My Prediction

The Ravens score first on a touchdown pass to Torrey Smith on their first drive of the game. The Steelers get a field goal on their first drive to make it 7-3. The Ravens get a field goal of their own to make the score 10-3 going into the 2nd quarter. The Steelers tie the game up in the 2nd quarter on a touchdown run from Le’Veon Bell. The Ravens score a field goal before the half ends to make it 13-10 going into halftime. The 3rd quarter starts with a turnover from the Steelers giving the Ravens the ball on the 40 yard line. The Ravens take advantage of the great field position scoring a touchdown to increase their lead to 10. The Steelers get another field goal on their next drive and the score going into the 4th quarter is 20-13 Ravens on top. The 4th quarter starts with a field goal for the Ravens increasing their lead back to 10. The Steelers then score a touchdown to cut the Ravens lead down to 3 with 6 minutes left in the game. The Ravens get a field goal with 2 minutes left to increase their lead to 6. The Steelers have one last chance and drive down the field but with 10 seconds left the paass to the endzone is batted down and the Ravens hold on for the win.
