In their regular season finale, the Ravens are set to do battle with their most bitter rival - the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unlike most matchups between these two foes, however, there isn’t much at stake this time around, at least not for Baltimore.
With the Ravens having already locked up the No. 1 seed in the AFC, they’re resting several key starters: Lamar Jackson, Brandon Williams, Earl Thomas III and Marshal Yanda. In addition, Mark Ingram (calf) and Mark Andrews (ankle) will not suit up. It wouldn’t be surprising to see other starters exit the game early, too.
For the Steelers, this a must-win game for their postseason hopes, although they’ll be relying on the Texans to defeat the Titans. If the Steelers win and Tennessee loses, Pittsburgh will clinch the final playoff spot in the AFC.
