After his team took a 35-7 beating, Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward focused on the Ravens converting a two point conversion in the third quarter. The Dancing with the Stars champion told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the Steelers will remember the play.
“It leaves a taste in your mouth,” he said. “The 2-point conversion. The passing at the end… We’ll remember everything.” If Ward wants to remember anything, it should be the shot he took by Jarrett Johnson in the third quarter. “The thing about him — guys like him that are kind of dirty guys, guys that’ll take shots — they usually get theirs,” Johnson said this morning on 98 Rock according to Mike Duffy of Baltimore Ravens.com.
Ravens punter Sam Koch, who converted the two pointer, told the Baltimore Sun that rubbing the lead in Pittsburgh’s faces isn’t the answer and wasn’t intended. “It was just something where the time arose, and we could do it, and we thought that was the time to do it,” Koch said. “So we called it, and it went in. It was a great play and a great call.”
