Week 9: vs Baltimore Ravens

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. WOW! Ben Roethlisberger is nuclear hot entering the second half of the season, having thrown for an incredible 40/49 for 522 yards passing, six TDs and zero interceptions (with zero sacks taken) against the Colts last Sunday. As usual, Antonio Brown led all receivers with 13 targets for 10/133/2 receiving vs. Indianapolis, followed by old stalwart Heath Miller (eight for 7/112/1). Youngsters Martavis Bryant (seven for 5/83/2) and Markus Wheaton (five for 5/56/1) also caught TD passes, while Le'Veon Bell snagged 6/56/0 on seven tries. It is all GREAT for the Steelers entering this key AFC North showdown. Last time Roethlisberger and company saw Baltimore (Week 2) the passing game was struggling (22/37 for 217 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception), but that is not true as of Week 9. This is a new game, friends. The Ravens' pass D coughed up 21/28 for 239 net yards passing, zero TDs and one interception to Andy Dalton last week (two sacks taken for -27 yards), after holding Matt Ryan and company to 29/44 for 186 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions (with five sacks taken for -42 yards behind their injury-ravaged offensive line). So far this season, Baltimore is ranked 22nd in the NFL averaging 256.0 net passing yards allowed per game,with seven passing scores given out vs. five interceptions (tied for 20th in the NFL) and seventeen sacks (16th) generated to date. The Steelers have given out 20 sacks this season (tied for 23rd in the NFL) - Roethlisberger is likely to have some pass rushers in his face this weekend. If Roethlisberger can avoid taking a lot of sacks, he should have a good game against the sub-par Ravens' secondary.
