The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Baltimore Ravens 19-16 on Sunday and below is my list of winners and losers from the game. Feel free to add your own in the comments below.
Shaun Suisham – Don’t look now, but Suisham has yet to miss this season. His 42-yarder with time running out won the game.
Lawrence Timmons – Timmons registered 17 total tackles in the game and 11 of them were within three yards of the line of scrimmage. Three of those came in key short-yardage situations.
William Gay – Three total tackles and two key passes defensed earns Gay a spot on the winners list. Yes, Jacoby Jones had him burned for what looked like an easy touchdown, but he stayed with the play and didn’t get called for pass interference to boot.
Le’Veon Bell – 93 yards on 19 carries in a game that the Steelers really needed it. Yes, the blocking was good, but Bell showed great patience and registered several of his yards after first contact.
Emmanuel Sanders – Sanders only had one catch for seven yards, but his 44 yard kickoff return at the end of the game set the offense up in great field position and it resulted in a win.
Derek Moye – Moye had a fantastic leaping catch early in the second quarter, but his drop in the end zone on third down with 10:09 left in the game allowed the Ravens to stick around. He has to make that catch if he expects to see more playing time.
Heath Miller – I hate to put Miller on this list, but his fumble led to three points at the end of the first half and that really changed the momentum of the game. While it was a low throw on the final drive from Ben Roethlisberger, Miller should also be charged with a drop as the ball hit him in the hands.
