Steelers need help after stunning loss

Related News/Archive

BALTIMORE — Getting beaten by the archrival Ravens was bad enough. Losing control of their playoff destiny made things even worse for the Steelers.

Pittsburgh needs some help to get to the postseason after falling to Baltimore for the second time this season.

"We didn't handle the business in the stadium today, so we're left to look around at other stadiums," coach Mike Tomlin said after Pittsburgh's three-game winning streak was halted. "Such is life this time of year when you don't do what you're supposed to do."

The Steelers fell a game behind the Chiefs, who clinched a spot, and Jets in the AFC wild card race.

Making his seventh career start — the first with Baltimore — Ryan Mallett went 28 for 41 for a career-high 274 yards and a touchdown. Signed by the Ravens on Dec. 15, he was the fourth quarterback to start for Baltimore in six weeks.

"Getting the start was awesome," he said. "Getting a win was even better."
