The Baltimore Ravens with a franchise best 14-2 record concluding the season with a 28-10 victory over division rival Pittsburgh Steelers. The win eliminated the Steelers from playoff contention.

Since the Ravens already clinched the number one seed in the AFC playoffs, the team rested most of their starters for this game.

Robert Griffin III, former Washington Redskins quarterback, filled in for Lamar Jackson in the starting lineup his first start in three years. He finished the game on 11/21 passing for 96 yards no touchdowns and an interception.

In this game, the Ravens set a new single season record for rushing yards in a season by a team with 3,296 total yards breaking the record of the 1978 New England Patriots. In addition, they became the first team to average 200 passing yards and 200 rushing yards per game.

Ravens running back ran for 130 yards on 21 attempts while Justice Hill scored the only offensive touchdown for the Ravens via eight-yard touchdown run.

The Ravens defense scored on a fumble recovery by safety Jordan Richards.

The bulk of the scoring came from kicker Justin Tucker who made four field goals in the game.

The Baltimore Ravens will be idle next week as they await the winners of the wild card games next week. They will play the lowest seed remaining from wild card weekend.
