I was given just a second.
The kickoff was just returned and the game is underway.
We got started. Just a little.
Give me just a second mobile.
Get things started here for the Steelers and the Ravens.
All right, so RG three.
Making his first start since 2016 he's in the backfield for the Ravens, the Ravens arresting their starters today and his first handoff will go to gusts Edwards.
And he's gonna pick up a good gain of about four Ravens air resting.
Quite a few starters.
They're also resting there.
Right guard Marshal Yanda Mark Ingram is kind out within injuries that injured Calf for a few weeks now, and he's an arrest this game as well.
Stealers can clinch a playoff berth.
A wild card spot if they're able to win this game and get some help in the Titans Texans game is that one is run off left tackle by Edwards again to bring up third and short.
Sorry about the loss.
New England superfan, but like I had ah, at a chance for retribution there at the end.
Ah, while get wild week today and ah, the NFL, you know, the Packers that took in the last second.
The, uh, the it took the last second for Nate Sorely is in a quarterback on this third, and to RG three motioned out to the right side.
Sorely keeps this one, and I believe McSorley may have picked up the first down on that.
I don't go out of my way to watch very many Ravens games that don't involve this dealer, so I'm not sure if that's the first time we've seen Mate McSorley all season.
I can't imagine he's been active, and they are gonna call it a first down.
After initially ruling him short to day what was in on the tackle.
Thanks for joining the Stream.
Yeah, it's been a weird day in the NFL.
A lot of you know, it took the last second for the Packers to beat the Lions and Bangles beat the Browns.
It's been a weird day, so maybe the Steelers can ah can come into the Ravens house and pull out a win.
Here is this one is.
Give RG three it to put the ball in the air.
It's a rainy day in Baltimore ****, and while the broadcast kind of takes a bit of a break.
Uh, sorry for getting started a little late.

And this will be a flag false start on the Ravens.
Excuse me? That is a neutral zone infraction on T J.
What? And he's arguing against it, But the call was made, and that's final.
What? So now the ball is at the 49 yard line in Steelers territory.
Second to RG three.
He's in a bounce it to the outside and pick up a first down swell.
Edmund's will push him out of bounds, and RG three takes a spill all the way to his bench.
And this is a good opportunity for RG three things for Robert Griffin the third.
You know, he didn't get a fair shake in Washington and then his next stop was in Cleveland and that was a hopeless situation so he served as the back up here for the Ravens.
You'd like to see Robert Griffin and third get a little more opportunity for success in the NFL, as this one has given to Gus Edwards.
He's made a few guys miss and picks up about seven before he's drugged down by Javon Hargrave, Steelers nose tackle.
And you see the bizarre career for Robert Griffin the third.
You have to wonder if he never injures that me in that wild card lost does.
Is he still the quarterback in Washington? Or, if he signs with literally anybody else except for the Cleveland Browns, who were not able to protect him and keep himself safe? Put him in good situations.
Is he a quarterback elsewhere in the NFL? There may be opportunities for him.
Next year is this.
One has given to Gus Edwards as well, going to see a lot of running game from both teams as Joe Hayden upends Gus Edwards after he picks up a good gain of maybe about 10 and a first down and they mention it on the broadcast.
The Ravens came into this game needing 93 yards to break the all time single season team rushing record held by the 1978 New England Patriots.
And they're already putting a dent in that look well on their way to eclipsing that record again in the pistol.
As Hearst comes into the backfield with a trio full house formation, this one goes to Justice Hill for no gain off the middle.
Isaiah Bugs the Alabama alum getting in there for the stop.
I love me some Isaiah Bugs.
He was a big time player in Alabama, a late round steel, I think, by the Steelers he could be a good contributor for years to come, I believe, as a reserve defensive lineman speaking a reserve defense alignment, Tyson a Lulu out there for the Steelers as well.
He's filled in quite nicely the entire year.
I wasn't a fan of a Lulu when he was signed by the Steelers, but he's served very well for Pittsburgh's front since Steven Stefan to it went down after he was having a career year.
He went down early in the season with a torn pectoral muscle.
That one goes for a short game as well.
Hell got to carry yet again.
Why, again, Rainy conditions in Baltimore, so expect a lot of run game from both teams.
Of course, RG three hasn't really played a lot.
And of course, I say this is the Ravens come out in an empty formation.
Three receivers to the top of the formation.
When you look on the other side for the Steelers, we'll see them on offense soon.
Dark Hodges having awful a few weeks and Griffin is taken down for the sack.
Mike Hilton and T.
J Watt pair up to bring down RG three, and that results in 1/4 down.
That's Dr had some promise and stalls out, and RG three is taken down at about the 29 yard line.
So about a 47 or so yard field goal set up for a Justin Tucker, we'll see how he looks in the rain today.
24 25 field goals This year.
The best kicker in the NFL.
