On Sunday, AFC North rivals Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers faces each other for the 2nd time this season. The Steelers' Heinz Field will host the game and kick off is set at 8:20ET.
In Week 1, the Baltimore Ravens embarrassed the Pittsburgh Steelers with a 35-7 beat down at home. The Ravens forced a team record of 7 turnovers and constantly beat the Steelers' defense. The Ravens' offense was also in sync as they outran and out hustle the Steelers defense throughout the game.
In their past three games, the Ravens' offensive line must be ready to take on the Steelers' defense. Right now, their O-line is somewhat shaky and full of holes. In their Week 8 game, the O-line let the Cardinals hit QB Joe Flacco four times, sacked him three times and forced two fumbles. They must not let this happen if they want to beat the Steelers for the 2nd time this season.
The Pittsburgh Steelers endured all the criticisms when they were defeated by Baltimore Ravens. Most people told them that they can't play with the young guns. However, most of the players took the jeers in stride and vowed that their Week 1 loss is just an illusion.
The Steelers leads the AFC North with a 6-2 record and puts their four-game winning streak on the line. Its payback time this Sunday and they want to prove that they are still the best team at the AFC North.
The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Pittsburgh Steelers as a 3-point favorite to beat the Baltimore Ravens. The team that moves the ball well and has the least turnover will win this game.
