This past week has been a gauntlet of distractions. But Pittsburgh is the better team, especially with the Ravens losing starting quarterback Lamar Jackson. Head coach Mike Tomlin must have his team ready to play and just focus on this game, not looking ahead.

Pittsburgh is going to be without starting running back James Conner but this shouldn't matter. Pittsburgh has proven they can just hand the offense to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and things will be just fine. Look for a heavy dose of the short passing game, letting all that young talent at wide receiver make plays.

Don't underestimate Robert Griffin III

Baltimore is going to come out and try to establish the run. This job is made easier thanks to the last postponement that should allow running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram to play. The Steelers cannot take what Robert Griffin can do or the Ravens might just run all over them, especially minus Stephon Tuitt on the defensive line.
