After an ugly, ugly win against the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football, the Ravens vs. Steelers will continue their primetime rivalry for the 11th straight season.
Ravens game versus Steelers on Dec. 10 is not flexed. Will stay as Sunday night game. There was some speculation that Eagles-Rams could go to primetime that day, but Ravens-Steelers will renew their rivalry on NBC— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiecsun) November 28, 2017
I believe if the Ravens lost last night, the Rams vs. Eagles game was the clear choice to play in primetime. Even now, it’s still a toss up. Both squads are top teams in the NFL, and it will be a high-scoring affair. Meanwhile, the Ravens offense threw two-yard passes on 3rd & 12 last night. I believe the star-studded Steelers helped keep this game in primetime, while the Ravens won just enough to stay in the playoffs, and force the decision to stay as the night game.
It may not be pretty, but the Ravens still clutch onto the Sunday night game, much like their defensive backs were hanging onto Deandre Hopkins’ jersey last night.
