six ties before Will Barton followed
Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork. Air Max España .com) - Make it a dozen touchdown passes in two games for Ben Roethlisberger. Its been a resurgence for his Pittsburgh Steelers offense since their lackluster Week 2 showing in Baltimore, when they didnt tally any. Roethlisberger tossed six touchdown passes and the Steelers routed the Ravens 43-23 on Sunday night. Roethlisbergers 12 touchdown passes in consecutive weeks is the most in NFL history. Big Ben went 40-of-49 for 522 yards -- the third most in a regulation game in NFL history -- and six touchdowns last Sunday, making him the first ever quarterback with two 500-plus yard games. He followed that performance up by going 25-of-37 for 340 yards. It was a big one for us, Roethlisberger said. We were slow starting but made plays down the stretch. Roethlisbergers 30-game stretch with a TD pass came to a halt in Week 2 when the Ravens thumped the Steelers 26-6. But that seems like centuries ago. Pittsburgh has scored 94 points in its last two games and topped the 50-point plateau for the first time since 1984 in last Sundays 51-34 victory over Indianapolis. Antonio Brown caught 11 passes for 144 yards and a touchdown, while rookie Martavis Bryant hauled in three receptions for 44 yards and two scores for the Steelers (6-3), who have won three in a row. Joe Flacco was 30-of-45 for 303 yards with two touchdowns and an interception for Baltimore (5-4), which has dropped consecutive games and sit in last place in the AFC North. The Steelers failed to pick up a first down on each of their first three drives, moved the chains a trio of times before being sacked three straight snaps on their fourth touch, but posted three consecutive touchdowns on their final three series of the opening half. A pair of Ravens turnovers on three snaps led to two of those scores in the middle stages of the second. Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats stripped Adam Taliaferro from behind and Brice McCain scooped up the fumble and returned it 26 yards to the Baltimore 27. Roethlisberger flipped a back-shoulder throw in the front left corner of the end zone to LeVeon Bell lined up in the slot, with Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley covering him on 3rd-and-goal for a 5-yard score. Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison hit Flacco as he threw from the blind side and Jason Worilds, who dropped back in coverage on the zone blitz, hauled in the easy interception to put the ball at the Baltimore 30. Roethlisberger hit Bryant on a post corner route in the front left corner of the end zone to make it 14-7 Steelers with 5:30 left until the break. When you put guys in that part of the field, they are going to have a chance to make some big plays, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. Justin Tucker nailed a 46-yard field goal on Baltimores ensuing march, but Roethlisberger lofted a beautifully thrown pass right into the waiting arms of Markus Wheaton along the right sideline for a 47-yard score a possession later. The extra-point snap was bobble by Brad Wing, but he was able to compose himself and hit Matt Spaeth in the right flat for two points. The third quarter went scoreless, but Brown caught a 54-yard TD pass early in the fourth. Brown hauled in an out route on Ravens cornerback Chykie Brown along the right sideline, cut back into the middle and stiff armed safety Will Hill before racing past the rest of the secondary for his touchdown. Jacoby Jones returned the ensuing kickoff 108 yards to cut the gap to 29-17. Bryants 18-yard TD catch, Crockett Gilmores 1-yard TD reception -- Baltimores two-point try following Gillmores score was unsuccessful -- and Spaeths 33-yard score capped the scoring. Earlier, following a 25-yard Jones punt return, Flacco hit a streaking Torrey Smith along the right sideline to open the scoring just over five minutes into the game.

Aldridge scored 28 points in his third game back from injury and the Trail Blazers extended their winning streak to three games with a 105-98 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday night. "Whether hes scoring or not, just getting him touches has a big effect on the game, has a big effect on how the defence reads our offence," Blazers centre Robin Lopez said of Aldridge. Reserve Mo Williams added 17 points and Wesley Mathews had 15 for the Blazers, who avoided a three-game sweep in the season series. "LA coming back has brought us back to what we do and how we do it," Williams said. "With LA, we know what we need to do and where we need to go, where we get our shots, and when to be aggressive." Portland opened a two-game lead over Golden State for the fifth place in the Western Conference playoff race and pulled within 2 1/2 games of No. 4 Houston with seven games remaining. Zach Randolph scored 21 points and Marc Gasol had 20 for the Grizzlies, who lost back-to-back games for the first time since Feb. 3-5 and dropped a half-game behind idle Dallas for the Wests eighth and final playoff berth. The Blazers shot 52.0 per cent (39 of 75) and had five players score in double figures. Aldridge, who missed seven games with a back contusion, was the catalyst on offence, making 10 of 20 shots from the field and going 8 for 8 at the free-throw line. The Grizzlies were determined to play Aldridge straight up defensively and not double, as they had in their two wins over Portland. Memphis looked mostly to Randolph, their 6-foot-9, 260-pound power forward, to go toe-to-toe with the Blazers All-Star. "LaMarcus is their horse," Randolph said. "Hes what makes them go, so anytime youve got your best player out there, it makes a difference." Portland dominated the second quarter, making 10 of 16 shots (62.5 per cent) and getting eight points from both Aldridge and Williams to extend a two-point lead at the end of the first quarter to a 57-45 halftime advantage. "We knew exactly what they were going to run," Grizzlies guard Tony Allen said. "It was a grreat game plan defensively, and they executed. Nike Air Max Rebajas. " Mathews and Aldridge combined for 13 points during a first quarter that had eight lead changes and six ties before Will Barton followed his own miss to score and give the Blazers a 25-23 lead. The Grizzlies, making their third stop on a five-game swing, made 3 of 14 shots in the first six minutes of the second quarter and were outscored 16-6 as the Blazers extended the lead to 41-29 on two free throws by Aldridge with 5:59 left in the half. "We matched Memphis physicality," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "Our shooting lineup gave us some separation in the first half. We got a lot of good effort off the bench, too." Mike Conleys 3-pointer pulled the Grizzlies within 43-34, but the Blazers reeled off six quick points to open their largest lead of the second quarter, going up 49-34 when Damian Lillard set up Thomas Robinson for a transition layup with 3:58 to play in the half. Lillard, held scoreless on 0-for-3 shooting in the first half, hit his first four shots of the second half, including a 3-pointer that pushed Portlands lead to 78-60. Trailing 91-70 early in the fourth, the Grizzlies mounted one final push and cut the Blazers lead to 103-96 on James Johnsons 3-pointer from the left corner with 1:12 to play. Gasols basket pulled Memphis within 103-98 before Lillard made two free throws with 6 seconds left to close out the scoring. "Portland came out more aggressive and played with more energy," Grizzlies coach David Joerger said. "They have a ton of playmakers and they made us chase them all around the floor." NOTES: The Grizzlies are 16-1 record in road games in which they hold teams to fewer than 90 points and are now 4-15 record when allowing more than 90 points. . Portlands 105 points were the most against Memphis during all of March. The Grizzlies entered Sundays game leading the West in points allowed at 94.0 points per game. . Lopez became the fourth Blazer to record 300 offensive rebounds in a season, joining Kermit Washington, Buck Williams and Chris Dudley. . After making all five of his free throws, Matthews has made 36 consecutive foul shots dating to March 14 at New Orleans.
