Game Facts

Ravens facts

Starting running back Ray Rice was released by the Ravens on Monday after new video was released of him striking then-fiancée Janay Palmer in an Atlantic City hotel elevator.

Rice was also suspended indefinitely from the NFL on Monday. He had been serving a two-game suspension previously handed down.

In Rice's absence, Justin Forsett ran for 70 yards on 11 carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1. Bernard Pierce ran for just 14 yards on six carries.

Baltimore's loss to Cincinnati in the season opener was the team's first loss to the Bengals at home since 2009.

The Ravens and Steelers have split the last four games played at Baltimore.

Baltimore's 22-20 win over Pittsburgh at home last season marked its lowest margin of victory ever over the Steelers.

Starting cornerback Lardarius Webb missed the season opener with the same back injury that kept him out of the preseason.

In his Ravens debut last week, former Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith had 118 receiving yards, including an 80-yard touchdown pass.

Baltimore held the Bengals to just 3.0 yards per carry in Week 1.

Kicker Justin Tucker missed one of his two field goal attempts in the season opener. He's missed just three attempts in each of the past two seasons.

Pittsburgh led Cleveland 27-3 last week before the Browns scored 24 straight second-half points. Shaun Suisham's game-winning field goal was the only time the Steelers scored after halftime.

Receiver Antonio Brown was flagged for unnecessary roughness for kicking Browns punter Spencer Lanning in the face during a return.

Brown also had 116 receiving yards and a touchdown last week. He is coming off the best season of his career when he had 110 catches for 1,499 yards and eight touchdowns last season.

After being charged with marijuana possession last month, running back Le'Veon Bell had 109 yards on 21 carries. LeGarrette Blount had four carries for six yards and one touchdown.
