Pittsburgh Steelers vs Baltimore Ravens 12/29/2019
The Pittsburgh Steelers bungled a golden opportunity to snag a playoff berth last weekend. Now, they face the ardent task of prevailing over the AFC’s top seed. That in mind, expect the Steelers to go all out for a win in their question for a postseason spot. The Steelers’ offense needs to keep it together and complement their good defense. They are limiting opponents to just 14.6 points per game and hope to put the clamps on the favored Ravens.
Players to watch:
M. Rudolph QB (10 GP 176 CMP 283 ATT 62.2 CMP% 1765 YDS 6.2 AVG 180.7 YDS/G 76 LNG 13 TD 9 INT 15 SACK 124 SYL 34.9 QBR 82 RTG), J. Conner RB (10 GP 116 ATT 464 YDS 4 AVG 25 LNG 2 BIG 4 TDS 46.4 YDS/G 1 FUM 1 LST 26 FD), B. Snell Jr. RB (12 GP 90 ATT 335 YDS 3.7 AVG 23 LNG 3 BIG 1 TDS 27.9 YDS/G 1 FUM 1 LST 15 FD.
Playing with nothing to lose, the Baltimore Ravens will play more relaxed than the Pittsburgh Steelers. Favored to win it all this year, Baltimore has the luxury of resting QB Lamar Jackson. Robert Griffin III will start in his place, someone who will not make things easy for the Steelers. On the defensive side, the Ravens are likewise solid. They are only allowing opponents 18.1 points per game, more worries for Pittsburgh to think about.
