Week 9: at Pittsburgh Steelers
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Justin Forsett is the Ravens' lead back entering the second half of the season, but unfortunately he is pulled in red-zone/goal-line situations. Two weeks ago, Forsett rang up 23/95/0 rushing vs Atlanta, but Bernard Pierce (8/21/1 rushing) pushed in a one-yard score. Last weekend, Forsett gained 17/68/0 rushing and 3/17/0 receiving, but Lorenzo Taliaferro pushed in two scores, from 10 and eight yards out (7/27/2 rushing with 2/42/0 receiving). Forsett gets plenty of work but not much glory as the Ravens have set up their rushing attack this season. The last time these teams met (Week 2), Bernard Pierce was the lead back so a lot has changed since then.
The Steelers' rush D allowed 10/63/1 to the Colts' runners last week, after surrendering 30/132/0 to Houston two games ago. To date, the Steelers are ranked 11th in the NFL averaging 107.8 yards rushing allowed per game, with seven rushing scores handed out this season.
Forsett and company comprise a respectable rushing attack; the Steelers have an above-average rush D to bring to Heinz Field on Sunday Night Football. Advantage Pittsburgh.
