If Ben can’t play Sunday against the Ravens, can Byron Leftwich get the job done? A Steelers victory would tie the team at the top of the AFC North with the Ravens who are at 7-2. This is the biggest game of the season for the Steelers who play the Ravens twice in the next few weeks. Nothing gives the team a better chance to win than Ben Roethlisberger does. For Leftwich, this has to be on of the biggest games of his career.
Leftwich just doesn’t have the quick release that Ben has. It is going to take a total team effort for the Steelers to pull off a victory over the Ravens. Baltimore has found a new source of energy after they were badly beaten by the Texans. For the Steelers game you can bet they will be up. If the Steelers can’t give Leftwich the protection he is going to need, it could be a rough road against Baltimore. Losing Ben before this Baltimore game is a tough blow. We will see what the Steelers are made of this week….