This is a 45 yard attempt fromthe left hash and, of course, right down the middle.
7 56 to go in the first quarter.
Baltimore takes an early lead. Three.
Nothing over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Emily, Texas, y'all.
Thanks for joining the stream.
My name's Jacob Harrison.
Thank you for joining me here on SportsCastr and allowing me to be your call for the Steelers.
Ravensgame is usually the best game of the year, usually my favorite game of the year.
As far as NFL goes, this one's gonna be kind of difficult to handle because you know the Steelers, they're in a situation where if they win this game and the Titans lose to the Texans, they're definitely in the playoffs.
Ah, but even even if that happens, you know, you have to wonder, as a Steelers fan myself, is it worth going to the playoffs? I'm one of those where, of course, you go to the playoffs.
There's a successful season and based off of the injuries and all the things that this team has had to deal with, Absolutely.
You take going to the playoffs, you don't take it for granted and you see what you can make of yourself in the postseason.
Um, but I can't imagine this team having very much success If they do find a way to win this game and get some help from the Texans who don't have to win the game against the Titans unless they feel the same way as the Ravens do you keep your rival out of the playoffs? They're the ones playing with everything.
You don't want to have to see them again with them having the light moment, Um, having beaten you in the regular season.
So interesting games for sure around the NFL, this is always a weird time of year.
Where do you put in the effort to ensure that your rivals don't go to the playoffs? But I think all in all, regardless of the outcome of this game and what the Steelers were doing next week, whether their season's over or they're playing in a wild card game likely would be against the Patriots.
So, Yikes, um, would you have to count this season as a success for the Steelers? They got to see, um, everything they needed to know.
I think about Mason Rudolph and know that he's not the future of the team, and they need to figure something else out at quarterback in the draft this year.
If next year is, in fact, Ben Roethlisberger's final season, Uh, Hodgins is most definitely not the answer he wouldn't be starting today if Mason Rudolph was healthy.
Rudolph did come into the Jets game last week and gave the Steelers the greatest opportunity to win the game before he injured his shoulder.
Ah, so his season is over.
He won't return.
So now the Steelers will get their first opportunity in this ball game as Tucker kicks this one away out of the back of the end zone. Touchback.
Keyrates! White watch that would go over his head.
Here comes Duck Hodges, who in his 1st 5 starts was playing incredible football.
Ah, and by incredible I mean, he was being smart with the ball.
He wasn't killing us, to quote Mike Tomlin.
But these past two games against the Bills and the Jets to the Bills have one of the best defense is in the NFL.
The Jets have a very good defense, and he's played just awful against those two teams.
One touchdown to six interceptions.
You see a stat line there, 958 yards, five touchdowns to eight picks for his season.
The undrafted rookie from Sanford.
This one is given its to Benny Snell, who gets the start today as James Connor is out for this game.
The Steelers are also missing marquees Pouncey, Its center BJ Finning, is in for him.
And on defense, the Ravens are resting Brandon Williams and Earl Thomas as well.
Let's keep that in mind as the Steelers progress offensively.
Duck in the shotgun takes the snap.
He's feeling pressure and launches that one over the head of Deante Johnson, third and nine now upcoming.
But do keep in mind that Marcus Peters and Marlon Humphrey are playing at corner.
Brandon Carr is still back there. Free safety.
So the for the most part, the Ravens.
You have a great secondary out there to really good cornerbacks, for sure.
39 Ravens crowding the line of scrimmage.
Duck takes the snap.
He feels some pressure and gets this one away, and it's out of the reach of juju Smith.
Schuster has had a very disappointing season, dealt with injuries.
Has it really put up the stats that you would hope for out of a number one wired wide receiver as it had the help? Because he's had to deal with the carousel, a quarterback and wild inconsistencies from that position that one did land in his hands.
He had an opportunity, but it goes them incomplete.
Three and out for the Steelers in their first Dr Very punts this one away, it lands at 35 bounces out of bounds.
So barely a minute of time passes.
The third will come back out for the Ravens, looking to extend the lead.
Hop up and get myself some water.
I kind of forgot to do that.
So bear with me. I'll be right back.
You It's all right, guys.
Thanks for sticking with me, Nick Nack.
Welcome to the the Broadcast.
So now, as the Ravens look to take over on offense, I don't know it just the offense doesn't seem to have that same kind of moxie and confidence to itself when Duck has been out there ever since That Bills game, it's just been in a real rut, so not sure what to expect today.
Paxton Lynch is the backup quarterback for the Steelers.
Barrett over the weekend are during the week, I should say, to serve as the third arm, and I'm fairly certain he's not active today.
Welcome to the broadcast.
Thanks for joining us.
There's a reason Paxton Lynch has bounced around the league.
So I'm not sure that the Steelers would look to him no matter how bad Duck plays, which is really a bizarre thing in all reality.
