NFL game tonight | Steelers vs Ravens
The Ravens will be without several starters in this one, most notably quarterback Lamar Jackson. In addition to Jackson, Mark Andrews and Willie Snead are expected to miss this game as well, among a plethora of others. The Ravens offense was already struggling to get going this season as teams have adapted to their run-heavy offense. It’s going to be even more difficult for them without their stars on offense.
How do the teams adjust?
Robert Griffin III will be tasked with taking over as the starting quarterback. He hasn’t started an NFL game that matters since 2016, but that changes tonight. It’s a tall order to ask him to lead a Ravens team to victory without their top weapons, yet that’s exactly what he’ll be asked to do. Expect a ton of work for J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram on the ground now that both have been cleared to play in Wednesday’s contest.
Meanwhile, the Steelers will also be without some starters. Both James Conner and Stephon Tuitt have not been cleared to play. It’s a significant blow for the Steelers, but nothing compared to what the Ravens are going through. The Steelers will still have their starting quarterback, their top wide receivers, and their tight end. Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers’ offense can survive with Benny Snell taking snaps at running back.
Final score prediction for the NFL game tonight
The skeleton crew that each team will be trotting out has certainly put an unusual twist on an AFC North showdown that’s usually marked with physicality.
It’s hard to see a world where the Steelers don’t route the Ravens. It’s an unfortunate circumstance for one of the most heated rivalries in the NFL, but 2020 is making everything more difficult on everyone. Hey, maybe, just maybe, RG3 has some of that 2012 magic left in him. That’s probably the Ravens’ only hope aside from a turnover spree by the Steelers’ offense.
Kyle’s prediction: Steelers win 31-13
Week 13 NFL Power Rankings & Week 12 NFL Recap
Before jumping into our coverage of Week 12’s NFL football game tonight, make sure to check out some of our other NFL articles. Pro Football Network’s Senior NFL Analyst Matt Williamson (former NFL Scout and ESPN Analyst) released his NFL Power Rankings Week 12 following Sunday’s action. This week, Williamson has the Ravens outside of the top 10 due to a lackluster passing game and regression from Lamar Jackson. Meanwhile, the Steelers sit second in the NFL, despite being the only undefeated team left, due to Ben Roethlisberger’s inconsistent play at times.
