In the aftermath of a ridiculously long Week 12, the Steelers collected an important 19-14 win over the Ravens. Coach Mike Tomlin was hardly pleased with his team's performance though, characterizing it as "really junior varsity."
Most often inactive, QB Trace McSorley appeared in just his second NFL game and, though it was just briefly, brought the Ravens back to life with a thrilling 70-yard touchdown to Marquise Brown that stood as the largest highlight of Wednesday's game.
