Baltimore Ravens: Building A Defense To Stop The Steelers
The Bottom Line:
The Steelers offense is their strength and the Ravens need to beat the Steelers. Ozzie Newsome has two options. He can try to match their ability to light up the scoreboard, or he can prevent them from making the scoreboard operator busy in the first place. The most realistic answer is to lean on defense. Who wants to get into as shootout at Heinz Field with the Steelers?
The Ravens have to make stopping Bell their number one priority. With Bell bottled up they can clamp down on Brown. With his best play-makers stifled, Roethlisberger will try to do too much. This will create big plays for the Ravens in the form of sacks, interceptions, fumbles. If there is one player the Ravens Flock loves to see get pulverized, it’s Big Ben. Newsome knows what the Ravens have to do. They have to make Roethlisberger’s life miserable.
