Pittsburgh has everything to lose

The Pittsburgh Steelers are on the road to take on the Baltimore Ravens this afternoon. Baltimore has ruled out several starters and key contributors, including MVP to be Lamar Jackson. Odell Beckham Jr. and Zay Flowers won’t play this afternoon, either.

So it’ll be up to Tyler Huntley and the Ravens’ backups to get the job done offensively. They’ll be without guard Kevin Zeitler as well. Baltimore will also miss two of their better defensive players in Kyle Hamilton and Marlon Humphrey.

It’s still the Ravens and their culture. Despite all of the injuries, John Harbaugh’s club is only an underdog of 3 points on DraftKings Sportsbook with a low total of 33.5.

Mason Rudolph will be the quarterback to help the Steelers make the postseason. The career backup looked like a Hall of Famer against the Seahawks a week ago. Here’s how Pittsburgh can make the playoffs:

  • Steelers win and a Colts-Texans tie
  • Steelers win and Buffalo loss
  • Steelers win and a Jaguars loss/tie
  • Steelers tie and Colts and Texans do not tie and Jaguars lose
  • (Even with a Steelers loss) Colts and Texans do not tie, Jaguars lose and Broncos win
