Pittsburgh (8-7-1) is coming off an emotional Monday Night Football victory over the Browns, a contest that was recognized as the final home game at Heinz Field for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. To sneak into the playoffs, the Steelers need a win along with a Colts loss and the hope that the Raiders-Chargers matchup doesn’t end in a tie.
Baltimore (8-8) has collapsed down the stretch and that can be attributed to the slew of injuries they’ve suffered on both sides of the ball. The most notable of those is an ankle injury that has kept quarterback Lamar Jackson out of action. Baltimore can still sneak into the playoffs but would need a win along with losses by the Chargers, Colts, and Dolphins (or a Dolphins tie).
