most memorable moments in Ravens-Steelers history - Lisa RedmondLardarius Webb’s
punt return touchdown in the 4th quarter of the 2011 playoffs would have been

interceptions. Week 4 NFL picks, predictions - David SteeleAccording to Football
Outsiders analytics, the Steelers defense ranks 19th in defensive DVOA. The

- Gil BrandtA divisional win on the road in Pittsburgh would obviously help the
Ravens odds of snapping their current postseason drought. Week 3 NFL defensive
line rankings - Austin GayleThe Ravens have missed the disruptive presence of
Willie Henry on the interior, unfortunately he has still not returned to
practice following hernia surgery. The Baltimore Ravens swarmed around their new
defensive coordinator, Don "Wink" Martindale, celebrating after a game that will
go down in the record books.Getting 11 sacks along with a shutout against the
man Martindale replaced makes this mark even sweeter.Za'Darius Smith had a
career-high three sacks as the Ravens piled up the franchise-record Sunday in
routing the Tennessee Titans 21-0 in the rain, just missing the NFL record
shared by five teams by one.Baltimore coach John Harbaugh called it an "historic
defensive performance."The Ravens (4-2) smothered Tennessee, allowing just 106
yards of offense while they turned Marcus Mariota's day into the worst of his
NFL career. Eight different Ravens sacked Mariota, and four got their first sack
this season at his expense. The Titans never got closer to the end zone than the
Ravens 37, each time pushed back with yet another sack."We want to be something
special out there Baltimore Ravens

," Ravens linebacker Matthew Judon said. "For Wink,
it's great to go against his predecessor, and he stepped up and we came through
and pitched a shutout. You don't ever talk about unicorns while you're doing it,
but we got it done. We got it done for him, and we celebrated after."Martindale
was promoted to defensive coordinator when Dean Pees retired after last season.
His retirement lasted less than a month with first-year coach Mike Vrabel luring
Pees to join him as the Titans' defensive coordinator.Asked about Pees, Smith
only said that the coordinator told him at his pro day at Kentucky that the
linebacker would be a Raven."Love him to death, but hey, we won tonight, so
we're going to leave it at that," Smith said with a smile.The Titans (3-3) had
not been shut out at home since the franchise relocated to Tennessee."That's the
headline: The 'Tennessee Titans didn't do nearly enough on all levels to win the
football game,'" Vrabel said. "Or even make it competitive."Some things to know
about the Ravens and Titans:LEWIS' INJURYRavens left guard Alex Lewis hurt his
neck and went down within the first minute of the fourth quarter. He was
strapped to a backboard and carted off the field to Vanderbilt University
Medical Center for a CT scan. The lineman was moving his extremities, and
Harbaugh said the Ravens were optimistic and would update Lewis' status after
results were available.DOMINANT PERFORMANCENot only did the defense smother the
Titans, Joe Flacco helped the Ravens roll up 361 yards and hold the ball for
more than 37 minutes. They converted 12 of 17 third downs (71 percent) in a game
that felt much more lopsided. Flacco threw for 238 yards and a touchdown, while
Alex Collins ran for two TDs.TD DROUGHTThe Titans now have gone eight straight
quarters without a TD, and this was their third game already this season without
a touchdown. The franchise had not been shut out since Nov. 28 Baltimore Ravens
, 2010, in a 20-0 loss in Houston. ... This is the first
season that offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur has called plays, and the Titans
have a Pro Bowl left tackle in Taylor Lewan, two Heisman Trophy winners in
Mariota and running back Derrick Henry, and right tackle Jack Conklin was an All
Pro as a rookie.HOME SWEET HOMEThe Ravens wrapped up their season-long
three-game road swing by going 2-1. Now they head home to host New Orleans in a
stretch with four of the next five at home."We know the upcoming challenge,"
Harbaugh said. "We know who we're playing next Sunday, coming into our place and
what they're about, and how good they are."TITANS ISSUESNot only was Mariota
sacked the most in his career, it was the most sacks allowed by the Titans since
giving up seven on Nov. 1, 2015, in Houston. Coach Ken Whisenhunt was fired two
days later. These Titans came in having allowed only nine sacks through five
games."No one's going to feel sorry for us," Mariota said. "We've just got to go
up there and work and grind and get better and find ways to win."Follow Teresa