Paxton Lynch, being a former first round pick, has all the measurables but is lacking in other departments.
RG three and the pistol sends a fullback in motion and hands to Gus Edwards, who makes a few guys miss before tumbling down after a gain of about three.
And as you see the records that the Ravens could break today, that could set a new franchise record for 14 wins in a season.
Kind of shocking to me that Baltimore is yet to win 14 games in a season.
They need just 47 yards to eclipse that rushing title as a team.
This one's caught by Hayden Hearst, and he picks up a first down and crosses the mid field line for a good game for the Ravens.
And I knew there was something weird looking about Robert Griffin the third.
He's not wearing a sleeve.
He's got turfed tape on that left arm, but he's not wearing a sleeve, that traditional look that he kind of maybe so popular during his Heisman run at Baylor, this one tossed out to running back.
That was number 16.
It's actually a wide receiver and the return specialist for the Ravens.
And if you watch along on the broadcast, Tennessee just tied it up with Houston after a 51 yard touchdown from Ryan Tannehill to A.
Brown very exciting rookie wide receiver.
If the Titans win that game, they will clinch the six seed and head to New England to meet the Patriots next week.
This is a gift to Justice Hill, who rushes past T J.
What gets upfield for gain of about five 4 45 left in the first and 1/3 down upcoming for the Ravens.
Gus Edwards behind RG three.
Sneed comes in motion to the bottom of the formation, and he goes back across.
This is a gift, a gust Edwards.
He finds a gap, and he is gone down to the five yard line.
Make a Fitzpatrick was able to get across his body and trip him up.
He was the real last line of defense is to Royal.
Edmunds didn't make a very good angle on that, and as a result, it will be first and goal from the five yard line for the Ravens.
And that Rush may have broken that record for a single scene.
Teams rushing yardage.
It does, in fact, with one Maur.
This is a give to Chris Moore, and he won't pick anything up before he heads to the sideline.
Second and goal now upcoming.
As we near the three minute mark in the first quarter from the four yard line, Edwards lines up next to Griffin in the backfield, too, is right.
Marquees Brown in motion.
Griffin tosses up to the near side of the end zone, and it's knocked away by Stephen Nelson.
He was looking for Jalil Scott, the second year man from New Mexico State at wide receiver, who stands 65 He had the height advantage.
Advantage could come down with it in the rain.
So now third and goal, Griffin drops back.
He's got pressure from Bud Dupree and he slices that one in and it pops up in the air after Joe Hayden at good coverage on Nick Boyle and that will bring up 1/4 down.
The Steelers defense holds yet again to force Justin Tucker to come out for another field goal, and Boil just wasn't ready for the throw.
Griffin tried to make something happen is he was under duress from Cam Heyward.
So now a 22 yard field goal and no problem there.
Nothing now the score to 40 to go in the first quarter.
Steelers have some ground to make up, but it's not impossible.
All right, guys, thanks for joining me again.
Just not real confident in the Steelers today.
Ah, you know, you're in the Ravens house and the Steelers offense over the past two weeks.
Barring the ah, the short time that Mason Rudolph had taken back over here in the Jets game gives you just no reason to expect bacon that they could score even on these, you know, a depleted roster for the Ravens is they rest up and get an extra kind of bye week, you know, And the Ravens, they want to keep the Steelers out.
They said as much during the week.
You know, they don't wanna have to see this team again, you know, even if they feel confident that they can beat him with, Ah, you know, with an active Lamar Jackson and active Mark Ingram.
Marshal Yanda, Earl Thomas Those guys.
Um, but the Steelers were just depleted in all the wrong areas.
You know, last week, even when it seemed like there still could have been hope, you know, James Connor leaves the game early.
Ah, deante Johnson kept getting banged up.
James Washington got banged up marquees.
Pouncey went down in that game, and he's done, uh, out for this game, TJ.
What got injured in that game but pretty got hurt in that game is just It seemed like all you know, the fates were against the Steelers in that game.
You know, both these last two games for the Steelers were both clinching opportunities, and they just couldn't put it all together.
It couldn't overcome the injuries that they've had to overcome the entire season.
So it doesn't appear that you know anything will really change now.
Or at least I would not expect.
So Dunkel, come back out and try to lead this team again.
I think you've got to try to lean a little bit on Benny Snell.
See if you can get him going.
Don't put this whole thing on Duck, Hodges.
It's in the rain.
It's against the Ravens.
You know, for once this entire season, you you kind of got to change things up and lean heavily on the run game.
I think in this game, yes, right And that Dr went nine plays, 61 yards and ate up about four and 1/2 minutes o'clock.
So too long drives by the Ravens.
Neither of them are able to get into the end zone.
They both stall out after eating up quite a bit of a clock and yardage, but both result and Justin Tucker field goals as Tucker booms this one away again out of the back of the end zone, where Jack Oh, or all right, duck in the shotgun gives it to Benny Snail and he powers forward.
