They’ll need to take their momentum to Baltimore on a short week and play the Ravens in an extremely hostile environment Thanksgiving night.The team knows this will be a huge test as the Super Bowl champs are just as hungry as the Steelers are to get to .500. The winner will be in great shape, the loser will be in big trouble. In traditional Steelers vs. Ravens fashion it will be a hard hitting, venomous, tight game that will probably come down to whoever has the ball last.Here are the Keys to A Steelers Victory:1. Pittsburgh needs to continue to run the no huddle. It’s been their most effective form of offense and has enabled Big Ben to avoid sacks and make more plays downfield.2. The o line must keep an eye on Terrell Suggs at all times. They did a pretty decent job of stopping him in the first matchup in Pittsburgh however he was still able to get to Big Ben a few times. The O line must not allow Suggs in the backfield or he’ll cause mayhem all game long.3. Stopping Torrey Smith is a must. Smith is a burner and a huge deep threat. Ike Taylor will most likely be matched up with him all game long. Taylor hasn’t fared well the past few weeks, he’ll need to make sure Smith doesn’t get behind him and keep the Raven’s deep threat to short gains only.4. The defense must continue to play effective football. The past few weeks they have gained 8 turnovers and have really turned up the pressure on the opposing quarterbacks. Led by Jason Worilds, they’ll need to continue to find themselves in the offensive backfield, forcing bad throws, gaining sacks and punching the ball loose. The Ravens are a ball control offense and having a defense cause that kind of ruckus would be a huge step towards gaining a win.last_img read more
