  • Justin Forsett: 68 yards
  • Lorenzo Taliaferro: 69 yards and two touchdowns

Factors to consider:  

  • Ravens suffered a tough 24-27 loss against their divisional rivals the Cincinnati Bengals,
  • Next matchup, the Ravens are on the road once again this time towards Pittsburgh
  • Cold Weather temperature will not play a factor as these are two AFC North Teams
  • Need a win to stay one game ahead of the Steelers in the division; A Bengals loss will put them in first place of the AFC North.

Offensive Expectations:       

  • Joe Flacco goes up against a Steelers defense that seems to have gained momentum in the last weeks.
  • Expect Flacco and his offense to be pressure much throughout the entire game; Joe Flacco <300 yards

Defensive Expectations:

  • Ravens defense are up against a quarterback who has been on fire the past couple of weeks (Ben Roethlisberger)
  • The Ravens biggest challenge would have to be stopping Antonio Brown in the coverage as they have been struggling much in the pass defense (Ranked 22nd)

Pittsburgh Steelers (5-3)

Week 8 Top Performers:

  • Ben Roethlisberger: 522 yards and six touchdowns
  • Le’Veon Bell: 92 yards
  • Antonio Brown: 133 yards and two touchdowns

Factors to consider:  

  • Coming off a dominating 34-51 win versus the Indianapolis Colts
  • With a win here and a Bengals loss, Steelers can hold that top spot in the division and a three game winning streak
  • Steelers playing at home for the second consecutive week

Offensive Expectations:       

  • Big Ben and his Steeler offense face a Ravens defense that is ranked 22nd in pass defense (256.0 YPG)  and 7th in rush defense (90.4 YPG)
  • Expect Roethlisberger to be involved more in the passing game due to Ravens soft defense in coverage
  • Antonio Brown will be the Steelers QB main target; Antonio Brown>100 yards and a TD

Defensive Expectations:

  • Steeler’s defense goes up against Joe Flacco who hasn’t been looking so sharp
  • Despite the Ravens high offensive ranking (9th: averaging 375.5 YPG), the Steelers defense has been putting pressure on quarterbacks in the last weeks.
  • If they are able to stop the #1 offense in the league aka the Colts, they should have no problem stopping Joe Flacco and his Ravens offense.
