Steelers vs. Ravens 2013 score update: Baltimore leads Pittsburgh 10-0 at halftime

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

At halftime of their Thanksgiving showdown, the Ravens lead the Steelers, 10-0.

The Raven are up, 10-0, at halftime against the Steelers on Thursday night, following two quarters of feisty play with several scuffles throughout the game.

The Ravens got off to a solid start, with their defense forcing the Steelers to go on a quick three-and-out and then getting a touchdown out of Torrey Smith on the offense's first drive of the game. Smith also has 65 receiving yards on the half.

A botched fake field attempt by the Steelers put the Ravens in great field position, following a somewhat crafty drive by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger that included one of slowest first-down runs in the history of the NFL:

The great field positioning allowed the Ravens to get a 43-yard field goal out of Justin Tucker. The kick brought the Baltimore lead to 10-0 late in the second quarter.

The Ravens walked into halftime with a surprising chorus of boos for not attempting to move into field goal position on their final drive of the half, despite a two-score lead.
