Steelers secondary faces challenge in rematch with Ravens

Steelers secondary faces challenge in rematch with Ravens

After that, however, a botched extra point cost them a shot at overtime in a 24-23 loss to New Orleans, and Carolina put a 36-21 whipping on Baltimore before the Steelers avenged a September 30 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is facing some criticism for a really freaky decision he made early in today's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Two plays later, Roethlisberger - who had the wind knocked out of him - found Jesse James deep for 51 yards over the top.

Baltimore's latest loss is its third in a row, and now sitting at 4-5 on the season the Ravens are focused on getting healthy with a bye week on the horizon. Ravens have minus-4 turnover differential, Steelers minus-3.

There are reports the Ravens might consider sweeping changes this week, but Harbaugh did not appear overly concerned about his status.

"I understand that's part of it - and probably not surprised, because you have to win games in this league", Harbaugh said about the questions surrounding his job security.

"I'm just doing what I love to do", Conner said. I feel really good about the way this team has been coached for the last 11 years.


The Ravens are now 4-5 and had several key members injured as they prepared to host the Steelers. Pittsburgh still has tough matchups against the Panthers, Chargers, Patriots, Bengals and Saints. "It's great to get an AFC North road victory under those circumstances".

"We have to make sure, as much as we can, that we keep the ball in front of us", Butler said.

Pittsburgh has won back-to-back games in M&T Bank Stadium for the first time since 2001-02, and it did so with quite the creative quarterback exchange. Conner had 163 yards of offense and a receiving touchdown.

Ravens: Starting offensive tackles Ronnie Stanley (ankle) and James Hurst (back) were on the inactive list. These two teams are both playing ridiculously different than they were in Week 4 though so I am giving the advantage to Pittsburgh. The Ravens now sit in the bottom 25% of the league in rushing offense, so if Flacco is not playing well, the offense really has nowhere else to turn. "Offensively, we're a team that likes to spread it out...use the pass to open up the run". After four games, quarterback Joe Flacco was averaging 313 yards per game but since that time he is down to around 250 yards per game.

In each of the last two years, the Baltimore Ravens have been eliminated from playoff contention with late-season losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

We also included a couple of sleeper guys. We know if we take care of our business, things will work out for themselves.
