Steelers Fumble OT Chance; Lose to Ravens, 26-23



PITTSBURGH — Despite spotting the Baltimore Ravens an early 10-point lead and losing starting quarterback Mason Rudolph to a concussion, the Pittsburgh Steelers had a chance to convert an upset over the Baltimore Ravens in overtime on Sunday.

Instead, they fumbled it away.

Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster fumbled the ball as the Steelers were driving on the second possession of overtime, giving the Ravens all the field position they’d need for Justin Tucker to convert a game-winning, 46-yard field goal.

Tucker also connected to send the game to overtime with a long field goal with 10 seconds remaining after the Steelers had taken the lead thanks to a Chris Boswell field goal after a long drive led by third-string quarterback Devlin Hodges.

Hodges was in the game because starter Mason Rudolph was knocked out of the game with a concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit by Ravens safety Earl Thomas in the third quarter. Hodges was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

The Steelers also lost wide receiver James Washington to an injury in the game.
