BALTIMORE -- A game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens usually features hard hits, flying helmets and a pivotal play in the final minutes. Hydro Flask Wide Mouth 64 oz Zwart . The clash between these AFC North rivals on Thursday night had all that -- and so much more. A coach on the field during a kick return, two touchdowns erased by replay and an inexplicable botched field goal were among the highlights and lowlights in Baltimores 22-20 Thanksgiving victory. Justin Tucker kicked five field goals, and Baltimore snuffed a conversion pass with 1:03 left to avenge last months loss to their division rivals. After Pittsburgh scored on a 1-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Jerricho Cotchery to make it 22-20, Roethlisbergers 2-point conversion pass slipped through the hands of Emmanuel Sanders, who was screened by Chykie Brown. "Ben gave me a good ball," Sanders said. "It hit my hands, and Ive got to make the play. Its not on him. Its on me." The ensuing onside kick didnt travel the required 10 yards, and that left Baltimore to merely run out the clock to end Pittsburghs three-game winning streak. "Its never over when you play the Steelers, its never over when you play the Ravens. Thats why these games are so great," Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. The victory provided the Ravens (6-6) with their first winning streak since September and pushed the defending Super Bowl champions ahead of the Steelers (5-7) and four other teams in the race for the final wild-card slot in the AFC. "Were in control of our destiny," Harbaugh said. "I feel like were a really good football team; we need to go out and prove it." It was the fifth straight game between the teams decided by three points or fewer. Pittsburgh appeared to score twice in the closing minutes, but on each occasion the touchdown was overturned by a replay. On the first one, tight end Heath Miller was ruled down inside the 1. On the second, running back LeVeon Bell lost his helmet on a crushing tackle by Jimmy Smith and the ball was ruled dead just short of the goal line. The game was delayed while Bell and Smith lay on the ground. Two plays later, Roethlisberger hit a wide-open Cotchery on fourth down. Tucker connected on kicks of 43, 34, 38, 45 and 48 yards after Joe Flacco threw a first-quarter touchdown pass to Torrey Smith. Flacco went 24 for 35 for 251 yards. "There were so many opportunities for us to go out there and get points and win, just big, and put the game away and we didnt do it," Flacco said. "In the back of your mind youre thinking, Man, this is going to catch up to us." Roethlisberger was 28 for 44 for 257 yards and two TDs. Baltimore didnt get a sack and didnt force a turnover, but played well enough to bottle up Roethlisberger and the Steelers for the majority of the game. Down 19-7, the Steelers mounted a 60-yard drive aided by two penalties and got a 1-yard touchdown run by Bell to close to 19-14 with 9:32 to go. It was only the second rushing TD allowed by the Ravens this season. Tucker answered with a field goal, but Roethlisberger mounted a 79-yard drive to set the stage for the hectic finish. The Ravens opened the second half with a 52-yard drive that ended in a field goal for a 13-0 lead. Smith caught two passes on third down to keep the drive alive. Pittsburgh answered with an 80-yard march that began with a 21-yard completion from Roethlisberger to Miller, and included a 43-yard run by Bell to the Baltimore 8. On third down, Sanders got free in the end zone for an 8-yard score -- only the fourth touchdown allowed by the Ravens in six home games. Jacoby Jones took the ensuing kickoff 73 yards to the Pittsburgh 27, setting up a 38-yard field goal that made it 16-7. Jones sprinted down the left side and nearly ran into Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, who stepped out of the way at the last second. "I always watch the returns on the Jumbotron. It provides a better perspective for me," Tomlin said. "I lost my placement as he broke free and saw at the last second how close I was to the field of play." Jones said: "I dont blame other peoples actions. I still should have scored." After a Pittsburgh punt, Flacco escaped pressure to complete a 34-yard pass to Jones, and Tucker put the Ravens up by 12 with 13:59 remaining. That would be Baltimores final score, and it proved to be just enough for a much-needed victory. Baltimore limited the Steelers to 98 yards in taking a 10-0 halftime lead. Baltimore moved 71 yards on its first drive to take a 7-0 lead on a 7-yard touchdown pass to Smith. The play came after Smith hauled in a 54-yard pass from Flacco to the Pittsburgh 1. There were three scuffles after the whistle in the first quarter, but peace was restored before things got out of hand. Pittsburghs third drive ended with a curious, aborted field-goal try. Shaun Suisham was poised to kick a 50-yarder, but his approach began well before the snap and he didnt follow through. Holder Mat McBriar flipped an impromptu lateral to Suisham, who was tackled for a 12-yard loss. "Our timing was really off," Suisham said. The Ravens then took advantage of a 26-yard pass interference call against Ike Taylor to go up 10-0. Notes: The Steelers reported several injuries, including Bell (concussion), DE Brett Keisel (foot), G Kelvin Beachum (knee), OT Mike Adams (ankle), G David DeCastro (foot), OL Fernando Velasco (ankle). ...

And, just for good measure, lets say the lottery team finishes the game short-handed because two starters come down with the very same injury.Dominic Cork thinks the ECB are ‘wrong’ to instruct Alastair Cook to wear a new approved helmet. The England captain reluctantly ditched his old headwear in favour of an ECB-compliant helmet for Essexs County Championship match with Sussex at Hove, during which he scored one in the first innings and an unbeaten 127 in the second.Former England all-rounder Cork feels players should make their own choice with regards to helmets and says they could even sign a waiver if they choose not to adopt the ECB-preferred model. Former England captain Nasser Hussain thinks Alastair Cook should be able to decide which style of helmet he wears I think it is wrong for the ECB to be telling the England captain that he has to change to his visor, Cork told Sky Sports News HQ.I get the safety element that is needed for children and academy players but it should be down to the player - if he feels it is right to go down his route, then he should. If itt means they have to sign a disclaimer, then great. Hydro Flask Wide Mouth 64 oz Munt. .I just find it hard that the ECB are trying to tell county cricketers and England cricketers that they have to change a visor or put in one that doesnt move. Cook is 36 runs shy of 10,000 in Test matches Cooks century at Hove was his second of the County Championship campaign, with the left-hander also striking 105 against Gloucestershire in his first game of the season.Hampshires James Vince, meanwhile, scored 119 against defending champions Yorkshire at Headingley this week and Cork reckons his former county colleague should now join Cook in the England Test team.Vince is a must, Cork said of the 25-year-old, who played once for England in the recent World T20 in India, making 22 from 18 balls against Afghanistan. County team of the week Cook and Vince make this weeks XI I have been calling for him to be in the England side in all forms for some time as he is a sensational player.He has matured as a person and as a batsman and I think now is the time to give him the responsibility of batting five or six for England in Test cricket and let him show he is the real deal.Watch Englands three-Test series with Sri Lanka, live on Sky Sports, starting with the first Test at Headingley from 10am on Thursday, May 19.
