3 things we learned from Steelers win against Baltimore Ravens
The Steelers showed resolve yet again in the face of adversity to secure another victory
I know I ‘sound like a broken record’ as I keep stating the same thing over and over, but it’s true and it’s been the mantra on the season, which is this: The Steelers, under Mike Tomlin, are a resilient group who have risen above the adversity we have faced during the course of the 2020 NFL season.
The game against the Ravens, which was supposed to be played on Thanksgiving, in primetime, was eventually played 6 days later, mid-week at 3:40 PM, so not quite the primetime matchup we were hoping for, but, in true Steelers-Ravens fashion, the game was a close one and was entertaining on some levels.
What those levels consisted of, I am not quite sure, but, depending on your perspective, I suppose the game was entertaining. For me, the game was sloppy and lacked the energy that we usually get for a Steelers-Ravens matchup.
The Steelers are a flawed, yet an undefeated team
Yes, the ‘silver lining’ to the game against the Ravens is that we won and we are still undefeated; however, we could have easily lost and we would be talking about how we lost at home to an undermanned Ravens team. Fortunately, that did not transpire, so all is right in the world.
As I have stated ‘a hundred times’ already, I am overjoyed that we are undefeated and, barring a major setback, are positioned to ‘make some noise’ in the playoffs, but if we play the rest of the season the way we played against the Ravens, that noise won’t be very loud.
