Tackle the catch?

The Ravens had only 55 offensive plays vs. 77 run by the Steelers.

Yet, playing without both of their starting offensive tackles, the Ravens offense put together scoring drives of 80, 70, 57 and 69 yards.

The long drives suggest Pittsburgh's defensive scheme of the corners playing off the ball and tackling the catch didn't work.

When Baltimore was on defense, playing with a secondary that has started seven different cornerbacks and four safeties this season, the Ravens limited the Steelers to three field goals and one touchdown.
