pickens on a 42-yard play and Najee Harris finished two plays later with a 1-yard run.

After the touchdown, three of Pittsburgh’s next four drives ended with Trubisky, two of which were inside the Ravens’ 25-yard line, and Baltimore blocked a field goal on the fifth drive.
