Damn I love these AFC North slugfests. No matter how bad these teams are, they always show up for these intense rivalry games. Both squads are coming off embarrassing losses, with the Ravens getting annihilated by the Jaguars in the London Sunday morning snoozer and the Steelers going down to da Bears in OT. These games are always way too close to call. The only thing for sure is no one will be taking this one lightly as they battle it out for the AFC North lead.

Honestly, this one is a coin flip and I'm tempted to just ride with the home team. But I think the Ravens have been over-performing and the Steelers have been under-performing. HC Mike Tomlin has got to be furious and I've got to believe Le'Veon is due for a huge game. Roethliberger puts up 300+ and Bell and Brown combine for another 300. It'll be a sweat but I like the Pittsburgh Steelers ML.

The Week 4 Game of the Week in the NFL features the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road at the Baltimore Ravens. This is a battle of AFC North rivals, and the first of two meetings between these teams. Both teams come into the game fresh off a loss. The Ravens lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and are 2-1 on the season. Pittsburgh is also 2-1 with a road loss in Chicago.

This could be an ugly football game, as it is often times when these two meet up. Now, we have two irritated teams both coming off terrible Week 3 performances. The Pittsburgh Steelers have the better talent, but the "playing on the road" narrative appears to be real. In a competitive, low scoring game, the better team finds a way to win this game. The total is set at 42, and the way these two teams played offensively last week, that's too high. The under seems to be the best bet for this game. I'm taking the Pittsburgh Steelers -3 along with the Under 42 in this week 3 rivalry game.
