The Pittsburgh Steelers need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive after splitting their last six games. The Pittsburgh Steelers have split their last six road games. Mason Rudolph is completing 62.2 percent of his passes for 1,765 yards, 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Rudolph and Delvin Hodges have combined for 18 touchdown passes and 17 interceptions. James Washington and Diontae Johnson have combined for 1,361 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while JuJu Smith-Schuster has 40 receptions.

Defensively, Pittsburgh is allowing 18.3 points and 304.1 yards per game. Terrell Edmunds leads the Pittsburgh Steelers with 98 tackles, T.J. Watt has 14 sacks and Minkah Fitzpatrick has five interceptions.

The Baltimore Ravens look to keep the ball rolling while building on their 11-game winning streak. The Baltimore Ravens have won five straight home games.

The Steelers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. AFC North, 5-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Ravens are 5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, 6-0 ATS in their last 6 vs. AFC and 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The under is 19-7 in Steelers last 26 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Ravens last 7 vs. AFC North. The road team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The underdog is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The under is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Baltimore.

The Pittsburgh Steelers need this game more than the Ravens who have the top seed in the AFC wrapped up and should be 100 percent focused on staying healthy and making a Super Bowl run. It wouldn't be shocking to see Lamar Jackson sit this one out, meaning Robert Griffin III gets the nod at QB. Even with that being the case, I have to side with the Ravens. The Pittsburgh Steelers have no offense to speak of with Rudolph and Hodges at quarterback and just lost to the Jets. The Baltimore Ravens are still a talented team no matter who plays under center and they'll be up in hopes of making sure their division rival is watching the postseason from the couch. I'll lay the field goal.
