1. Can the Baltimore Ravens edge rushers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers weak tackles?
The Pittsburgh Steelers have a weakness at tackle. Chukwuma Okorafor has been average, or slightly below that, to the start of the season. On the left side, Dan Moore has been a liability. He is expected to miss this game, and rookie Broderick Jones is expected to make his first start.
Jones was a former top-15 pick, but this is still all pretty new to him. So, it would be nice for the Ravens to give him a proper introduction. Do they have the horses?
The injury report is looking promising, but it is hard to see either Odafe Oweh or Tyus Bowser suiting up this week. With David Ojabo out for the year, the duo of Jaeveon Clowney and Kyle Van Noy will take on the Steelers, with Tavius Robinson and Jeremiah Moon backing things up. This is not the toughest group the Steelers have seen, even though Clowney has played great. Still, the Steelers have faced Nick Bosa, Myles Garrett, Will Anderson, and Maxx Crosby as high-end pass rushers. Is this a week where things lighten up for their tackles? Can the Ravens expose the rookie, or is a lot of Tavius Robinson just what the first-round pick needs to gain confidence?
