Before halftime in Baltimore, the score remained knotted at 7-7 thanks to the pass pressure of the Ravens.
With just seconds remaining before halftime, Ravens linebacker Kyle Van Noy sacked and stripped Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph in Ravens territory.
The Ravens recovered the ball and prevented the Steelers from scoring before halftime. This play occurred just two snaps after Jadeveon Clowney had a strip-sack, which the Steelers recovered.
Once the Steelers' tight end hit the end zone, the ball entered Ravens territory. With the aid of a heads-up play by kick returner Godwin Igwebuike, Isaiah Likely knotted the game with a touchdown throw of 27 yards.
Igwebuike recovered the dead kick from the Ravens along the sideline, but his feet were out of bounds, therefore the ball was sighted at the 40-yard line.
Their attempts to advance the ball inside the Ravens' 40-yard line were thwarted by sacks, even though Jaylen Warren and Pat Freiermuth were targeted with completions.
Both Clowney's bank account and the Ravens' prospects of winning were boosted by his sack. With nine sacks on the season, he was eligible for a $750,000 bonus, and he now has 9.5 for the year.
The Ravens will get the ball after halftime, and it will be interesting to watch if their offense can maintain its momentum following the Likely touchdown.