But he'll get stopped by a host of Ravens after a gain of about two.
Many Snell fun personality.
You know, Mike Tomlin loves him as a player hopeful to be a big contributor.
Career progresses, hasn't had a lot of opportunities this season.
He's been banged up a lot, uh, as have the entire Steelers offense.
This one is a gift to smell again.
He finds a bit of a crease, picks up a about six to bring up third and two.
Why, no or so 3rd 2 would creep up on the one and 1/2 minute mark.
Jalen Samuels motions to join Duck Hodges in the backfield.
Duck will drop back to pass.
Gets it over to Deante Johnson, who's running away from Marlon Humphrey before he's brought down at the Excuse me 45 yard line.
There is a marker on the field, and it's offside on Humphrey so that play will stand in its entirety and the 1st 1st down of the game for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Next, the Hodges fakes to give fakes a screenplay.
He might have to give it toe Washington anyway.
He opts to throw it out of bounds.
Broken play from the start.
In second and 10 now upcoming.
Hodges now stands at one for four and 11 yards.
That one completion on the ah player before last.
Deante Johnson, Washington In motion to the top.
This is a toss for care with White, and he tries to power forward.
He's a smaller back, but he's got some great to him.
Gain of about three.
So third and seven now.
The Seals were three for 14 on 3rd 3rd down conversions a week ago.
Hodges standing tall in the pocket.
He's got all day to throw, slings it deep and finds Deante Johnson on the sideline for a huge game.
Deante Johnson has arguably been the number one receiver for the Steelers this season, and he comes up with a big play there.
Steelers are now looking to be in scoring range.
A good deep throw from Duck Hodges.
You don't see a lot of deep throws from him, but he's able to put that one over Marcus Peters, who thought that he could jump that route.
Good throw from Duck.
That's the end of the first quarter of the Ravens.
Hold a six nothing lead over the Steelers, but the Steelers are pressing, looking for their first points of the game.
Right? All right, guys, again.

For all of my play by play calls, I'll be back for the Alabama Michigan Citrus Bowl on New Year's Day and all.
They also I might find, ah, one New Year's Eve ball to do and then I'll definitely be back for the playoffs next week.
Probably called one a f C Game one NFC game and do that until the Super Bowl rolls around.
We'll also do, Ah, college football playoff national championship game between the Clemson and L S U Tigers.
I think that's gonna be a super fun game.
Ah, I think l issues got all the momentum in the world.
You know, Clemson and Ohio State matched up really well.
Neither team really was tested throughout the season, and that was their first real test.
Um, l issue has been tested all year.
They've played a much tougher schedule and they played better competition.
Um, a lot of that competition, I will admit, did end up being a bad team following you know, l issues victory, but still convincing win over Texas.
Ah, hard fault went over all Burn and a very hard fought win over Alabama.
I, you know, and then the way that they have handedly taking care of their past few opponents.
I think, Ellis, you has what it takes to take it.
Take it all home this year, you know, they got the Heisman winner, and now they're looking to take home that college football playoff trophy for the first time in there.
Not their first national championship, of course, but it is their first championship since Les Miles did it against Ohio State a number of years back.
I think that game was probably about 10 years ago, right? 2008 2009.
So the Steel is pressing, looking for their first points of the game.
Majority of their yards in time of possession has come on this drive.
Two big plays to Deante Johnson.
I've allowed the Steelers to keep third down plays alive six plays and 43 yards so far on this drive, as first and 10 will take place from the 32 yard line, Snell in a single back formation, they'll get to give bounces it to the near side.
He's got a bit of space picks up about seven before he takes himself out of bounds snails, one of those running backs that gets stronger as the game goes along.
The more carries he gets, the better he gets.
So I think this is a good game toe.
To put that to the test proved that is, ah, factual statement for his scouting report.
Wow, the Raiders actually have an opportunity to get into the playoffs.
That's that's bizarro world.
I didn't even I had no idea.
They need both Pittsburgh and Tennessee to lose these games and for Indianapolis to win a game.
Snell gets that Carrie, and he's fighting for the first down, but it appears he'll be just short.
Bring up third and inches.
Now what? And in respect to that Raiders comment, the Colts are winning 10 to 3 over the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Tennessee Titans.
The last I checked as, of course, what I was using to check is not loading.
Last I checked, that game was tied 7 to 7/3 and one for the Steelers single back formation again.
A lot of time tight ends out there as snail gets.
This one breaks loose.
I was looking for the touchdown, but he's brought down the four.
There was a question of whether or not he had fumbled, but the ground appears to have caused that fumble first and goal for the Steelers.
Just a simple dive.
Play up the middle and B J.
Finney gets a great block on the nose tackle their pushes him aside and creates that hole.
And nobody was there for a second line of defense until Smell was already in the red zone.
