4. Week 12 vs. Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens were arguably a top-three football team in the league in 2020, and they have the current NFL MVP leading the charge. Baltimore’s rushing attack has proven to be one of the best the league has ever seen, and they added J.K. Dobbins to that unit this offseason.
Though the Steelers Week 12 matchup against the Ravens is at home, Pittsburgh’s defense must be able to keep the run game in check if they are to have a chance in this contest. Even if the Steelers start off the season strong, Baltimore is likely to be favored in this contest.
At this point in the season, we could be looking at a bad weather game that could honestly favor the Ravens because of the way their team is built. This game could come down to seeding and where the Steelers and Ravens ultimately finish in their push for the playoffs.
