3. Gus Edwards over 43.5 rushing yards for Baltimore Ravens

Gus Edwards has gone over this total for the past three weeks. He has 62 yards in week two, then 52 yards and 48 yards in week four. All of that while he was on the injury report and missed parts of week three. So, he is healthy now, and this may be the worst run defense he has seen all year. Either this unit or the Bengals, which he had 6.2 yards per carry and 62 yards against.

Christian McCaffrey went for 152 yards against the Steelers. Jerome Ford went for 106, Josh Jacobs went for 62, and Dameon Pierce went for 81 yards. The leading rusher gets more than 50 yards when they play the Steelers.

Gus Edwards has shown to be the leading rusher. Justice Hill is banged up, and Melvin Gordon does not bring enough speed to contrast him. Besides that, when the Ravens have the lead, they like to ride Edwards. The Ravens currently sit at 4.5-point favorites, so if they salt the game away, look for three straight rushes from Edwards to boost his yardage total.

Edwards has had success this year, and the Steelers' run defense is without Cameron Heyward and struggling. Look for Edwards to play well.
