NFL Odds: AFC North Division Rivalry this Sunday. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens will meet for the second time this season on Sunday when the AFC North rivals look to push for top spot in the division. Pittsburgh has pulled themselves out of an early-season hole with victories in their last three games, while Baltimore is in a tailspin after losing their last two. Can the Ravens turn things around or will Pittsburgh further solidify their first-place position?
The Pittsburgh Steelers will look to extend their winning streak to four games this Sunday (1:00 PM ET) in a divisional game against the Baltimore Ravens. Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers will be tasked with trying to solve the league’s stingiest defense, so this matchup will be a benchmark game for both teams.

Just four weeks ago, the Ravens handed the Steelers their second loss of the season and improved their own record to 3-1. However, the Ravens (4-4) enter this Sunday’s rematch on a two-game skid and at risk of falling further out of the race for the division.
Pittsburgh (4-2-1), meanwhile, has found another gear in the last three weeks, winning all games and outscoring opponents to a tune of 102-56. That success has come on the arm of veteran QB Ben Roethlisberger. Big Ben has thrown six TDs and just two interceptions over that span and has stabilized the Steelers’ offense. Baltimore’s top-ranked defense will prove difficult to gain big yards against, so it’ll be up to Roethlisberger to manage the game and avoid turnovers. Kick-off is scheduled for 1:00 PM ET.
