BALTIMORE (AP) Adalius Thomas returned a Ben Roethlisberger fumble 57 yards for a score and Todd Heap caught a 20-yard touchdown as the Baltimore Ravens won their fifth straight 27-0 over Pittsburgh.

The Ravens pressured Roethlisberger for virtually the entire game sacking him 9 times. The Steelers were held to 36 yards in the decisive 1st half. The 9 sacks for minus-73 yards matched a Ravens franchise record.

Baltimore improves to 9-2 and maintains a 3-game lead over Cincinnati in the AFC North.

Ravens quarterback Steve McNair completed 18-24 passes for 140 yards before being replaced by Kyle Boller with just over ten minutes remaining.

The defending Super Bowl-champion Steelers are 4-7.
