Yeah, Hi, I'm Matt Williamson with yard barker here to talk about a huge matchups.
Pittsburgh Steelers going to Baltimore to take on the Ravens.
Uh, back to back weeks, that Steelers were kind of the feature game of the week.
They knocked off.
The undefeated Titans remain undefeated themselves, and now they're taking on huge Rival and in Baltimore, with only one loss and the Ravens air coming off a bye, um, Baltimore's only loss came against Chiefs.
Only two teams in the league have a better point differential than Pittsburgh in Baltimore.
Only the Titans have a better turnover differential than Baltimore Steelers Air running 7.
6 more plays per game than Baltimore, though that's a really big gap.
The Steelers were running Mawr third down snaps per game than any offense in the league, and they need to get better on early downs.
Stay out of those third down situations.
Only two offenses have been better on third downs on the Steelers, though, and no one is possessing the foot balm or on a per game basis.
3 yards for play averages near the bottom of league.
So this has been a really short controlled passing game.
It's worked, but the Ravens should play a lot of press man coverage, disrupt the timing, and they're very capable of doing that.
7 sacks per game, is second best in the league but still well behind Pittsburgh, the best pass rushing team in the league.
By a wide margin.
1 yards per play allowed, is outstanding.
The Steelers give up just 4.
9 yards per play, though only the only the box and Colts are better than Pittsburgh in this regard, but barely a Z, you would expect Baltimore runs the ball a higher percentage of the time than any team in the NFL.
But the Steelers opponents are running the ball, the lowest percentage in the league.
So something has to kind of give here, obviously, but Baltimore's running game hasn't been is consistent this year.
Instead, they're more reliant on long runs and something that Pittsburgh really rarely allows.
Uh, the Steelers could really miss Devin Busch, though, in this thing game against Lamar Jackson, especially just from a speed and athleticism in the middle of the field standpoint.
Jackson but hasn't been great is a pastor, though, and Baltimore's wide receivers have been really unproductive.
Ah, these have also been two of the best teams in the league on special teams.
Baltimore held lead on 72.
5% of their snaps this year, a formula that treated them extremely well last year.
So whoever gets the early lead, we'll go a long way.
Determine the final outcome.
I think the rested Ravens at home should come up, come out flying and get up early.
Think that helps him quite a bit.
I like the Ravens 27 Steelers 23.
