The Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Baltimore Ravens for their first of two showdowns the season in Week 5 in a battle for the lead in the AFC North — a title the Ravens currently hold with a 3-1 start to the season. Despite the recent ups and downs, Pittsburgh has a 5-1 series lead over the Ravens in the past three seasons.
These teams enter the week in very different circumstances, as the Ravens, who have battled a slew of injuries to key starters, are finally getting healthy while the Steelers’ injury woes are starting to pile up, missing a number of key starters including DT Cam Heyward and WR Diontae Johnson, both out in injured reserve and eligible to return after their Week 6 bye.
Interestingly, this marks the first time Lamar Jackson will face the Steelers in just under two years, having missed the Ravens’ last three games against Pittsburgh over the past two seasons. Jackson’s lone career win over the Steelers came back in 2019, a messy 3-point victory in Pittsburgh where he threw for 161 passing yards, 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions. On the other side of the ball, Week 5 will mark Kenny Pickett’s second career start against the Ravens — the first of which was a win in Baltimore as a rookie.
