Steelers Vs. Ravens: Baltimore Leads, 21-7, After Another Pittsburgh Turnover

The Pittsburgh Steelers entered Saturday's playoff game having caused 17 more turnovers than they'd surrendered. In fewer than two quarters, the Baltimore Ravens have coughed two out of them, and as a result, they have taken a 21-7 lead.

Following the Steelers' disastrous mini-drive that ended with a Ravens touchdown, they were forced to punt on their next possession. The Ravens then booted a punt of their own, after which Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall continued to shoulder much of the offensive load.

On his 10th carry of the game, Mendenhall lost the football, and Baltimore emerged from the dog pile with the football. The Ravens took advantage of the Steelers' second turnover of the day, as a 16-yard drive ended with a short touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Todd Heap.

Pittsburgh is looking at a two-touchdown deficit. They are driving with the ball as we near halftime.
