Madden predictions series: Week 5 @ Pittsburgh

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

After getting off to a pretty unexpected 3-0 start, the Ravens played host to the Cleveland Browns in Week 4 for what was their first divisional outing of the season. Things didn’t go to plan at all, as Baker Mayfield threw all over them for much of the game, and despite a valiant effort to force overtime, Baltimore ultimately dropped their first game of the season at the gun.

They now head up to face a familiar foe in yet another division rival - the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Black and Yellow have had a rough couple of months, starting with their failure to make the 2018 playoffs despite a nice advantage towards doing so, and then stretching into the offseason with the Antonio Brown/Ben Roethlisberger drama.

Making matters worse is that their roster on paper doesn’t look quite as strong as what we’re used to seeing over the past few years. Doubt this franchise at your own peril though; it certainly wouldn’t surprise anyone to see this team back in the mix in 2019, and even if they’re not, this Week 5 matchup figures to be very tough for Baltimore.
