Ravens vs. Steelers: Open Thread

Gut-check time for the Baltimore Ravens (5-1) today as they face the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers (6-0). This is the first of two showdowns but to the victor goes better playoff positioning and a chance to sweep and lock up the AFC North division.

Baltimore comes into this game off a bye week. They’re the league’s best when coming off a bye since 2002, according to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley.


With this added break and preparation time for their 6-0 foe, there’s a likelihood the Ravens take down the best record in the NFL.

However, it won’t be easy. The Steelers are their record. They’re a fine football team and will look to continue their winning streak. They match up well against the Ravens—especially at interior defense— and early pressure could shake things up for the Ravens’ offense.
