Pittsburgh Steelers: 5 players to watch against the Ravens
By Alex Fasano
The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens head to Sunday Night Football, and these five players are putting it all on the line for a Week 4 win.
Welcome to the Thunder Dome, otherwise known as a football game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens. Week 4 showcases one of the toughest division rivalries in the NFL. The matchup has over two decades of exciting games and intense highlights, thanks particularly in part to their respective defenses.
Both franchises built from legendary linebackers and secondary players. This week features five players to watch, with a focus on defense.
We finally saw some fire out of the Pittsburgh defense against the Buccaneers, thanks in part, to linebacker Jon Bostic. Finishing with; six tackles, a sack, and two deflected passes, one of which resulted in a crucial red zone interception.
After getting torched by Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs for six touchdowns and over 400 total yards, it was nice to see Pittsburgh cause four turnovers in the first half. Since the loss of Ryan Shazier, the Steelers have yet to fill the giant hole sitting in the middle of the field.
The Ravens come to town for a Week 4 Sunday night matchup. The last time these teams met, they combined for 77 points and over 950 total yards. Baltimore rides a 2-1 record into the Steel City, so Bostic needs to get his hands up again this week, only this time in Joe Flacco’s face.
