“Huge win. Any time you play that team, that rivalry, that’s a battle, and that’s what that game is. That was kind of the perfect Ravens – Steelers game. Huge win for us. Especially at home against that team. Great bounceback by everybody. Just so proud of everybody.” — Ben. Photo: Steelers.

#GAMEOVER. @steelers QB @_BigBen7 shares a funny moment with @Ravens tackle and former @steelers Albert Villanueva at the 50 after the #Steelers defeated the #Ravens 20-19 here at Heinz Field.

“I told guys you can go against teams sometimes that are better than you or equal in terms of skill. What’s going to separate you is your heart, and tonight we had guys that showed a lot of heart.’ — Ben, specifically mentioning Diontae Johnson, John Leglue & Benny Snell.

“You should always savor moments like this. God has blessed me in an amazing way that I can throw a football like not many people in the world can and guys can run and catch and do things that not many people can.”— Ben.

Wait, how many? Ben now has 10 game-winning drives against the Ravens – the most by a quarterback against any one team.

Not a bad night. 1st @steelers game and you get @_BigBen7 gloves and a wink from Ben. What a way to become a Steelers fan.

“My focus is on Minnesota and what we have to do to get ready. I will address it after the season. I have always been a one-game-at-a-time, one-season-at-a-time person and I am going to stay that way.” — Ben, on the report by ESPN’s “Insider” that he would be retiring after this season.
