Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: 3 predictions for SNF
Here are three predictions for Sunday Night Football when the Baltimore Ravens take on the Pittsburgh Steelers:
3. Joe Flacco continues to shine:
The biggest thing the Ravens have going for them is that Joe Flacco is playing at a Pro Bowl level in the first portion of the season. Flacco has thrown for almost 900 yards and six touchdowns in the first three games. The first half of the Bengals game was a struggle for Flacco, however he hasn’t had a game with bad numbers. The quarterback is the most important part of a winning team in the NFL. Flacco is the biggest reason the Ravens are 2-1 and looking like one of the better teams in the league.
Flacco has a group of receivers that he has a great chemistry with. It’s evident that Flacco has a strong connection with John Brown. Brown is a good deep threat and the Steelers defense has trouble against the deep pass. Ryan Fitzpatrick may have played a mistake riddled game on Monday Night Football but he still had a huge stat line. Flacco will avoid those mistakes and continue to play sharp.
This is the best Flacco has looked since 2014. This could be a defining time in his career and this game could be one that we remember him for. The weight of the Ravens success lands on Joe Flacco and for the first time in a long time, that shouldn’t make the Ravens Flock nervous.