First and goal from the four.
Give us to smell again, and he wants it.
Determination and effort shown there by Benny Snell Jr.
The rookie running back from Kentucky.
He knows what it's like to play in these hard nose games was a big reason for Kentucky.
Having one of its best seasons in a long, long time a year ago was drugged down by his face mask.
It appeared as he went into the end zone but definitely did cross the plan Before that left me hit the turf.
10 plays, 75 yards, four and 3/4.
Taking off the clock.
That's an impressive drive from the Steelers.
It's not something I know, fully expected from them.
But running the ball is of such importance in this game, and Benny still looks like he could be the bell cow in this ball game for the Steelers.
So the Steelers take the leave just by a point, RG three and company will return to the field on offense in retaliation, 12 50 to go in the second.
Very impressive, Dr Fromthe stealers.
I'm a big fan of Benny Snell.
Um, I was a little, I don't know, skeptical when we drafted him, because I don't know that he can have a great NFL career if he's not starting running back because kind of what we've seen all year.
He doesn't do well when he comes in for one play here to plays there, you know, playing 1/2 here.
You know what I was saying? He's gotta be the bell cow and hit from start to finish and really pound the defense into submission.
And, uh, you see, he's gotten off to a great start doing that in this game.
So, uh, I'm a big fan of his.
I'm a big fan of James Connor as well, so hopefully those two can find a way to be an excellent tandem. Moving forward.
Not sure how much of a future Jalen Samuels honestly has with this team, considering his lack of success is running back, UH, and his ability and spurts as a pass catcher out of the backfield, something that James Connor is fully capable of.
Maybe not to the same degree.
He's gonna have 10 catches in the game, but he's shown to be ineffective weapon out of the backfield when he's been healthy.
But as we wait for the Ravens come out for this next Dr.
I wonder if they'll try to get the passing game going just a little bit more with Orgy three.
See if he's still got that accuracy that he was so ah, so praised for his rookie season.
I mean, everybody forgets, and that was the NFL Rookie of the Year in 2013.
He only threw five interceptions that year.
20 something touch sounds.
He just He had an excellent rookie season, and I you know, I and a lot of other people thought that he was destined for success.
It's injured in that playoff game comes back.
He's just never the same player.
No I I'm sure I'm not the only one that thought that he rushed back for that next season.
Toe to start Week one.
And that really wasn't, you know, such as an important of ah, of a feat, as he made it out to be, really Rush back came back too soon.
That needs still wasn't good.
He still wasn't mentally prepared.
Thio have to deal with Rush around his legs and things of that nature, and he also has never done a real good job of protecting himself when scrambling.
So we'll see if they get the passing game going a little here.
They only need three yards Thio or four yards to be exact to break the 1978 New England Patriots rushing records for a team in a single season that Marcus 3165 yards and the Ravens air just three yards behind it.
They've already rushed for 89 yards in this ball game shotgun formation.
Willis need moves to the top of the formation.
This is a gift to Justice Hill, and he'll be brought down after a gain of one by Bud Dupree.
But Dupree has had an excellent season this year for the Steelers, got into double digits in sacks for the first time in his career.
And what is the contract year? Second and nine now? C J What? Hovering over the center on that play, Stephen Nelson lays a good hit on marquees Brown, but Brown holds that one in to bring up 1/3 1 marquees, Brown has been an exciting rookie.
You know that first week he caught a handful of touchdowns, and it's been a good weapon.
He's managed to stay healthy after all.
You know, that was one of the biggest gripes against him, and his scouting report was.
Could he stay healthy with a £165 frame? He's done a good job this year for the Ravens in the pistol.
Now, excuse me, Ghost.
Edwards takes that one for a first down who tried to kill myself with some water.
That run does break that record that the Ravens were chasing.
They've now got 99 yards in this ball game, Griffin with the play action fake.
He's running away, and he'll be brought down by Bud Dupri and then Cam Heyward, and Bud wants that the count as a sack.
I don't think it will. It will be.
No game could have been that half sect that get him to 11 sacks for the season doesn't appear to be the case.
Second in 10 late blitz coming from Mark Barron on that play and this one hangs up, Stephen Nelson almost comes away with it.
Griffin alone in the backfield.
Empty formation and T.
Watt is wildly offside, and that will assist this third down attempt for the Ravens.
That'll make it 35 and the Titans just took the lead against Houston.
They now sit 14 to 7 Tannehill with yet another touchdown pass, this one a one yard 12 Pruitt.
So Justice Hill comes back into the backfield with RG 3/3 and five bunch formation to the near side Griffin was looking for.
Hill bounces it over, and it's almost intercepted by Devin Bush.
He had it in his breadbasket.
It couldn't hold on through the weather, but that will force the first part of the game for the Ravens.
That one, just out of the reach of the receiver Devin Bush didn't know he had it in his hands.
