It was 29 days ago that the Pittsburgh Steelers were 4-1, fresh of a victory against the New York Jets.

The next day, Republican hopeful Donald Trump twirled a Terrible Towel during a rally in Ambridge.

Since that point, the Steelers have lost their last three games.

Against the Ravens, former Steelers player Mike Wallace turned a short Joe Flacco pass into a 95 yard score in the first quarter that the Steelers could not recover from.

This was likely the only play Wallace made since leaving the Steelers for Miami’s money after the 2012 season.

Two more field goals, a blocked punt for a touchdown, and a two-point conversion brought the Steelers to a .500 record for the year so far.

Ben Roethlisberger, playing in his first game since suffering a knee injury in Miami, threw two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to bring it within 7 points.

The ensuing onside kick by Chris Boswell was botched, ensuring the Ravens victory.

Next weekend, the Steelers have a 4:25pm matchup with bitter rivals, the Dallas Cowboys at Heinz Field.
