Two of the best teams in Football will be squaring off in a divisional battle as the Steelers travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. Pittsburgh is the only remaining team in the NFL with an undefeated record, and the Ravens will try to put an end to that.
The Steelers handed the Titans their first loss of the season their last time out 27-24 to remain the only unbeaten team left in the league. This marks the first time in Big Ben’s career that he has started 6-0 to begin a season.
Pittsburgh jumped out to an early lead against the Titans and needed every point. After putting up 24 points in the first half the offense struggled in the second half of the game and only managed to score a field goal early in the third quarter.
Ben Rothlisberger had a great first half but took too many chances in the second half which caused him to turn the ball over three times. Rothlisberger finished the day against the Titans throwing for 268 yards to go along with two touchdowns and three interceptions.
Overall on the season, Big Ben has been great though. Ben has completed 146 of 214 pass attempts for 1446 yards to go with his 13:4 TD to INT ratio. He also has the longest touchdown in the NFL this season with a long of 84 yards to Chase Claypool.
Defensively, this may be the best defense we have seen since the 2015 Broncos or 2018 New England Patriots. On average they are allowing 19.7 points per game which is good for 6th in the league, but they are turning the ball over at a ridiculously high rate. Pittsburgh so far has recovered nine turnovers on the season and are forcing opponents to turn over the ball on 14.4% of drives which is insane. Hopefully, turnover luck will be on their side this weekend as they are going to need going up against the Ravens offense.
Baltimore had their bye week this past week and is coming into this matchup with the Steelers well-rested and ready to go. They took down the Eagles their last time on the field 30-28 in Week 6 after a last-minute stand by their defense which was huge.
Lamar Jackson is quietly having another fantastic season, after winning the MVP award last year. Jackson has completed over 63% of his passes for 1135 yards to go along with 10 TD’s and just two interceptions. He also leads the Ravens in rushing with 346 yards on the ground and two scores.
Look out for J.K Dobbins to be getting more of a workload here against Pitt with the possibility for Mark Ingram being sidelined with an injury. Dobbins was the Raven’s first second-round draft choice this past year and had put up some incredible numbers at Ohio State. He has just 25 carries for 154 yards this season but look out for him to do some damage on Sunday.
Statistically speaking the Ravens defense has been the best in the NFL. They are giving up an average of 17.3 points per game, but that number is skewed from the fact that the Browns only managed to put up six points and Cincy only mustered three points. They also lead the league in takeaways and have recovered 11 turnovers this season. Baltimore is forcing opponents to turn the ball over at a league-high 16.2% of all drives.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Ravens -3.5
I think the Ravens are the right play here with the public being too high on the Steelers. Yeah, Pittsburgh is the only remaining undefeated team but they have had a relatively easy schedule so far. Baltimore’s defense ranks second in DVOA and will be the first real test for this Steeler’s offense this season. The toughest defense they have had to face so far has been Tennessee who ranks 14th in the league in DVOA. Lamar Jackson being a mobile QB gives the Ravens a much bigger advantage with the Steelers playing man to man coverage almost 60% of their snaps. Give me the Ravens and the points to squeak out a win against Pittsburgh.
