“It’s always distressing when pioneer has a stumble and goes down”, said Brown, the NFL’s principal stereo receivers who exactly additional another 108 lawns on 11 receptions. Both teams are in hot water at the moment for different reasons, so this is a huge game. Let’s preview the matchup. They are struggling to move the ball on the ground, with Justin Forsett averaging only 3.2 yards per carry and 41 yards a game. There’s only one problem, star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is out after injuring his leg against the St. Louis Rams. Pittsburgh’s overhauled defense has shown signs of early growth and can play downhill knowing Ravens QB Joe Flacco is unlikely to teach them deep.
Ben Roethlisberger carted off the field Sunday against the Rams. All three losses were games that Baltimore could have won.
Between now and Thursday’s game Vick will do his best to build chemistry with the offense and watch more game film, but will surely reflect on yet another chance at being a starter. That begins with Le’Veon Bell, who will be the centerpiece in this game. If Jernigan, Davis and Guy can get some penetration, it slows down Bell and allows the pursuit to catch him. Vick’s launch point is significantly different and the reality is Antonio Brown and the Steelers’ other wide outs are going to need a bit of time to make the adjustment. In fact, these two AFC North franchises are considered by many to have the nastiest rivalry in the league.
It was the Steelers’ first interception this season. The Ravens are soul-searching at 0-3. If the rest of his teammates had the same fight, the Ravens would be 3-0 instead of 0-3.
All three defenses the Ravens have faced – Denver, Oakland and Cincinnati – are in the top 15 at containing the run.
Last season, the Ravens finished at a respectable 10-6, good enough to qualify for the postseason, where they knocked off the division-winning Steelers in the Wild Card playoff round, only to lose to the eventual Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots in the Divisional round. Steve Smith Sr. recently said that he would retire after this season, but he’s been playing terrific so far. Living on the east coast and openly fearing your team having to play later than 8:00 because you don’t want to have to go to bed passed 11:00.
The Ravens were a -2-point favorite against the Bengals in the last outing, but failed to cover in the match.