That was Seth Roberts, the intended receiver.
So Sam Cooke stands a his 34 yard line, ready to put this one away.
Johnson hauls it in at the eight tries to make a guy miss.
He does weasels through and gets up to the 18 10 yard return for Dion, say Johnson, Steelers looking toe.
Preserve their lead and maybe add on to it on this drive.
So in case you did not watch Thea that sample bay Atlanta game, Jameis Winston threw a pick six in overtime to become the first quarterback with 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in a single season.
So that happened.
Well, my stream froze.
Give me a second.
I gotta fix my, uh, my game stream.
All right, guys.
So again, Thanks for joining me. My name is Jacob Harrison.

I'd like to see the Steelers get juju Smith Schuster going here on this game you know, we haven't seen very much of a dude you all year.
Things only got 30 something catches on the year.
Been a really rough season for juju.
And, you know, he's a fan favorite and a lot of people give him grief over.
You know, being a kid, you know, that likes to have a lot of fun off the field.
And people wondered.
Well, is he taking everything seriously? Is he putting in the work to be a number one wide receiver? He's got just 40 catches, 546 yards and three touchdowns on the season.
Steelers need so much more out of him, especially in 2020 next year when Ben Roethlisberger returns.
We'll see if the Steelers will add some veteran leadership to the Steelers locker room because there's not a lot of age in that department.
This one is thrown toe.
He looks to throw one of those patented stiff arms on Clark, but to no avail.
He slung down in a gain of eight.
That was Chuck Clark, who is in today for Earl Thomas.
Clark is 1/3 year player from Virginia Tech.
Tough throw from duck, Hodges was violent, stiff arm attempt, and Clark was just able to get his hands wrapped on the shoulder pads of the title advancement.
Donald Duck under center gives this one to Benny Snail, who picks up the first down before he's brought down by Clark, who's in on another play.
Zach Banner was out there to assist in the run power game.
Benny Snell has been running behind his shoulder pads very well.
It's shown great balance and great determination and grit.
Remember, he's playing for Carrie's next year, where he can probably be the number two back in the backfield behind James Connor.
Eight carries for 45 yards like Man are still out there as an extra offensive lineman.
Tight and kind of guy.
White gets the Carrie and picks up about three on that stretch zone.
We hit the eight minute mark in the second quarter, second and eight for the Steelers.
Jalen Samuels out there at running back next to Duck, Hodges in the shotgun, duck stand strong in the pocket, pump fakes and that one just false through the hands of James Washington, his first target of the game and it's dropped to bring out 3rd 8 Those are The catch is that James Washington's gotta make.
He's real good at catching the difficult ones.
It's the easy ones that tend to give him the most problems.
But he is still come on strong for his second season in the NFL.
Had an excellent, excellent year, and the pressure is on for duck.
He spends away and gets this one away to McDonald great catch by the tight end, and he picks up the first down before he's upended out of bounds.
Great play from Duck and from McDonald as we talked about James Washington the year he's had.
He's had 44 receptions, 735 yards and three touchdowns coming into the game.
And that holding Cole like, was on the Ravens defense.
And I agree with the CBS callers that Ah, that one was kind of a ticky tack call, but nevertheless, first down for the Steelers, College is starting to settle down and play well, This one, given the care with White off the edge and he gets wrapped up and brought down for a four yard loss.
Steelers going in the wrong direction on that play and a flag in.
The indication is that it is holding on the Steelers.
Yeah, that holding was called on Alejandro Villain.
A wave of the left tackle of the Steelers.
Former Army Ranger tied in and in college play defense line for the Eagles before he was brought over on the practice squad for the Steelers and eventually took over as the teams left tackle.
Quite the career for Allie.
So now second and 14 carat white remains the running back duck Hodges barking orders to his offense.
Ravens crowd The line of scrimmage again.
Looks like they're bringing blitz, and they are duck.
Hodges can't get rid of it.
He's brought down for the sack.
The free safety comes in on the blitz, untouched hers.
So now third and 21 comes up.
Expect the white flag run here.
They will throw it a bit of pressure.
Fiance Johnson gets the reception, makes one man miss another and gets brought down at the original line of scrimmage.
Maybe a bit more gain of probably 11 or 12 but it's still gonna bring up.
Just helps the Steelers in field position.
Battle after that, Dr Bogged down with negative plays for So Berry stands at his own 32 to put this one away.
But he gets it away, No problem, but sends it into the back of the end zone.
Bring it to the 20 so 5 16 to go in the first half.
Steelers hold a one point lead over the Ravens.
All right, guys, again.
Thanks for joining me on this stream.
This is just the first half stream.
So when the second herbal in half time arrives, this dream will end and I'll put up another stream for the second half.
Good game so far.
Good defensive battle.
Both teams are relying on the run game very heavily with their quarterback situations.
