  • PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham stood in a euphoric locker room, game ball tucked firmly under his left arm and his teams once calamitous season inching its way back toward respectability. Sean Taylor Womens Jersey . Not a bad day for a guy who insists hes just doing his job. Suishams 42-yard field goal, his fourth of the day, lifted Steelers to a 19-16 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Seemingly out of it after stumbling through a winless September, Pittsburgh (2-4) has won two straight. "Thats what were supposed to do," Suisham said. "Hopefully we can start stacking wins here." Ben Roethlisberger completed 17 of 23 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown. He also hit Antonio Brown twice on Pittsburghs final drive, putting Suisham well within range to win it. "We count on him to make it every time," Roethlisberger said. Why wouldnt he? Suisham is a perfect 14 of 14 this season. He drilled four field goals in last weeks victory over the New York Jets that snapped the Steelers out of their worst start in 45 years. He nailed four more on a day one of the NFLs more intense rivalries played like a slightly watered down version of its former self. The bold-faced names that defined the series -- Ray Lewis, Ed Reed and James Harrison among them -- are either retired or playing elsewhere. The animosity was dialed down a bit, perhaps because there was something more important than simple AFC North supremacy. Both teams entered the day chasing first-place Cincinnati. While Pittsburghs win only widened the gap between the Bengals (5-2) and the rest of the division, the Steelers remain confident theyre on their way back from the brink. "At 0-4, a lot of people counted us out and we still have an opportunity to turn this thing around," linebacker LaMarr Woodley said. "Right now we just have to keep marching in the right direction." Joe Flacco passed for 215 yards and a touchdown for Baltimore (3-4) but couldnt stop the defending Super Bowl champions from losing for the third time in their last four games. "We cant kid ourselves anymore, weve got a lot of work to do," Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "Were used to things going a little different for us, but that being said weve got to be able to adjust on the fly and play football." The Ravens trailed all day but finally ran the Steelers down when Flacco guided a 16-play, 73-yard drive that ended when the quarterback hit Dallas Clark in the back of the end zone to tie the game at 16 with 1:58 to go. The Steelers nearly went back in front immediately when Emmanuel Sanders picked up the ensuing kickoff in the back of the end zone and raced down the right sideline all the way to the end zone. Officials, however, ruled he stepped out at the Pittsburgh 37. In the end, it didnt matter. Roethlisberger led the Steelers 39 yards in seven plays, finding Brown for gains of 11 and 13 yards. Pittsburgh then drained the clock until there were just 3 seconds remaining. Rather than call a timeout to force Suisham to think about it, the Ravens let the kicker go through his normal routine. The ball sailed right down the middle for Suishams fourth game-winning boot in the last two years. "I didnt feel like it would be a smart thing to do because the field was a little ruddy there and it gave them a little more time to prepare," Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. Instead, the Ravens head into a bye week figuring out how to come through when things get tight. Their last three losses have come by a combined eight points. "I still have a lot of confidence," Flacco said. "Its going to be a dog fight just like it always is in this division ... We still have a lot of games to go." So do the Steelers, who seem to be finding themselves on offence. Rookie running back LeVeon Bell ran for a season-high 93 yards on 19 carries as the leagues 31st-ranked rushing attack piled up 141 yards on the ground, Pittsburghs highest total in nearly a year. Having a wide-open playbook certainly helped. Offensive co-ordinator Todd Haley found a variety of ways to get the ball in Bells hands, even lining him up in the wildcat formation with Roethlisberger split out as a wide receiver. "I told the (defensive back) I was going deep next time," Roethlisberger joked. Bell churned for 61 yards in the first half alone as the Steelers build a 10-6 lead. Roethlisberger hit Heath Miller for a 3-yard touchdown pass, though Miller handed the Ravens a field goal late in the half with a rare fumble near midfield. NOTES: Pittsburgh lost RT Marcus Gilbert with a quadriceps injury in the first quarter ... The Ravens called an onside kick in the third quarter trailing 13-9 but were called for two penalties on the play. The Steelers kicked a field goal to push their lead to 16-9 ... The comeback was the 28th game-winning drive in the fourth quarter in Roethlisbergers