The Ravens are 11-9 against the Steelers in Baltimore, winning the past three matchups. If the Ravens can't succeed on the ground against the Steelers, they have next to no chance of winning. Baltimore won both games last season by a total of six points.
It's a little insane to even see the Ravens keeping this close enough to be their eighth one-possession game of the season. It's just the way this series goes.
Eventually, Harris was placed on the Injured Reserve list, and Chris Hubbard, who normally plays guard and even center, started the last three games at right tackle. By edge, they were referring to that little extra something for games against Baltimore.
Does anyone think that the player who's topped only by the great Jim Brown in average yards from scrimmage per game in National Football League history might help the Steelers, at least just a bit, in those "spotlight" games?
BLAH BLITZBURGH: The Steelers have struggled to generate the big plays defensively that were their hallmark last season under first-year coordinator Keith Butler.
The word "hate" used to thrown around a lot before the Steelers faced the Ravens. Yes, it's had injuries. "Against the other 31 teams, Brown has averaged one touchdown every two games". Flacco is completing only 57 percent of his passes with five touchdowns and six interceptions.

That wouldn't be all that bad if he were still attacking downfield with regularity. Before his injury, he was leading the Ravens with 27 receptions for 310 yards.
Suggs is one of the few remaining stars in a rivalry that nearly always has playoff ramifications and occasionally extends into the postseason.
"We're seven games in, we're one game out of first in the division, and we're playing the team that's first in the division, which is our archrival", Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. On the field, he's among the toughest players in the NFL.
Very few people know if Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will return from injury this week against the Ravens, but Terrell Suggs seems pretty certain of what will happen. This is the rivalry that I'm guessing the Bengals think they have with us but don't because they're just dirty and terrible and will always lose in the playoffs anyway.
I like the Steelers to lean heavily on Le'Veon Bell and hit a couple of big plays downfield in this game to come away with a win, 24-17.