Very fast moving game as well.
With all this run with all the rushing attempts, and I greatly appreciate that just to check in on the other guests see is winning over Houston.
Been Indianapolis old 10 6 lead over the Jaguars set on that rate.
Well, since they have to win the game, what was going to It's so the Ravens on that previous Dr tried to get things going with RG Verena didn't really work out so well.
Spee kind of what their intentions are now.
There's about five minutes ago in the in the first half, Steelers with lone points of this quarter, the Ravens were able to drive the field and get field goals out of them from Justin Tucker.
So a bunch formation Ravens Aaron the Pistol Griffin fakes to give the Edwards rolls to his right, and he might just run with this.
He does picks up a first down after he gets a good block gain of about 16 on that play Griffin show, and he still has the wheels and just an excellent pick up by the Ravens to service the backup for Lamar Jackson, a smart player who can fill into the offense when Jackson isn't available and can also teach him how to be an effective improviser quarterback in the NFL full house pistol formation here, Gus Edwards is the fake.
Griffin keeps it, bounces to the outside and is brought down by Terrell Edmund's gain of four on the play.
Ravens are averaging 6.
6 yards per rush in this game.
They've been very dominant on the ground is the four minute mark passes anti backfield TJ.
What comes on the pressure and swats it down and put the liquor on RG three as well, and he'll get a flag for that effort.
He batted the ball down and still put his hands on RG three.
And that's an easy 15 yards.
Yeah, just an unnecessary shove from T.
Watt and quarterbacks in the NFL are going to get that every time.
So first and 10 now for the Ravens after the penalty ball sits at the 45 Steelers territory, this gift is to Gus Edwards.
My apologies, TJ.
Why is able to wrap up RG three in the back field now Bud, Dupri and Griffin are tangled up on the ground.
And how incredible is that, T.
J? What? Straight up on Lee went toe toe punch.
The ball out was so confident.
Do that me really punched the left arm of RG three.
You know that didn't feel good and was still able to compose himself after he misses his punch and wrap him up for the tackle for a lost two yard loss on the play Fakes a pass and wow! RG three drop back entirely way too far before he was brought down and pressured by Bud Do free and then just launched it to the line of scrimmage.
Not sure that he had a receiver in the area.
He was well out of the tackle box.
So it over Amane third and 12.
He met the requirements to throw that one away.
Three receivers to the top of the formation, including Tight and Hayden Hearst.
Gus Edwards is next to RG three.
RG three steps up in the pocket.
Slings it out, gets it toe.
Hurts for a gain of a belt.
Three Showing off the arm strength on that throw.
A great play by Griffin.
It does, though it a bit behind Hayden Hearst.
Just having fun, his first start in three years since he played for the Cleveland Browns and Bud do pre getting worked on his neck on the sideline.
Anthony Chick, Hello is out there for him.
Griffin accidentally trips up Gus Edwards, but he still picks up about four on the play for Isaiah Bugs.
Vince Williams and Dan McCullers are there to stop him that bring up the two minute warning.
The Ravens are threatening to retake the lead.
RG three is confident and playing well.
Okay, all right, guys again, a reminder that when the when half time arrives, the stream will end.
I'll move to, Ah, another stream just before the second half starts.
My name's J comparison.

Then he given football game.
I'll be back for the, Ah, Alabama and Michigan Citrus Bowl on New Year's Day.
I'll probably find I will most likely find a game to do on New Year's Eve as well.
And then I will be back next week for the playoffs, regardless of whether or not the Steelers were in that situation, Um, if they are, I will call their game.
I will also find one game to call on Saturday and probably do that throughout the playoffs.
Well, we'll also call the Super Bowl and the national championship games as well.
I got to say, you know, the season, the way it's gone, You know, of course I want my team to make the playoffs.
I want Steele is to win this game.
I want Titans to lose two Texans.
You know all those sorts of things.
But I feel very confident the Titans will not lose that game and they'll clinch that spot.
Uh, regardless of what the Steelers you're able to do today.
Um, but I got to say, I was a huge fan of Robert Griffin the third when he was drafted.
Ah, and I thought that he he really just didn't get a fair shake in the NFL.
You know, I lost a lot of respect for the Washington Redskins organization with the way they handled him, and then they turned around and you know, the guy that replaced him with it.
They wouldn't pay him, either.
And now Kirk Cousins is leading the Vikings to the playoffs, playing really good football for himself.
A cz Well, um, so it's it's it's a good thing to see Robert Griffin the third out here, playing well, playing you know, playing really well and having a lot of fun.
You know, You showed a little ****iness and little little abrasiveness trying to have some fun in this game.
And now second in six is upcoming, and Ah, my stream kind of quit on me.
You mean just second.
I gotta restart my stream ground.
Well, stuff happens.
The Ravens were not able to get anything going on.
