Baltimore vs. Steelers: Instant Analysis, fourth quarter

The opportunities were there, and the Steelers finally put together 13:30 of good football; but the inability of the defense to get off the field on third (or fourth) down, combined with a poorly thrown pass to Mewelde Moore on third down of the Steelers' second-to-last possession cracked the door for Baltimore.

One final note:  Steelers fans everywhere please don't bother blaming the officials.  Walt Coleman and his crew simply are not responsible for this loss.  Inconsistent play, and an inability of the Pittsburgh defensive secondary to stop Baltimore on third down is.
