It’s an AFC North showdown on Sunday as the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field with both teams hoping to move closer to top spot in the division.
Baltimore got the better of their fierce rivals in Week 2, but the Steelers will be desperate to put things right this time round as their rivalry hits prime time on Sunday night in a key showdown as both continue to chase the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Steelers looked in great form last week in a 51-34 win over the Indianapolis Colts, with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger going 40 of 49 for 522 yards, third-most in a regulation game in NFL history, and six touchdown passes which made him the first quarterback ever with two 500-yard games.
Running back Le’Veon Bell insisted that the team knows what they are capable of, but it is up to them to go out on the field and execute like they know they can. However, Pittsburgh can ill-afford a repeat performance of the last encounter with the Ravens in which they committed three turnovers and nine penalties in a 26-6 loss.
On the other end of the field, Joe Flacco will hope to inspire his team to another win, but with both sides locked on 5-3 for the season so far, the pressure will be on to produce in a hostile environment.
Flacco will look to exploit the defensive weaknesses within the Steelers, as despite Roethlisberger’s inspired performance last time out, they are still having problems on the other side of the ball.
Pittsburgh lead the overall series 16-14, but with Baltimore winning the last two meetings, they will be eager to put an end to their streak and improve on that record.
