The Still Curtain staff shockingly has the Steelers winning this game

"After an abysmal performance against the Texans, the Steelers look to bounce back against our arch nemesis, the Baltimore Ravens. The "x-factor" in this game will be home-field advantage. In typical Steelers-Ravens fashion, this game will be decided in the fourth quarter on a big play by the Steelers defense, a pick-six, to be exact." - Eric C Hassel (Steelers 26-23)

"After getting embarrassed again in Week 4 against the Texans, there's just no way the Steelers come out as flat on their own turf against a division rival this week. With a win, Pittsburgh would hold possession of first place in the AFC North. Though the Ravens are banged up, so is Kenny Pickett, and Pittsburgh has not played well this season. I think they make it a closer contest but fall to 2-3 on the season by Sunday evening." - Tommy Jaggi (Ravens 20-16)

"This team makes me feel sick, but I feel like I know how this team functions. Ugly loss, clear underdogs, sudden hope spot. It isn't pretty, but the Steelers hold their own on a late field goal." - Andrew Falce (Steelers 17-16)

"The Steelers pull off another Tomlin special in a game they should probably lose by 20. After struggling against a young Texans offense just a week ago, TJ Watt and company give Lamar Jackson fits all game long resulting in a pair of turnovers. Pittsburgh steals a messy divisional game." - Dawson King (Steelers 23-17)
