I still hate the Ravens

The Steelers were without Le’Veon Bell on Saturday night when they went up against the Baltimore Ravens for the right to advance to the divisional round of the playoffs. The running backs didn’t have much of a factor in the game where the combination of Josh Harris and Ben Tate ran for 44 yards. On the other side of the ball the Ravens only gained 49 yards on the ground.
The difference in this game came down to the Steelers red zone inefficiencies early on, three Steelers turnovers, and 114 yards worth of penalties the Steelers gave up. Those are recipes for a loss no matter who is out of the game with injury. With that the Steelers go on to the offseason. There will be departures, arrivals, and changes to come.
Still Curtain has you covered for the Steelers offseason!
