NFL Power Rankings Week 14 2022, Pittsburgh Steelers VS Baltimore Ravens
Pittsburgh Steelers Form
The Pittsburgh Steelers improved their regular season record to 5-7 last week by beating the Atlanta Falcons 16-19. They’ve gone 4-6 in their past ten matches and 2-3 in the last seven at home.
The home offense seems to have found another level in performance of late. While the Pittsburgh Steelers’ season average stands at 17.8 points, the offensive unit has put 21.2 points on board in the last five matches alone.
On the other side of the ball, the defense has been relatively average in the league recently. The hosts have given up 23.0 points in the previous five outings, which is more or less on par with the 23.1 points they’ve allowed per game over the course of the regular season.
Having reached the wild card round of the playoffs last January, the Pittsburgh Steelers hoped for at least a repeat this year. However, unless the home side can overturn a 5-7 record before 2022 wraps up, a spot in the NFL postseason seems unlikely at this stage.
Baltimore Ravens Form
The Baltimore Ravens went 8-4 for the season last week by defeating the Denver Broncos 10-9. In their past ten matches, they’ve gone 7-3 and are also 3-2 in their last seven on the road.
The Baltimore Ravens will bring a middle-of-the-park offense for their latest game on the road, having scored 23.8 points per game this season. On the defensive side of the ball, there has been no letup whatsoever.
The visitors boast one of the stingiest defenses in the entire country, allowing just 19.7 points per game for this season, and have remained formidable in the past five games, having only given up 15.0 points on average.
The Baltimore Ravens began the year backed as a threat for the AFC Championship. While it’s still early days, the vistors remain on course to reach this target. They hold the third seed in the AFC Conference and will seek to both maintain and improve their seeding as the regular season winds down.