career. Sam Huff Womens Jersey .James scored 29 points, including 16 in the first quarter, and the Cleveland Cavaliers broke a four-game losing streak with a 106-74 win over the Orlando Magic on Monday night. Bryce Love Youth Jersey . The Raptors had an early deadline Sunday, a dreaded afternoon game, and they left the bulk of their work until the last minute, as theyve done so many times before. IRVING, Texas -- Canadian Mike Weir hasnt had a top-25 finish since 2010. After the second round of the Byron Nelson Championship Friday, hes closer to breaking that drought. Weir, of Brights Grove, Ont., and fellow Canadian Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., are part of an eight-player group tied at 6-under 134, two strokes behind leader Brendon Todd, heading into Saturdays third round. "The work Ive been doing over the years is to get back into this position, and now Ive got to see if I can handle it and get momentum going and play well on the weekend," said the 44-year-old Weir. "Its been difficult to play and not be in contention." Also at 6 under after Friday were Martin Kaymer -- five days after winning The Players Championship -- Paul Casey, who finished near the top of the leaderboard after a record back nine, Morgan Hoffmann, who had had bogey-free 66s, Tim Herron (66), Charles Howell III (66) and Marc Leishman (68). Casey was over par Friday before matching the PGA Tour record for the best score on a back nine, an 8-under 27 with six birdies and an eagle. That was part of his 7-under 63 that was the low round of the day, though he could never remember such a good nine. "On par-3 courses, I think," Casey said. "I like to think I would be good at shooting low rounds of golf through the past, but certainly nothing like that." When Casey made the turn, he was coming off a three-putt at No. 9, his third bogey of the day. The 36-year-old Englishman, whose only PGA Tour victory was five years ago, was then 2 over for the tournament, even after making a 9-foot eagle putt on the par-5 seventh hole. "I think its easier when your back is up against the wall, like I was today" Casey said. "I was backed into a corner and had to do something. A little shift in, lets say, attitude, and a little shift in goals." Kaymer had his second consecutive 67, and has been in the 60s for all six of his rounds at TPC Four Seasons. The German won at TPC Sawgrass on Sunday. "If you had a good week, obviously you can take a lot into the next week. You play a little bit more free, a little bit more relaxed," Kaymer said. "Its a new week, and I want to do as good as possibble here. Sean Taylor Redskins Jersey. quot; For the second time in five years, Todd is back on the PGA Tour after getting his card back through the Web.com Tour. He ended his round with back-to-back birdies to wrap up a round of 64 in which he needed only 22 putts. That included the 6-footer at the par-3 17th after his tee shot rolled just past the hole. "Its nice to put two under-par rounds together before the cut. Thats been a challenge for me this year," Todd said. "I was patient today." Todd, who started with six consecutiveF pars before four birdies in a five-hole stretch, first got to 7 under with a 12-foot birdie at the par-3 13th hole, but gave that stroke back at the par-4 15th when he hit his first two shots into the rough and had his only bogey. Peter Hanson was leading after a first-round 65, but was eight strokes worse Friday and dropped back to a tie for 25th at 2 under. David Duval, only a stroke off the lead after an opening 66 that included birdies on four of his last five holes, shot a 76 Friday and missed the cut by a stroke at 2-over 142. The former No. 1 player, now 890th in the world 15 years later, had six bogeys over his last 11 holes and had only one birdie during his second round. Casey made a 6 1/2-foot birdie putt at No. 10. His drive at the short par-4 11th was short of the greenside bunker, and from an awkward stance hit his approach over the pin onto the fringe before making a 24-foot birdie. He also had birdies at Nos. 13-15, a 32-foot putt for an eagle-3 at the 16th, and closed with another birdie. The overall nine-hole scoring record is Corey Pavins 8-under 26 on the front nine in the first round of the 2006 U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee in 2006. Seven others have had 27s on nine holes, the last Nick Watney in the third round of the 2011 AT&T National. Scottie Scheffler, a 17-year-old amateur from Dallas, shot a 68 with six birdies and four bogeys to make the cut at 1-under 139. Jordan Spieth, now 20 and the eighth-ranked player in the world, made the Nelson cut at ages 16 and 17 when he too was a top-ranked junior player from Dallas playing on a sponsor exemption. Spieth was 3 under after a 67 Friday. Defending Nelson champion Sang-Moon Bae missed the cut after rounds of 73 and 74. Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
