Najee Harris, Pittsburgh Steelers Offensive Line Ready to Run vs. Highly Ranked Ravens' Run Defense?
Manage episode 349191606 series 1692711
Chris Carter of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, hosts the Locked on Steelers podcast, and is joined by Kevin Oestreicher of Locked on Ravens for Crossover Thursday.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have seen significant improvement in their rushing offense with Najee Harris and the offensive line. But how will that improvement hold up against the No. 2 rushing defense in the NFL of the Baltimore Ravens? It's a strength-on-strength matchup between two AFC North opponents that will play a major role in both teams' hopes for the rest of the season.
Also, with Lamar Jackson most likely out, what do the Steelers have to watch out for in backup quarterback Tyler Huntley? They beat him last year, but barely. Can T.J. Watt, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Cam Heyward and Alex Highsmith overwhelm Huntley?
Finally, Kenny Pickett's passing has gotten better. The Ravens' pass defense has a revitalized Marlon Humphrey and a rookie star in Kyle Hamilton, but they've given up a lot of big passing plays this season. Is this the game Pickett explodes for a big day with George Pickens and/or Diontae Johnson?
