Steelers rally to beat Ravens 13-9, win AFC North
A risky play by Ravens punt returner Jim Leonhard produced the game's first points. On the final play of the first quarter, Leonhard picked up a bouncing kick in a crowd at the Baltimore 11 and scooted 46 yards down the right sideline. Joe Flacco then completed a 24-yard pass to Todd Heap, and Stover followed with a field goal.

Jim Leonhard returned the boot 46 yards to the Pittsburgh 43, and Flacco found Todd Heap in traffic down the middle of the field for a 24-yard gain to set up Matt Stover's 28-yard field goal at the 12:30 mark of the second quarter.

Jim Leonhard's two punt returns are the most conspicuous plays, an 18-yarder and a 46-yarder that led to a field goal, but Sam Koch's punts have helped the Ravens keep an edge in the field position battle in the first quarter.
