Shaun Suisham’s fourth field goal of the game, a 42-yarder on the last play of the game Sunday, propelled the Pittsburgh Steelers to their second straight victory, a 19-16 home win over the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

With the win and Cleveland’s 31-13 loss to Green Bay, the Steelers (2-4) moved to within a half-game of second place in the AFC North.

Suisham also kicked field goals of 34, 28 and 38 yards.  The only Pittsburgh touchdown was recorded in the first quarter on a three-yard shovel pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Heath Miller.

After having been held for most of the contest to three field goals, the Ravens had tied the game at 16-16 with 1:57 remaining on Joe Flacco’s pass to Dallas Clark.  Two key completions from Roethlisberger to Antonio Brown helped set up the winning kick.

Roethlisberger completed 17-0f-23 passes for 160 yards with no interceptions.  Brown caught six passes for 50 yards.  Le’Veon Bell more than doubled his season rushing yardage total with 93 yards on the ground.

Flacco went 24-for-34 for 215 yards with no interceptions.  The Ravens were held to just 82 rushing yards, with Ray Rice picking up 45 of those yards.

The Steelers will travel to Oakland to face the Raiders (2-4) at 4:05 PM (EDT) next Sunday.
