The Ravens are in need of a win badly. They sit at 0-3 on the year and have a division loss to the Cincinnati Bengals at home last week losing 28-24. The team has issues defending the pass and their run game is not going. The Ravens are allowing 291 yards passing per game which is 29th in the league. Other than the loss to the Bengals the team has dropped games on the road to Denver and Oakland. The loss to the Raiders was bad as the team surrendered 37 points and coughed up a three point lead as they allowed Oakland to drive for the game winning touchdown throw from 12 yards with just 26 seconds remaining. The Ravens gave up 351 passing yards and three touchdown throws to second year quarterback Derek Carr. Baltimore is hoping that Justin Forsett can find his 2014 form. Thus far in 2015 Forsett has just 124 rushing yards on 39 carries for 3.2 yards per rush average. He ran for 5.4 yards a carry in 2014.
The Steelers enter play with a mark of 2-1. After the Patriots loss to open the season the team posted wins at home to San Francisco and last week at St Louis they win 12-6. The win was costly as Pittsburgh will lose Ben Roethlisberger for 4-6 weeks with an MCL sprain. Michael Vick starts at quarterback on Thursday night. His past two stops in New York and Philadelphia didn’t work out too well as Vick dealt with accuracy and turnover issues.
