This week's five stats that stand out focus heavily on the Pittsburgh Steelers passing game, the Ravens' ability to stop them, and of course, the injuries that have hampered the Ravens this season but haven't slowed Pittsburgh.
Wide receiver Steve Smith's 61-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter off a pass that deflected off the hands of Owen Daniels set the tone for the Ravens in a 38-10 dismantling of the overmatched Carolina Panthers in front of an announced 71,218 at M&T Bank Stadium.
All eyes will be on wide receiver Steve Smith, who faces the organization he played with for 13 seasons. While Joe Flacco will undoubtedly look to get Smith the ball early, he needs receivers Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown to be more involved in the passing game.
Chances are a running back will be the first player to come off the board in your fantasy league unless one of your fellow owners has a serious crush on Michael Vick or is the father/mother/sibling/spouse of a current NFL player. Running backs no longer the first dozen players off the board in fantasy football -- and honestly, that makes things much more interesting -- but an elite back is still the way to go if you're picking first overall.
