Ravens CB Jimmy Smith Week 9 vs. Steelers is'biggest game of our season

The Pittsburgh Steelers delivered a gut-punch to the playoff hopes of the Baltimore Ravens, prompting questions about the future of coach John Harbaugh. "We've played three really good football teams the last three games".

Cornerback Mike Hilton, whom Haden called one of the Steelers' best players, said no matter who is called upon, limiting Brown is a must for Pittsburgh.

The Raven had to settle for their third field goal of the game on the ensuing drive and ran out of time to put together an effective drive after the Steelers converted a couple of more key third downs late in the game to seal the win. We've had some big games there in my past 12 years here.

Joe Haden knows about losing to the Baltimore Ravens. "We've got roadblocks, which are great defenses on other teams, trying to stop us, but we've always said - and no disrespect to other teams - they don't stop us, we stop ourselves". Speaking of touchdowns, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger accounted for three scores including a rushing touchdown. Probably not. We're probably a step off just because it's Week 9. That's an average of five catches and 53 yards per game for the four-time All-Pro. "It's an exciting place to play".

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is wearing custom cleats emblazoned with a Star of David, adorned with the phrase "Stronger Than Hate", in response to recent shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh's Squirrel Hill neighborhood.

Roethlisberger owns a career completion percentage of 64 percent, but he's completed just 57 percent of his passes in Baltimore. He's thrown nine touchdowns to 13 interceptions at M&T Bank Stadium, and has been sacked 29 times in 10 games, including eight in the last four contests. All week, this game has been highlighted by everyone associated with Baltimore. Roethlisberger enters Sunday's game against the Ravens with a broken index finger on his non-throwing hand.

He ranked fifth at the position with 25.8 FanDuel points on Sunday.

"Things happen. We have to find a way to get it right", Brown said. "He's one of the toughest ever to do it". "Every man in here believes in him", said Brown of Dobbs. "I'm looking forward to the opportunity to go out and compete this weekend". Lauten relayed a notice from CBS Sports that several of Pittsburgh's upcoming games on their network would be protected against prime time flexing, including their game against the Saints in the regular season's final weeks. Sensabaugh fully practiced on Friday, while Burns left practice early with his ankle injury.
