Steelers crash back to earth in latest AFC North standings
The Ravens look to push their division lead further this week
Another huge divisional win for the Ravens in week 14 as they got a road victory over the Steelers. They were able to accomplish their task with a backup quarterback at the helm. That was all backed behind a great effort all around, which included a giant day on the ground that totaled over 200 rushing yards.
Pittsburgh is not the most formidable opponent, but Baltimore was able to get a gutsy win on the road in a hostile environment. They will be back on the road this week to face a similar kind of opponent in their division. Cleveland is not a great club this year and the playoffs are out of sight as the season draws to a close.
Baltimore Ravens (9-4) vs Cleveland Browns (5-8), Saturday at 4:25 P.M. EST
Will Lamar Jackson play this week? It seems unlikely on a short week as the NFL starts to enjoy a couple of free Saturdays as the college football schedule opens up. Either way, Tyler Huntley has proven to be a solid backup guy with the Ravens, and he should be able to do enough to set the Ravens up with a winning effort.
Things will likely be close as Cleveland tries their best to upset the division leaders at this juncture of the year. It will not be easy as the Ravens showed that they can struggle against a lesser opponent, just like they did last week. Their defense needs to have another great performance this week to get out of Cleveland with another win.
The Steelers have not been able to get out of the basement of the AFC North standings in a long time. The rest of the division has held them hostage there and it seems like no end is in sight.
