    Default Who Lolley likes - Baltimore version

    Who I like - Baltimore version

    This should be a very interesting game on Sunday night, one with a great deal on the line.

    A victory by the Steelers would put them a game up on Baltimore in the division race and split the season series. Baltimore would lose the tiebreaker at this point, based on the Steelers having a better division record.

    A win by the Ravens would all but guarantee them the division title based on having beaten the Steelers twice.

    Much has been made about Ben Roethlisberger's injured foot, but it could be a blessing in disguise for Pittsburgh.

    The injury is at its worst when Roethlisberger has to drop back, plant his injured right foot and throw.

    How do you guarantee he doesn't have to do a lot of that? Go to the shotgun.

    The Steelers haven't used their no-huddle offense much this season, but Roethlisberger's injury could force them to do so.

    And much like the Steelers, the way to hurt the Ravens is to spread them out. Roethlisberger excels in that kind of attack.

    At this point in his career, that's not what Joe Flacco does best.

    The key player for the Steelers could be Mewelde Moore, who has become a player Roethlisberger looks to on third downs. The Steelers will split him out wide and have him run patterns out of the backfield. He's very good at finding the soft spots in a zone or beating man coverage.

    The same could be said of Baltimore's Ray Rice, who is second on the team behind Anquan Boldin with 47 catches.

    This group of Steelers has also always thrived when they get an "us against the world" mentality. It certainly has that this week.

    This is also a group that went into Baltimore last season without Roethlisberger, Aaron Smith and Troy Polamalu and took the Ravens into overtime before losing.

    They'll beat the Ravens this time around, 24-23.

    Amazing that everyone under the sun knows we should spread the Ravens, or any tough front 7 for that matter, out cause the run just won't be successful.....yet if Ben wasn't injured we would not do that. Arians is such a tool and Tomlin as well for not telling Arians to fix his ****.
