Pittsburgh leads the all-time series 32-24, including a 29-23 regular season advantage.

Kickoff from M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET.

Featured game | Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Why the Ravens can cover

Quarterback Lamar Jackson (knee) will miss Sunday’s showdown, so Baltimore will turn to backup Tyler Huntley. Huntley did an admirable job replacing Jackson, completing 61 of 91 passes (67%) for 528 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He also carried 36 times for 113 yards (3.1 average) and a touchdown. He converted 10 first tries. He was 9 of 17 (52.9%) for 115 yards and a touchdown in last week’s 17-9 win over Atlanta.

Running back JK Dobbins has played well since returning from injury. In the first game against the Steelers, he carried 15 times for 120 yards (8.0 average) and a touchdown. He followed that up with 13 carries for 125 yards (9.6 average) in a 13-3 loss at Cleveland on Dec. 17. Dobbins had 427 yards on 75 attempts (5.7 average) and two touchdowns in seven games in 2022.

Why the Steelers can cover

Rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett returned from a concussion to help lead Pittsburgh past Las Vegas last Saturday. In that game, he completed 26 of 39 passes (66.7%) for 244 yards, one touchdown and one interception. For the season, he completed 217 of 333 passes (65.2%) for 2,041 yards and five touchdowns with nine interceptions. However, he has only thrown one pick since October 30. He also carried 47 times for 234 yards (5.0 average) and three touchdowns.

Running back Najee Harris also helps power the Steelers offense. In 15 games this season, he carried 227 times for 843 yards (3.7 average) and six touchdowns. He has a big 36 yard game and has 36 first conversions. Harris was also a force in the passing game with 38 receptions for 207 yards (5.4 average) and two touchdowns. In the win over Las Vegas, Harris carried 16 times for 53 yards (3.3 average) and caught six passes for 42 yards (7.0 average).
