Ravens receiver Michael Campanaro flips into the end zone to score in the first quarter against the Steelers for a 7-0 lead. The Ravens come back from 20-7 down to win 23-20 in overtime.

PITTSBURGH — Justin Tucker kicked a 52-yard field goal with 5:13 left in overtime to cap a Ravens comeback from 13 points down for a 23-20 win Thursday over the Steelers.

Tucker tied the score at 20 with a 42-yarder with seven seconds left as Baltimore scored the last 13 points in regulation. The comeback began with a 15-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Kamar Aiken with 7:32 left in the third quarter. Tucker hit a 40-yarder with 10:19 left in the fourth to make the score 20-17.

Pittsburgh's Josh Scobee missed two field goals in the fourth quarter that would have sealed a win, from 49 and 41 yards. He's 6-of-10 on field goals this season.

Flacco was 20-of-33 for 189 yards and a TD, and Justin Forsett rushed for 150 yards as the Ravens avoided falling to 0-4.

For the Steelers, Michael Vick, starting for injured Ben Roethlisberger, was 19-of-26 for 124 yards and a touchdown, a 9-yard pass to Darrius Heyward-Bey in the third. Le'Veon Bell rushed 22 times for 124 yards and a touchdown, an 11-yard run in the second.

Mariota wins monthly honor

NASHVILLE — Questions about whether Marcus Mariota could take a snap under center or run a huddle seem almost silly now. So, too, does the idea that the Titans rookie quarterback would be a runner needing time to learn how to throw in the NFL.

Mariota — the second overall pick in this year's draft after the Bucs took Jameis Winston — already has put up impressive numbers while writing himself into some record books and earning honors as the NFL's offensive rookie of the month for September, announced Thursday.

Mariota has opened with a bang, tying the NFL mark for most touchdown passes in a player's first three games with eight. Only Aaron Rodgers (10), Tom Brady (nine) and Carson Palmer (nine) have more touchdown passes for the season than Mariota, who ranks seventh with a passer rating of 109.2 and eighth with 833 yards passing.

The Titans 1-2 at their bye week, the same start as a year ago when they finished 2-14.

Penalties record: Through the season's first three weeks, 884 penalties had been called (those declined and enforced), believed to be the most penalties ever in the first three weeks, the league said.

Bears: The team hopes to get quarterback Jay Cutler back for Sunday's game against the Raiders but is preparing to go with Jimmy Clausen again if he is not ready. Cutler practiced on a limited basis for the second consecutive day after sitting out Week 3's 26-0 loss at Seattle because of a pulled hamstring.

Colts: Quarterback Andrew Luck was listed as a limited participant in practice for the second straight day with a sore right shoulder. He still was expected to start Sunday against Jacksonville.

Eagles: The team is not using the word "Redskins" on the cover of its weekly media guide. Just "Washington" is used for the opponent Sunday. Through the Eagles' first three games, the opponents on the media guide cover were referred to as the Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys and New York Jets. Director of media relations Derek Boyko had no comment.

Giants: Receiver Victor Cruz will not play Sunday against the Bills, and coach Tom Coughlin offered no time line for when he could return from a calf injury.

Jets: Wide receiver Eric Decker participated in some team drills for the first time since spraining his left knee nearly two weeks ago. His status remained uncertain for Sunday against the Jets in London. Cornerback Darrelle Revis was limited for the second straight day with a sore hamstring.

Ravens: Rookie receiver Breshad Perriman is sidelined indefinitely after arthroscopic surgery this week to repair a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
