Also for the first time, the Steelers have three receivers with 70 receptions: Ward (87), Holmes (78) and TE Heath Miller (71).
--Although shown as a break for the Steelers on TV highlights, Ben Roethlisberger said he knew the Ravens were getting penalized when he threw deep to Mike Wallace with two minutes left, a pass that was intercepted but nullified by a penalty.
"I saw the ref throw the flag," Roethlisberger said. "I thought I might as well throw it deep."
--Mike Tomlin revealed an odd conversation he had with one of the officials over a disputed non-fumble by Baltimore's Derrick Mason.
"I was told that I could challenge it, but if I did, it would be ruled as an incomplete pass," Tomlin said. "That's what I was told. I'm still trying to figure that out."
