Ruth's Chris Sizzling Stats: 5 numbers that determined Ravens-Steelers

Ruth's Chris Sizzling Stats: 5 numbers that determined Ravens-Steelers

With a victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday, Baltimore simultaneously snapped a four-game losing streak and vaulting to the top of the AFC North standings.

Here are 5 Ruth's Chris Sizzling Stats that helped to decide the game.

1) 95 -- The yardage of Mike Wallace's touchdown reception on Sunday. It was a large part of his 124 total receiving yards on the day and the play itself was the longest play from scrimmage in the history of the Ravens franchise.

2) 99 -- Penalty yards assessed to the Steelers on Sunday. The impact of the penalties was especially evident in the first half when Pittsburgh was held scoreless.

3) 2.3 -- Yards per rush for Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell on Sunday -- 14 rushes for 32 yards. That is the lowest per-rush total for Bell since 2014 when he rushed for just 2.0 yards per carry, again against Baltimore.

4) 9-9 -- Baltimore's all-time record against Pittsburgh in games where Ben Roethlisberger starts under center. 

5) 7-2 -- Baltimore's record under John Harbaugh when coming off of a bye after Sunday's win over Pittsburgh

Report: Tony Romo agrees to deal with CBS to become highest-paid analyst ever

Report: Tony Romo agrees to deal with CBS to become highest-paid analyst ever

Tony Romo’s transition from NFL quarterback to CBS analyst has been as seamless as anyone could have imagined.

The former face of the Cowboys franchise has garnered acclaim for his acumen in the booth, as he’s displayed an unparalleled vision of the game and ability to convey it in ways that average fans understand. For that, CBS reportedly has rewarded Romo with the richest deal for an NFL analyst in TV history.

Romo and CBS have agreed to a deal of about $17 million a season and “significantly more” than five years, New York Post’s Andrew Marchand reported Friday. The deal more than doubles the previous annual high of $8 million held by John Madden two decades ago.

According to the report, Romo would have been able to speak with other networks in March if a deal had not been reached, and ESPN was prepared to make a serious run at him for their “Monday Night Football” broadcast.

Instead, CBS avoids a bidding war as Romo signs on with a deal that will pay him more annually than he made on his entire rookie deal (three years, nearly $10 million) with the Cowboys.

Romo made just over $3 million last season, his third with CBS.

Ravens' Sam Koch teaches celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay how to punt

Ravens' Sam Koch teaches celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay how to punt

Sam Koch teaching celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay how to punt at M&T Bank Stadium isn't exactly the football highlight you'd expect to find in late February. 

But hey, here we are. 

Ramsay is pretty good at punting based on this clip, though we don't know exactly how many attempts and cuss-word filled rants went on before it. 

His connection to the Ravens? Glad you asked. Ramsay opened a restaurant in Horseshoe Casino Baltimore in 2017. He met a few players and toured the stadium back then, so he's returned to get more action on the field. 

Maybe now Ramsay can teach some Ravens players to make his perfect burger.
