The Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens rivalry has always been a crucial part in the Nation Football League, and this Thursday will be no different. The 6-4 Ravens will travel to Pittsburgh to take on the undefeated 10-0 Steelers. The boys in black and gold come into this game firing on all cylinders, with veteran QB Ben Roethlisberger leading the charge. Rookie wide receiver Chase Claypool continues to find success, putting up 10 touchdowns in 10 games, which makes him the first wide receiver in the Super Bowl era to do so. The defense also continues to dominate as a whole. They are currently ranked 1st in overall defense, 1st in the pass rush, 4th in run defense, and 7th in coverage says the PFF. Coach Mike Tomlin comes into Thursday night’s game saying “we’ll be ready to match the Ravens”. Holding the current number 1 seed in the AFC, the Steelers have a massive target on their back


 On the other hand, the Ravens started the season with a great record of 5-1, but in recent weeks they have lost 3 of their last 4 games. Last season’s MVP Lamar Jackson has struggled as of late, putting up an average of just 195 passing yards per game. But this week will come with even more struggle, the Ravens will be without their top two running backs in Mark Ingram and rookie star J.K. Dobbins due to COVID-19 Protocol. After last week’s loss in overtime to Derrick Henry and the Tennessee Titans, the team looks to come back in a big way and spoil the Steelers perfect record.


Although we do not know who will win Thursday night, we do know one thing, and that is that there is never a dull moment when the Baltimore Ravens roll into Pittsburgh. With the entire world watching, this Thanksgiving night dogfight between two of the NFL’s giants is shaping up to be nothing short of a classic.
