Steelers' defense has struggled lately

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers' defense continues to struggle, especially when it comes to giving up big plays.

It's been a theme over the past five games, and the Steelers have not shown an ability to stop the bleeding.

The Ravens, who have been one of the more inconsistent offenses in the NFL this season, were able to get big chunks of yardage in the running and passing games. Missed tackles have been a problem all season for the Steelers, and the Ravens were the latest team to take advantage of the Steelers in the open field.
