Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Should Defeat the Baltimore Ravens in NFL Week 2

The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens have the Early Bird Game in the NFL Week 2. Yes, it is Thursday night and the Ravens will look to win their first game of the season after losing in Week 1 to the Cincinnati Bengals 23-16. Steelers’ will try to spoil the Ravens first game in front of the home crowd. Ben Roethlisberger was solid in the Steelers’ win over Cleveland in NFL Week 1 with 365 passing yards, 1 touchdown, and he completed 67.6 percent of his passes. He only threw 1 pick in their narrow 30-27 victory. The Baltimore-Pittsburgh is an AFC North rivalry game; therefore, you should expect some hard hits from both defenses.

Despite having 0-1 record, the Ravens are picked by the experts to win by 2.5 points. To win their first game of the season, Baltimore will have to keep Big Ben from beating them. The Ravens are usually good against the run; therefore, do not look for a 100 yard games out of Le‚ÄôVeon Bell nor LeGarrette Blount. The Ravens cannot be distracted by what is going on with former Raven Ray Rice. As professionals, this team will have to focus on the gameplan needed to stop the Steelers’ passing game. A good running game by the Ravens will also help them notch their first win.

Pittsburgh looked like they could do no wrong against Cleveland in the first half with a 27-3 lead. However, both uthe offense and defense went to sleep until they finally managed to win the game with a field goal. You cannot let that happen in Thursday’s game. Steelers’ must play better against the run than they did in the Week 1. Secondary must be ready for one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL in Joe Flacco. Flacco passed for 345 yards in the loss to the Bengals. The Steelers does not want a repeat performance.

NFL Week 2, Pittsburgh moves to 2-0. I cannot see the Steelers playing as poorly as they did against the run in week 1. Ravens maybe distracted enough to let another game slip away. It should be interesting to watch just how this game will unfold. Baltimore Ravens Tickets
