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

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

 

Baltimore took a look on Sunday to New York, which included a big game from Odell Beckham Jr. Here are 5 Ruth's Chris Sizzling Stats that determined the game.

- 222 -- Receiving yards by Odell Beckham, Jr. It is the second-highest total by any Giants WR in team history. The most? Del Shofner's 269 vs. Washington in 1962, per ESPN Stats and Info.

- 98.3 -- Rushing yards per game by Terrance West over the past three games, all in the absence of Justin Forsett. It is the best stretch for a Ravens running back since Justin Forsett averaged 111 yards per game over a three-game stretch from Oct. 1 through Oct. 18 of 2015.

- 403 -- Passing yards by Giants quarterback Eli Manning. Manning has thrown for exactly one 400+ yard game per season every year since 2012. Looks like this might be his one.

- 8-8 -- Baltimore’s end-of-season record the last time the team dropped to 3-3 -- back in 2013.  

- 2012 -- Terrell Suggs reportedly tore his biceps on Sunday. He suffered the same injury in 2012, but vowed to play through it. He said back then on Twitter that the team would make the Super Bowl. They did, and won.
