Fans can watch the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens game live online and see whether the Ravens can put aside distractions and take on their rival with the AFC North lead on the line.
This week new video emerged of running back Ray Rice’s domestic violence incident. The video showed Rice battering then fiancee Janay Palmer in an Atlantic City elevator, contradicting Rice’s account of the incident and leading to his release from the Ravens and an indefinite suspension from the NFL.
The video has caused quite a bit of heat for the NFL and the Ravens, who are both seen as lenient on the star.
But the Ravens must now find a way to put the incident behind them and focus on the running game, which managed just 23 yards on nine carries in the first half of a 23-16 loss.
“The game is done. It’s shaken off. On to next week,” said Bernard Pierce, who started at running back but left after fumbling in the second quarter and did not return.
The Ravens will get the chance to put it behind them when they host the Pittsburgh on Thursday at 8:25 p.m.
It was a difficult week for the Ravens offense overall, as the team lost 110 yards through the air due to drops.
“We dropped all the gimmies, but we caught all the hard ones,” receiver Steve Smith said. “Things can happen and you’ve got to take responsibility. This receiver group has a lot of opportunities to be great, and I think we overthought things and ran before we had the ball. We’ve just got to play better.”
Those who watch the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens live online will also see a Pittsburgh squad looking to bounce back from a shaky performance. The Steelers started out strong against the Cleveland Browns but saw a 24-point lead evaporate as the Browns scored on four straight possessions in the second half. The Steelers went on to win 30-27, however.
“People probably didn’t like the way we came out with a `W,’ but we came out with a `W,'” cornerback Ike Taylor said. “So nobody has really nothing to talk about except for the small things, and we’ll correct them.”
