Watch as the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Baltimore Ravens in their first game of the 2017 series.
Like usual, there’s no expectations for the Steelers and Ravens. As the top two teams in the AFC North through three games, both of these teams are fighting to keep control of the division.
As two of the best teams in the AFC, this game could go anywhere. Even if Baltimore has home-field advantage, this rivalry has proven that anything can happen when black and yellow and purple and black clash on the field.
For Pittsburgh, they’ll be missing a few starters, but should have enough firepower to have the upper hand in this one. Coming off a bad overtime loss to the Chicago Bears, this team is motivated and looking to redeem themselves. Against their biggest rival, there’s no better opportunity than Week 4 in Baltimore.
This big question mark in this one is going to be how well Le’Veon Bell plays. Marcus Gilbert could miss this week meaning the Pittsburgh running back will have to find his breakout game without his entire starting line.
On the defensive end, the Steelers need to step up in the run game. Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen torched Pittsburgh’s defense last week, ending the game in practically two plays in overtime on two big runs.
This week, Terrance West and Javorius Allen are priority as the Steelers need to shut down a team who’s already rushed for 427 yards through three games. With T.J. Watt and Stephon Tuitt back, though, this defense could be a completely different animal in Week 4.
No one knows what to expect, but everyone knows this game is going to be your typical Ravens, Steelers brawl. At 2-1, both teams want control of the division and having to go through the other to get it is just right where they wanted to be at this point in the season.
The Steelers should have the more well-rounded team, and with a few big plays and limited mistakes, should come out of this one as the leader of the AFC North.
