The Pittsburgh Steelers maintained their unbeaten record in the NFL this season with a 19-14 win over the depleted Baltimore Ravens.

The Steelers became the 13th team to start a season 11-0 in the Super Bowl era after a scrappy win at Heinz Field.

Ben Roethlisberger completed 36 of 51 passes for 266 yards, a touchdown and an interception for Pittsburgh.

Depleted after a coronavirus outbreak, with star Lamar Jackson among those sidelined, Baltimore struggled, slipping to 6-5 and further behind their rivals, while they are also adrift of the Cleveland Browns (8-3) in the AFC North.

Taking Jackson’s place, Robert Griffin III was seven of 12 for 33 yards and an interception, while he rushed for 68 yards before being replaced by Trace McSorley.

The win meant the Steelers swept the Ravens for just a second time in 12 seasons.

Rescheduled three times after a coronavirus outbreak at the Ravens, the Week 12 clash finally went ahead on Wednesday.

After early turnovers by both teams, it was fitting the opening score came via a pick six.

Joe Haden intercepted a Griffin pass and took it 14 yards to put the Steelers ahead.

Another mistake handed the Ravens a chance, though, after Ray-Ray McCloud fumbled, the error punished as Gus Edwards rushed in for a TD.

But neither team was able to get much going offensively, with the Steelers taking a 12-7 half-time lead following two Chris Boswell field goals.

The Ravens finished the first half with 11 net passing yards. Only the Denver Broncos (zero) against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday had fewer first-half passing yards in a game this season, as per NFL Research.

Pittsburgh extended their lead early in the fourth, Roethlisberger finding JuJu Smith-Schuster to complete a 12-play, 61-yard drive.

After replacing Griffin, McSorley combined with Marquise Brown for 70 yards with three minutes remaining to give the Ravens hope.

But Roethlisberger and James Washington combined for a crucial play for the Steelers to keep them unbeaten.
