BALTIMORE – The NFL will see another chapter written in the book of one of its fiercest rivalries this Sunday as the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Baltimore Ravens.
This is easily the most high-profile matchup between these teams in recent years, with the undefeated Steelers coming into the face the 5-1 Ravens.
Two very different teams with different goals and philosophies will meet in a battle for control of the AFC North. Current online sportsbook odds have the Ravens as slight favorites to hand the Steelers their first L of the season.
NFL Week 8 – Sunday 1:00 p.m. EST:
- Pittsburgh Steelers +165
- Baltimore Ravens -190
- Spread: BAL -4.0
- O/U: 46.5
Fans of these two storied franchises throughout the years are greeted by an unusual pairing with the 2020 versions of these teams.
Gone are the days of Ray Lewis and Troy Polamalu dominating the opponent from the defensive side of the ball. Now, both these teams sport two of the most dynamic offensive attacks in the league.
For the Steelers, many pundits didn’t take them seriously at the beginning of this season and even still after the first two weeks. But following a blowout win over the Cleveland Browns and a pivotal victory against the formerly-undefeated Tennessee Titans, no one is doubting the Steelers anymore.

For the Ravens, everyone knew who they were coming into 2020: MVP-winner in Lamar Jackson at quarterback and a stingy defense that received some upgrades like Calais Campbell. While the Ravens do hold only one loss on the season, they haven’t looked as explosive as they would have liked overall. That can all change with a key win over the Steelers this weekend.
