AFC North standings: Steelers look for some positives in Week 13
Baltimore Ravens (8-3) vs Pittsburgh Steelers (5-5-1), Sunday at 4:25 P.M. ET
The Baltimore Ravens have proved to be the best team in their division to this point. They have a chance to show that again as they get ready to face one of their toughest rivals on Sunday. The Pittsburgh Steelers will host them after getting beaten up by the Cincinnati Bengals just a week prior.
The Ravens should be licking their chops heading into Heinz Field against a suspect club but these games are normally closer than expected. The Steelers will try their best to salvage what is left of this season and that desperation could be scary to a contending team like Baltimore.
The recipe for an upset is there but the Ravens should be able to take care of business. They have a great offense and a defense that causes turnovers. They might not have the strongest team in the NFL but they find ways of winning each week. That is what a good team can do, they overcome adversity thrown at them.
Pittsburgh has been the opposite of that as they have found ways of losing close games and getting into giant holes that they have to crawl out of. It might be a close game on Sunday because this is the black and gold’s last shot but it could spell the end. This game means much more to the home squad than it does for the incoming group.
