The Baltimore Ravens appear to be playing a prank on the rest of the NFL, in which they win in increasingly dirty ways. If history is any indication, that means his showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday should be the bleakest of the dirty, as AFC North games inevitably turn into takedown and drag matters. Such was the case last week for the Ravens, a 16-10 win over the Browns that saw four interceptions by Lamar Jackson and a stifling defense from Baltimore.
The Steelers 5-5-1 are looking to get back on track against the 8-3 Ravens, after going 1-2-1 in November. They have given up 82 points in the last two games, 41 symmetrical each against the Chargers and Bengals, and the defense was to blame. After giving up 382 yards to Justin Herbert two weeks ago, the Steelers allowed Joe Mixon 165 yards rushing last week. They’ve just been outmatched, but the Steelers defense has historically faced Baltimore.
You will have to do it this week. The Ravens rank fifth in the league in rushing yards, while the Steelers are the fifth worst in the league in rushing yards allowed. Greg Roman’s offense implements a host of fixes that can accommodate defenses, so the onus is on Mike Tomlin and defensive coordinator Keith Butler to limit the Ravens’ offense.
The Steelers are fast closing in on must-win territory. With the Ravens at 8-3 and the Bengals at 7-4, the AFC North is beginning to turn rich and poor. The Steelers’ remaining schedule is uncertain, with games against the Vikings, Titans and Chiefs looming. There are seven AFC teams vying for the seventh seed in the AFC, so the competition is steep. Any loss can derail the Steelers’ chance of it starting Sunday.
