Baltimore Sun picks for Ravens-Steelers game

Monique Jones

Ravens 21, Steelers 14

The Steelers finally recorded their first win of the season, but they have too many unknowns as they take on the Ravens this week. Expect the Ravens' defense to contribute points off of turnovers.

Mike Preston

Ravens 21, Steelers 17

The Steelers will play hard, but the Ravens will take their hearts and seal their fate for the rest of the season.

Peter Schmuck

Ravens 23, Steelers 9

The Steelers got off the floor long enough to beat the struggling Jets, but they can't run the ball and the Ravens pass rush will be too much for Big Ben. Look for a workmanlike, but more efficient, Ravens offense.

Matt Vensel

Steelers 20, Ravens 17

The Steelers are still getting their act together, but this rivalry brings out the best of both teams. With Big Ben back and this game being played at Heinz Field, the Steelers narrowly take Round 1.

Aaron Wilson

Ravens 27, Steelers 16

Having reached something approaching a season crossroads, the Ravens will reassert themselves as an AFC North contender against their old division rival behind a strong pass rush and old-school blocking schemes.

Jeff Zrebiec

Ravens 19, Steelers 16

The names and faces of the rivalry may change, but the Ravens and Steelers always play tight games, and I don't expect this one to be any different. Joe Flacco gets it done at Heinz Field again with a late scoring drive.

Stan "The Fan" Charles

Ravens 19, Steelers 16

It's gut-check time for the defending Super Bowl champions. And it is double-gut-check time for the once proud Steelers franchise. This is the game the Ravens simply have to run the football effectively. I think they'll get over 100 yards rushing and come away with a hard-earned W.
