The announcers for the Steelers’ Week 5 game against the Baltimore Ravens have been revealed. CBS announced that the crew of Ian Eagle, Charles Davis, and Evan Washburn will call the game that is slated to be the lead of the 1 p.m. slate for the channel. Channel 2 KDKA-TV will have the local coverage of the game on Sunday.
This crew is no stranger to calling Steelers and Ravens games and has done so multiple times. Pittsburgh is looking to bounce back after a challenging game against the Houston Texans that resulted in their second lopsided loss of the season. Meanwhile, the Ravens surged into the AFC North division lead with Lamar Jackson playing like a superstar after walloping the Deshaun Watson-less Browns.
Pittsburgh has plenty to think about before the game, with Matt Canada under fire and a defense that came out flat against the Texans’ undermanned offensive line. Head coach Mike Tomlin declared that there would be changes coming down the pipeline after the game.
“Hell yeah, we’ve got to make some changes, man,” Tomlin said following the loss. “That was an ugly product we put out there today. We’re not going to do the same things and hope for a different outcome. What those changes are, we’ll put together a plan in preparation this week.”
Tomlin was not pushed further on what those changes would be. It could end up being personnel-based. But the likely outcome is that the changes will be schematic based on how the Steelers decide to play their offensive and defensive personnel.
