Ravens vs. Steelers: Open Thread

The second matchup of 2018 has arrived in the rivalry. Can the Ravens sweep or will they split the series?

This could be it, folks, in many ways. This could be the nail in the coffin for the season, dropping three-straight games and plunging to 4-5. It could be the last game we witness Terrell Suggs play in against the Steelers. Maybe the last time Ben Roethlisberger battles Baltimore while donning the Pittsburgh jersey. But here—and now—comes the biggest game of the 2018 season.

This game is everything and it comes without two critical pieces to the Ravens offense. Among the many players listed out for this matchup, both the Ravens starting tackles are listed OUT. This leaves Jermaine Eluemunor and Orlando Brown Jr. as the next men up to provide Joe Flacco protection and hopefully running lanes on the ground.

This is a chance for Baltimore to sweep the Steelers for the first time in three years. It’s up to the big men up front on offense and the entire defense to contain JuJu Smith-Schuster, Antonio Brown and the highly-touted James Conner for a second time this year.
