In yet another incredible divisional match up, the Baltimore Ravens outlasted the Pittsburgh Steelers and got a crucial overtime 23-20 win at Heinz Field.

Justin Tucker kicked the winning field goal in a game that was dominated by the running games of Justin Forsett and Le'Veon Bell.

Guess who's back

Forsett was one of the stars of last season with his rushing performances being the driving force behind the Ravens play-off run.

In the first three games of this season though he has struggled to replicate the form he showed last year... until tonight.

Forsett ran for 150 yards but couldn't find the touchdown that he arguably deserved despite his performance being crucial to the win.

Forsett vs Bell was a great watch with Bell rushing for 129 yards, having 21 receiving yards and one rushing touchdown proved just how important he will be in the absence of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

The game came down to the kickers though as the Steelers kicker Josh Scobee missed two field goals in the game leading to the Steelers attempting to go for it on fourth down in overtime - a decision they would probably come to regret.

Justin Tucker was the exact opposite though for Baltimore as he scored all three of his field goals including the game winner.

Prior to kick off though, all the focus was on one man.

Vick's first chance

With starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger out for several weeks for Pittsburgh, care of the team fell to veteran back-up Michael Vick.

The former Philadelphia Eagle showed signs of the skills that he made his name with but once half time passed, he was much less effective.

Vick through for 124 yards and one touchdown, a solid performance but he was only able to lead the Steelers to seven points in the entirety of the second half and overtime.

Next up for Vick and the Steelers is a visit to the San Diego Chargers which should provide another tough test for the now 2-2 team.
