PITTSBURGH, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Joe Flacco found Torrey Smith on a go-ahead touchdown pass with 8 seconds left Sunday, rallying the Baltimore Ravens to a 23-20 win over Pittsburgh.

The Steelers had taken their first lead of the game 5 minutes earlier on Ben Roethlisberger's 25-yard scoring strike to Mike Wallace, but the Ravens (6-2) mounted a successful last-chance drive.

Flacco (28-of-47, 300 yards) drove the Ravens (6-2) 92 yards on 13 plays as time wound down, keeping his team's hopes alive with an 11-yard completion to Anquan Boldin on third-and-8 to the Steelers' 26-yard line.

Two plays later, he found Smith on the right side of the end zone on a 26-yard strike for the game-winner.

Boldin finished with seven catches for 88 yards for Baltimore, which swept the season's series from Pittsburgh.

Roethlisberger finished 20-of-37 through the air for 330 yards, a touchdown and an interception for the Steelers (6-3), who saw their four-game winning streak snapped.
