PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — On Sunday Steelers cornerback Keenan Lewis once again elevated his game at a critical time, but this time it wasn’t enough in a 13-10 loss to the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field.

“They got that punt return…that was a big play…and we just didn’t capitalize when we needed to at times,” Lewis said. “But we’re going to put it together, and we’ll see those guys in two weeks.”

Although Anquan Boldin finished with a game-high eight catches for 79 yards, Lewis and the secondary minimized the damage done by Baltimore’s offense all night. Joe Flacco was held to 164 yards passing, and the Ravens were only 3-of-14 on third down.

“We knew we had to be aggressive in man coverage, especially with Boldin,” Lewis explained. “He’s fourth in the league on third downs. I knew that. I know they knew that. I knew they were going to try to get him the ball, so I had to make some stops.”

Lewis shared his thoughts on why the commendable effort by the defense went to waste:

The Steelers (6-4) visit the Browns (2-8) in Cleveland next Sunday at 1:00.
