The Baltimore Ravens are at risk of having the 2015 season run away from them.
Fortunately for them, they face a Thursday night game against a Pittsburgh Steelers‘ team without Ben Roethlisberger.
Roethlisberger is injured, which will leave the quarterback duties to 35-year-old Michael Vick. That should be enough to cause some headaches for the 0-3 Ravens. The Ravens are good enough, however, to have held a second-half lead in all three of their defeats.
So far this year, the Ravens have fallen to teams that are a combined 8-1 on the season.
Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco has thrown for 746 yards and four touchdowns over the last two weeks, and he faces a Pittsburgh secondary that is considered the soft spot of their defense.
The Ravens, however, have averaged only 72 yards per game on the ground.
The Ravens’ own run defense, however, has been solid.
