The Steelers have no intensity

Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell was back in practice on Thursday. Pittsburgh's injury struggles are lingering as the team nears its Sunday 1 p.m. matchup with the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens and Steelers kick off at noon CDT Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

The Steelers get a big win on the road in Baltimore for the first time in five seasons and take sole possession of first place in the AFC North at 3-1. As for Pittsburgh, their offence hasn't quite yet fired, particularly running back Le'Veon Bell, who has been held to only 3.5 yards a carry and is yet to have a 100-yard game this season. Bell rushed for 144 yards on 35 carries (4.1 average) and scored two touchdowns.

The Steelers got the ball first to open the third quarter and in a unusual play, Brown grabbed a pass and went to the ground - the ball popping out as he rolled over into the air. Either way, in the pass-happy era of pro football, and with Joe Flacco among the highest-paid quarterbacks in the sport, they should find more yards through the air.

"I wasn't good enough to get us back in the game", Flacco said. Furthermore, a missed field goal by Steelers kicker Chris Boswell led to good field position and a touchdown reception by former Steeler and current Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace which shrunk the lead to 10 points.

CMS says football players can protest peacefully
Never has anyone said they don't respect or honor the flag or those who gave their lives for freedom. However, "I want everyone to know that I've asked the players ... not (told)".

As early as it might be in the National Football League schedule, several division games could be considered relatively critical in Week 4.

West is fine, but I think based on this game and games in the past, Collins is more explosive and more powerful than West, and there's still time for him to develop more, as he's just 23-years-old. "I realized right then this rivalry was something serious. Give us the best play possible, not just the best guy possible". They fail at third downs on both sides of the ball, they can't run, tackle, or catch the ball. Roethlisberger pointed to an overthrow of Martavis Bryant in the end zone for what would have been a deep dagger of a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter as an example. Flacco was under constant duress and the Steelers stayed consistently with a three- or four-man rush except occasionally bringing pressure off the corner. Last week, Flacco had the worst game of his career in a 44-7 loss to the Jaguars. The Ravens said over the public address system they were having a silent prayer for "unity, kindness and justice for all Americans". He repeated what he said earlier in the week, that he and his teammates had tried to do the best they could, but they could not always get everything right. Antonio Brown accounted for nearly half of Pittsburgh's aerial offense in the loss, hauling in 10 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown. "We were glad to get them". Predictably, the Ravens came out on the opening offensive drive and handed the ball off to Chris Collins but the Steelers sniffed out the run on the very next play as Ryan Shazier stuffed it for a loss. "The leash isn't going to be long on that".

"[It] starts with me", Flacco said.
