Steelers’ offense seeks success in Baltimore

Pittsburgh is now leading Baltimore, 7-0.

After enduring nine straight weeks of football to get this far, the tired, aching Ravens will gladly take a week off before attempting to end a three-game losing streak.

In case you're wondering, Roethlisberger is a left-footed kicker.

This game also could have huge implications for John Harbaugh's future in Baltimore.

Seven plays after that, Chris Boswell's 29-yard field goal strengthened a lead the Steelers would not relinquish.

"This week is going to help us". Entering a long-awaited bye week, Harbaugh spoke about how badly the Ravens needed the break to rest and heal.

Baltimore's offense is trending in the exact opposite direction of the Steelers.

"The sky is not falling", safety Eric Weddle said.

"Baltimore did a great job taking away big plays from us today, so we just settled for whatever we could get", Roethlisberger said. It's a division game. He wouldn't say who would be responsible for Brown from Pittsburgh's secondary, which is expected to have cornerback Artie Burns in the mix after using him exclusively on special teams against Cleveland. "We have respect for this rivalry and our participation in it, and we're preparing with that in mind". James Conner rushed for 107 yards and caught a TD pass for the Steelers, who have won four straight since falling to the Ravens at home on September 30. Conner had 163 yards of offense and a receiving touchdown. "So I think having a perspective of dealing with it for a number of years, I think the things that you choose to push to the front of the line if time is limited".

That has led to questions about the Ravens' starting quarterback position and whether rookie first-round pick Lamar Jackson should replace Flacco. "It's not like we've been winning with it".

They cut a 20-point deficit in the third quarter to just four points on four different occasions in the fourth quarter. To be fair to Gordon Hayward , he's still working his way into game shape after missing 81 contests in 2017-18.


Perhaps he should have cut it a week ago. Their last loss came September 30 against the Ravens at Heinz Field, as the Steelers converted 2-of-12 third downs and rushed for just 19 yards in that game. Players like Franco Harris, Jerome Bettis, Antonio Brown, and many others.

"It's been a tough stretch", Harbaugh said.

Surprisingly, Brown has only four career TDs against the Ravens.

Pittsburgh has won back-to-back games in M&T Bank Stadium for the first time since 2001-02, and it did so with quite the creative quarterback exchange. Sensabaugh fully practiced on Friday, while Burns left practice early with his ankle injury. Burns shrugged off his issues, but Tomlin offered a stern rebuke of the 23-year-old's tardiness.

"We got to continue to control our own destiny", said Brown, who finished with five catches for 42 yards. "And so, he suffered the consequences of that".

The secondary could obviously be better than it was in the previous matchup, Haden said.

"Don't jinx it", Flacco said when told of the stat.

The Ravens went 1-3 in October, but have cause for optimism because they're 30-12 in November since coach John Harbaugh took over in 2008.

Then he might not want to know the Ravens are 7-0 at home in November against the AFC North under Harbaugh.
