43rd regular-season meeting.
Running back Le'Veon Bell is averaging just 3.5 yards a carry and he continues to shake off the rust from missing training camp and the preseason in a contract dispute.
Coach Mike Tomlin doesn't seem too concerned.
"He's probably the most athletic linebacker in the league", Hilton said. Ben Roethlisberger completed 18-of-30 passes for 216 yards 1 touchdown and an interception. He missed several open receivers throughout the game.
The Steelers lost to the 1-3 Bears in overtime on September 24, a shocking upset as Bears running back Jordan Howard ran it in for a game-ending touchdown, blowing right by Shazier to do it. The defense immediately stepped up after that first play, stopping the Ravens on their opening drive. Ravens QB Joe Flacco is trying to recover from the worst game of his career. He was 31 of 49 for 235 yards with a touchdown and two costly interceptions. Flacco finished with a passer rating of 12.0. Baltimore was shut out in the first half in back-to-back games for just the second time under Harbaugh.
The Steelers defensive performance against the Ravens certainly helped Shazier's case.
PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Pittsburgh DE Cameron Heyward.
Bell returning to form was not only good for the immediate game, but a long-term provided hope for the Steelers backfield. JuJu Smith-Schuster scored another touchdown, andJesse James continued to produce. In week two, it was Bryant, and Le'Veon Bell's turn came on Sunday. Defensive coordinator Keith Butler also had a nice game plan against the Ravens, and his players executed it well. WR Antonio Brown had 10 catches for 110 yards and a touchdown last week. Bryant led the team with 48 receiving yards.
While the Ravens are coming off a humiliating loss, the Steelers also fell short, losing in overtime to the Chicago Bears, 23-17. He has three straight games with nine-plus tackles against the Ravens. But after seeing Roethlisberger completed 8-of-10 passes (the two incompletions were spikes) while Baltimore's cornerbacks played soft on the game-winning drive previous year, Pees prefers Humphrey's aggressiveness. However, the offense featured a heavy dose of Bell, who ran the football 35 times. LB C.J. Mosley recorded eight tackles last week.
Baltimore's defense has forced one turnover in the last two games.
Does the streak finally come to an end Sunday afternoon at StubHub Center in Carson, California when the Philadelphia Eagles come to town as 1-point underdogs?
Pittsburgh's pass rush kept quarterback Joe Flacco on his heals for most of the game.
