Baltimore Ravens

Game Preview: Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

The Baltimore Ravens (0-3) will visit the Pittsburgh Steelers (2-1) this week for a Thursday Night Football matchup at Heinz Field. As the only team in the AFC North currently without a win, the Ravens are eager to get their season back on track. And while the Steelers are currently second in the division, they may face an uphill battle on Thursday without their starting quarterback. Ben Roethlisberger is expected to miss several weeks this season after sustaining a bone bruise and sprained MCL to his left knee last Sunday. Backup quarterback Michael Vick will start in place of Roethlisberger. Despite the advantage that Roethlisberger’s absence might give the Ravens, QB Joe Flacco seemed disappointed that the Steelers would be missing their starting quarterback. “Shoot, I’d love to have Ben be playing in this game and going up against him for another time,” Flacco told the media in a recent press conference. “It’s not that way, but it’s still just as important, it’ll be just as fun, just as big of a game.” Make sure you are there to see the next big Ravens game in person.

The game may end up being slightly more fun for the Ravens. The Ravens have a 5-1 record against the Steelers when they’re missing Roethlisberger. That being said, it should be noted that four-time Pro Bowler Michael Vick is no slouch when it comes to making big plays, even if his star has dimmed over the past several years. “It’s going to be a very tough matchup, even without Ben Roethlisberger,” said Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith. “Michael Vick is still very capable of running the offense, so we’ll have our hands full.” As far as injuries for the Ravens, the team released an injury report on Tuesday that revealed DL Chris Canty (calf), TE Crockett Gillmore (calf) and WR Breshad Perriman (knee), all did not participate in Monday’s practice. Offensive tackle Eugene Monroe (concussion) was a limited participant. After Thursday’s game in Pittsburgh, the Ravens will return home to face the Cleveland Browns at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday, October 11.
