Steelers and Ravens will have another shot at each other this Sunday at 4:25 PM ET at M&T Bank Stadium, in a must win for both franchises.
If the Steelers lose, their playoffs dreams get in real trouble and if the Ravens lose is likely they end up losing the number two seed in the AFC.
“The thing our guys have done is, as a team, they’ve positioned themselves really well to take advantage of an opportunity,” coach John Harbaugh said. “Every game makes the next game that much more important.”
“We are improving on defense, and we improved throughout the course of the game,” Harbaugh said.
The Ravens haven’t scored more than 13 and 16 points over the last two games, but they won both contest. They have beaten the Steelers in their last three meetings.
For Pittsburgh, the idea that Ben Roethlisberger will be back for this game is nothing but a wet dream; Charlie Batch will be the starter despite the entire Steeler nation wants their quarterback back.
“We have to figure out what we need to do,” Batch said. “In order for us to get to where we want to get to, we have to start winning.”
“It’s disgusting, and it’s not something that we’re all about here,” said receiver Antonio Brown. “Hopefully, I can help bring back some order to this team.”
There are no lines up yet, but keep in mind Baltimore is 7-2 SU in its last 9 games when playing at home against Pittsburgh, but 3-5-2 ATS in its last 10 games when playing the Steelers.
