This Day In Steelers History

October 20, 2013

The Steelers season was hanging in the balance after getting off to an 0-4 start before their bye week. Coming out of the bye the Steelers beat the Jets before returning home for a must-win against division foe, Baltimore.

The Steelers jumped out to an early lead on a 3 yard touchdown pass to Heath Miller.

It was all about the leg of Shaun Suisham after that. Suisham went kick for kick with Ravens kicker Justin Tucker to give the Steelers a 16-9 advantage late into the fourth quarter.

The lead evaporated when Dallas Clark caught a touchdown pass from Joe Flacco with two minutes left in the game. Tuckers extra point tied the game, and it was Ben Roethlisberger’s turn to be the hero.

Roethlisberger drove the Steelers down the field before handing over the game to Suisham. He drilled his fourth field goal from 42 yards out to win the game. Suisham had kicked four field goals the week before in their win at New York. The winning kick gave him a perfect 14 for 14 start to the season.
