One of the AFC’s most bitter rivalries resumes as you watch Sunday Night Football online free or on NBC tonight. The Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers have already met once this season, a 26-6 Ravens win in September. While both teams are 5-3, the Steelers have won two straight while the Ravens lost last week. Watch Baltimore Ravens vs Pittsburgh Steelers online free Sunday Night Football live streaming to see if the Ravens can get back on track.
Baltimore hasn’t swept the Steelers in three years. In September their win came three days after releasing running back Ray Rice. Joe Flacco passed for just 166 yards, but he was an effective 21-for-29 with two TDs. Flacco also got help from running back Bernard Pierce, who assumed Rice’s role and gained 96 of the Ravens’ 157 yards on the ground.
Last week Flacco was 17 of 34 for 195 yards with two interceptions and a sack in a 24-27 loss to the Bengals. That was an anomaly, and Flacco’s poised to play better. But he’ll have to do so against a tougher Steelers defense as you watch Baltimore Ravens vs Pittsburgh Steelers online free Sunday Night Football live streaming tonight.
Ironically, it’s not the Pittsburgh defense that’s stealing headlines this year but their offense. Pittsburgh is in the top 10 in points scored (25.6) and rushing yards (127.1), while their 418.2 total yards per game ranks third and 291.1 passing yards ranks fourth.
Those stats begin and end with QB Ben Roethlisberger and RBs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount. In last week’s 51-34 win over the Colts, Roethlisberger set a single-game franchise record with 522 passing yards, a franchise record with six TD passes and a record of 40 completions. Meanwhile, Bell and Blount combined for 113 yards rushing.
Suddenly the Ravens sweeping the season series doesn’t look as simple as Baltimore would like it to. Here are some important game-time details as you prepare to watch Baltimore Ravens vs Pittsburgh Steelers online free Sunday Night Football live streaming.