Those two plays, all in all resulted in 1/4 and seven now and Justin Tucker's back out to kick a field goal and try to retake this lead.
42 yard attempt.
Oh, he was good from 47 earlier.
Also had a 22 yard attempt.
Bud Dupree is back out there for this one as well.
Good to see him on the field.
Tucker's kick is up.
And, of course, no question about it. It's good.
Justin Tucker, Good for its many points.
There's are on his jersey, 9 to 7.
The Steelers will have a minute 10 toe work with.
All right, guys, a fast first half.
Good to see it go down like that again.
This stream will end at halftime and all right heart.
Another one after I'm Tennessee leads Houston 14 to 7, half fairly certain Indianapolis still holds a lead over the Jaguars.
They hold a 16 13 lead over.
The Jaguars will let it go in the first half.
The Raiders are currently talk.
They struck to see if they can find their way into the playoffs.
Shouldn't Titans and the Steelers lose their games and the Colts continue to hold off the Jaguars? So a minute and 10 gets to work with the Steelers? As Tucker will kick this one month, it'll likely go out of the back of the end zone. It does not.
White will field it at the seven, takes it up.
He's passed the 25 bowls over a group of players and falls at the 28 a minute.
Five is what Duck Hodges we'll have to work with in this game.
Pittsburgh's offense will have its full slate of time outs started the 29 yard line.
Ravens bring four.
The pressure still gets home, but Samuels brings this one in.
Picks up 15 before he's out of bounds, picks up the first down 59 seconds on the clock.
So first and 10 now from the 45 low snap yet again, pressure is on.
Duck gets that one out to James.
Excuse me to juju, but he's unable to bring it in still without a catch in this ball game.
So second and 10 now for the Steelers low snap again.
Duck handles that when he gets pressured, he fumbles the ball.
Jalen Samuels can't fall on it.
The big nose tackle Michael Pearce recovers it at the 22 45 seconds on the clock.
This the pressure was come was brought again by the Ravens defense.
Matthew Jude on gets back there and Saxon and forced the fumble.
Duck was just careless with the ball there.
Jalen Samuels wasn't able to fall on it, and it slipped right back up into the hands of Michael Pierce.
Michael Michael Pierce, a Sanford man in his own right.
So now excellent field position for the Ravens.
They're at the 23.
Gus Edwards goes in motion to the top of the formation to leave RG three all alone in the backfield, and there's a flag on the play before this one gets started.
No call A false start on marquees Brown.
These three games first and 15 now from the 28 empty formation.
Steelers bring four.
RG three gets it out quick to Gus Edwards, and Mark Baron meets him.
The stalemate still goes in favor of Edwards, who picks up a yard, but he's brought down inbounds.
Ravens take their first time out of the game, 37 seconds.
Still on the clock.
It's so second and 13 for the Ravens.
No steps up in the pocket.
Gets it out to Willie Snead, who's brought down by Devin Bush, Brought down at the 18 yard line.
Another time out for Baltimore.
What? It's all right.
Rain that started to come down much heavier than it was at the beginning of the game, 32 seconds on the clock.
One timeout left for Baltimore, and they're facing 1/3 and five late blitz from Pittsburgh.
What? Tried to swat that one away couldn't do it.
Justice Hill finds the edge on Mark.
Barron picks up the first down has put out of bounds inside the 10 of the eight.
So first and goal from the eight for the Ravens give the Hill Powers through one tackler and threw the rest for a touchdown.
Ravens extend their lead off the turnover from Duck Hodges.
Justice Hill, in for an eight yard touchdown, took him four planes to capitalize on the turnover, while Edmonds couldn't bring him down, Neither could Stephen Nelson at the goal line, and Justice Hill takes it in himself for the score.
Tucker's extra point, No question.
Lead extends 16 to 7 over the Steelers and with just 21 seconds to G o would expect boring.
A big return, which shouldn't be expected to steal, is one of the worst return teams in the NFL.
Steelers will let this one go toe the locker room care with whites on his own. Five.
This is a pooch kick from Justin Tucker.
It'll be returned by Snell Powers forward, but the 29 yard line on you are sore.
It was on the tackle.
We'll see what Ah, the Steelers want to do here.
They do have all three time outs, but dark Hodges is their quarterback.
Pretty and on will.
Soar was injured after that tackle, and, of course, Steelers will kneel this one down.
They'll eat the nine point deficit they currently suffer and head to the locker room.
They've gotta win.
They need Tennessee to lose.
Neither of those things were happening right now.
The Steelers trail 16 to 7.
The Titans lead 14 to 7 over Houston playoff spot on the line.
The six seed and the right to expectedly go to Foxboro and face Tom Brady's New England Patriots in a wild card match up next week.
Steelers trail 16 to 7.
All right, guys.
Like I said, I'm gonna end this stream and I'll be back just before the second half kicks off again.
