Why the Ravens can cover

Quarterback Lamar Jackson (knee) wants to miss Sunday’s showdown, so Baltimore wants to turn to backup Tyler Huntley. Huntley has done an admirable job filling in for Jackson, completing 61 of 91 passes (67%) for 528 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He also carried 36 times for 113 yards (3.1 average) and one touchdown. He has converted 10 first downs. He was 9 of 17 passing (52.9%) for 115 yards and one touchdown in last week’s 17-9 win over Atlanta.

Running back JK Dobbins has played well since coming back from injury. In the first meeting against the Steelers, he carried 15 times for 120 yards (8.0 average) and one touchdown. He followed that up with 13 carries for 125 yards (9.6 average) in a 13-3 loss at Cleveland on Dec. 17. Dobbins has rushed for 427 yards on 75 attempts (5.7 average) and two touchdowns in seven games in 2022.

Why the Steelers can cover

Rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett returned from a concussion to help lead Pittsburgh past Las Vegas last Saturday. In that game, he completed 26 of 39 passes (66.7%) for 244 yards, one touchdown and one interception. For the season, he has completed 217 of 333 passes (65.2%) for 2,041 yards and five touchdowns with nine interceptions. He has thrown just one pick, however, since Oct. 30. He also carried 47 times for 234 yards (5.0 average) and three TDs.

Also helping power the Steelers offense is running back Najee Harris. In 15 games this season, he has carried 227 times for 843 yards (3.7 average) and six touchdowns. He has a big play of 36 yards, and has 36 first-down conversions. Harris has also been a force in the passing game with 38 receptions for 207 yards (5.4 average) and two touchdowns. In the win over Las Vegas, Harris carried 16 times for 53 yards (3.3 average) and caught six passes for 42 yards (7.0 average).
