Steele’s defenders will try to put pressure on Jackson and confuse Jackson with their screens.
Kurt Warner of NFL Network: “The best way to deal with Rama Jackson is to interact with him quickly, so pressure is often the best way to interact with someone quickly. If you come up with a way to protect them from overload, you will get a free agent , Forcing people to delay the progress. The second part is that you apply pressure to make the back end look different. So even if he sees your pressure and he knows a person is coming, does he know exactly what he sees behind Last year, when he participated in the game he started, it made him a little confused. This is Pittsburgh’s outstanding performance.”
The Ravens need the outstanding performance of center Matt Skura.
Aaron Kasinitz of Penn Live: “Each frontline defender in the Ravens offense will face a severe challenge to a strong Steelers defense. The latter has accumulated the most sacks in the NFL and has the least total yards in six games….Skoura Being at the center position is especially important. Just like the Ravens, the Steelers also deployed creative blitz at a high speed… In order to counter the talent and aggressiveness of the Steelers, Skula must help Jackson direct traffic and play protection Phone, and he may need to sprint through a tie on the star track.”
The new crow Yannick Ngakoue will be a factor.
John Breech of CBS Sports: “If Jackson is going to run for his life, then it makes sense for Ben Rosliberg to do the same thing. No one can do Big Ben better than Ngakwe. In three professional games, Ngakou has two sacks, a forced defeat (passing back touchdowns) and 5 QB hits. In fact, I believe that the only reason John Harbaugh traded Ngakoue is that he can participate in this game. It’s just a bonus.”
The Ravens TE Mark Andrews vs. Steelers ILB Robert Spillane is a key match.
Matt Wise from Russell Street: “When he was with the Steelers in 2019, Spillan only played in special teams. As a replacement for the injured Devin Bush in 2020, Spillan began his defensive career. [last week]. Spillane has always worked hard and performed well against the Titans [laying a big hit on Derrick Henry at the goal line], But his pass coverage has not yet been fully confirmed. The offensive coordinator spends a lot of time studying how to build a favorable matchup for his best weapon. If the Ravens can isolate Andrews from the world on Spillane, then they may have a very favorable matchup against the very difficult Steelers defense. “
