Jacoby Jones returned a punt for a touchdown, Justin Tucker kicked two field goals, and the Baltimore Ravens took control of the AFC North with a 13-10 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night.

The Ravens (8-2) moved two games in front of the Steelers (6-4) by shutting down Pittsburgh’s offense, which sputtered without injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Byron Leftwich, making his first start in more than three years, completed 18 of 39 passes for 201 yards and an interception. He ran for a score but also was sacked three times.

Baltimore’s Joe Flacco wasn’t much better, completing 20 of 32 passes for 164 yards, but the Ravens didn’t need Flacco to dominate to beat the Steelers for the third straight time at Heinz Field.

Jones had a touchdown return for the second consecutive week; he ran back a kickoff in a win over Oakland.

Jones, who also had a kickoff return for a score against Dallas last month, has four career touchdowns on punt returns.

In addition to the special teams score, Baltimore’s defense set up field goals by Tucker of 26 and 39 yards off of Pittsburgh turnovers.

Mike Wallace fumbled in the first quarter and backup quarterback Leftwich threw an interception in the third quarter.

Leftwich had a 31-yard touchdown run less than a minute into the game.
