Stats To Watch Out For: Steelers vs. Ravens
The Pittsburgh Steelers travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens this Sunday. Several Steelers are close to breaking franchise marks or moving up leaderboards on both the team and in the league.
Here are some of the statistics you should keep an eye on in this game.
Ben Roethlisberger will become the 11th quarterback in NFL history to throw for at least 300 yards in 50 regular-season games and the ninth to do so with one team with 300 yards or more on Sunday.
Antonio Brown needs one touchdown catch to pass Lynn Swann (51) for the third-most receiving touchdowns in team history. AB is currently tied with Swann with 51 career touchdown catches.
Antonio Brown surpassed John Stallworth (8,723) for the second-most receiving yards (8,731) in team history. Hines Ward holds the current franchise record with 12,083 yards.
Le’Veon Bell’s next 100-yard rushing game will mark the 15th of his NFL career and will tie John Henry Johnson for the fifth-most 100-yard games in Steelers history.
Bell needs three rushing scores to match Rashard Mendenhall (29) for fifth-most in franchise history
Bell is also 121 scrimmage yards from moving into seventh in team history (Louis Lipps: 6,406).
Le’Veon is 157 rushing yards from surpassing John Henry Johnson (4,381) for the fourth-most in Steelers history.
A half-sack would give James Harrison 80 in his career with the Steelers which only increases his lead for most sacks in team history. Jason Gildon is second on the list with 77. However, with only four snaps last week, there may not be enough opportunities for Deebo to achieve this.
William Gay will break a tie with Rod Woodson to set the record for the most interceptions returned for touchdowns in team history with his next pick six of six.
The Steelers look to improve to 23-20 all-time against the Ravens in regular-season history and to 10-12 in road games at Baltimore.
Ben Roethlisberger looks to improve to 10-11 in his regular-season Steelers’ tenure against Baltimore and to 4-7 on the road.
