The Ravens dropped behind Cleveland into third place in the division Sunday as they blew a 10-point lead and fell 30-24 to Tennessee, while the Browns beat Philadelphia. Baltimore trails the Steelers by four games with six to play.
In the teams’ first meeting in Week 8, Pittsburgh pulled out a 28-24 win with Roethlisberger’s fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Chase Claypool in Baltimore.
Dobbins rushed for a season-best 113 yards. Jackson passed for 208 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
The Ravens are down to Gus Edwards (376 yards, three touchdowns, 4.4 yards a carry this year) and Justice Hill as their running backs as of Friday. Hill has played primarily on special teams and has no carries this year.
“You look at Gus and Justice, those two guys are incredible athletes, incredible players, and they’re going to do their job just fine and hold that torch and do their thing,” Andrews said. “There’s no worries there.”
Coach Jim Harbaugh also downplayed the absences.
“The run game is a group effort,” he said. “I’m sure we’ll run the ball (against Pittsburgh).”
Not if the Steelers can help it.
“It’s not like we are laying off the gas pedal by any stretch,” Pittsburgh linebacker T.J. Watt said.
While Baltimore had players being added to the reserve/COVID-19 list, Pittsburgh activated tight end Vance McDonald from that list.
Provided the game is played Tuesday, the NFL will move the Ravens next game — set for next Thursday against the Dallas Cowboys — to the following Sunday (Dec. 6), the league said.
