The Steelers have plenty of room for improvement and that is ultimately what will make or break them on Thursday against the Ravens. Last week, the Steelers defense allowed the Browns to score on four straight possessions. They will have to find a way to stop the Ravens’ offense from moving the ball down the field and interrupt the Ravens’ running game as much as they can to have a chance of defeating them.

The Ravens are still trying to figure out their running game, as evidenced in their loss last week to the Bengals. Quarterback Joe Flacco needs to get the offense going in the right direction and the Ravens receivers need to increase their control of the ball if they want to win on Thursday.

The Steelers will be playing on Thursday without RB Dri Archer, who was injured in last week’s game against the Browns. WR Lance Moore will also be sitting out this week’s game after sitting out last week as well.

The Ravens will be playing without RB Ray Rice for rest of the season, as his contract with the team was terminated after video surfaced of him knocking out his then-fiancée in an elevator during an altercation, and then dragging her limp body into a hallway. CB Ladarius Webb is listed as questionable for the game on Thursday.

Latest Line – The Ravens are favored to win by 3.

The game will be close, as both teams are pretty evenly matched, but the Ravens’ offense will be the deciding factor in the Ravens winning on Thursday.
