Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens: 5 Things to Watch

The longtime rivals are coming off losses in Week 3 but they once again face each other with first place in the AFC North on the line

Baltimore running back Alex Collins had 82 yards on nine carries, including a 50-yard scamper midway through the third quarter that helped set up the Ravens for their lone touchdown. However, most sportsbook betting players feel like that result was a fluke and that the Steel City team will be ready to avenge that loss this Sunday.

Don't believe it if you will, but the Pittsburgh Steelers have the best overall team in football. He has yet to play a full 16-game schedule, the byproduct of a 6-foot-1, 237-pound frame that Shazier admits isn't necessarily built to play a position created to collide with considerably larger players on almost every snap. The Steelers defeated the Ravens 26-9. Even though the Steelers lost in overtime to the Chicago Bears last weekend, he still had 10 catches for 110 yards and a score. "There are so many great things we can do, but we have to take advantage of that". "We're very hopeful it'll be soon". I want to see him put up numbers and make plays. I'm not into the politics of the game.

The collection of talent is so good that linebacker James Harrison, the Steelers' all-time leader in sacks, has barely played thus far and was inactive against the Ravens after missing practice Friday because of illness.

In the blinders-on world of the National Football League, this had been a week like few others, one rife with strained conversations, bruised feelings, moral dilemmas. The Steelers held the ball for over 35 minutes, nearly 11 more minutes than Baltimore. One week after giving up 220 yards on the ground to the Bears, they gave up just 82 yards rushing against the Ravens.

A quick decision that the team would stand together this week settled that issue, at least for now. The days of Big Ben scrambling for 20-yard runs are over, which means Baltimore can focus on containing Le'Veon Bell and the receivers.

The Steelers' first drive of the game covered 84 yards, lasted almost 10 ½ minutes and ended with a 30-yard field goal.

You wouldn't want Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt grading your term paper. It was Bell's first 100-yard game of the season, and his 15 of his career.

And it was often not pretty.

Ben Roethlisberger celebrates during Sunday's game in Baltimore. And the Ravens don't give up too many plays, which will work against Martavis Bryant.

"We needed that game against Chicago at the end of the day", Shazier said.

Villanueva made it clear that he was exhausted of being the face of the standoff. While the defense may not be loaded with stars, the Steelers should be able to contain a Ravens attack that won't have their top receiver at full strength. "This is, I would say, the biggest rivalry in the NFL". He is a tackle, after all, used to anonymity, and he seemed nearly embarrassed about how he had become a hero to some in the middle of such a contentious period.

Still, Villanueva didn't like seeing images of himself pitted against Steelers coach Mike Tomlin as part of the debate over the protests. "To use me as a tool to push agendas and push messages, that's completely unacceptable".
