Somehow, not only are the Pittsburgh Steelers still in the thick of the AFC playoff picture after losing three straight games to start the month of December, they also cannot be eliminated, even with a Week 18 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Steelers will obviously want to win, as four of their five playoff scenarios involve a victory over the Ravens, but even if the Steelers lose, they will have to watch the rest of the Week 18 game to see what happens.

The Ravens have already clinched the No. 1 seed and have nothing to play for.


The Steelers have five ways to clinch a playoff berth this weekend:

1 Win and Buffalo loss

2 Win and Jacksonville los

3 Win and Houston-Indianapolis tie

4 Tie, Jacksonville loss and Houston-Indianapolis don’t tie

5 Jacksonville loss, Denver win, Houston-Indianapolis don’t tie.


The Steelers can finish as either the No. 6 or No. 7 seed, and if they make the playoffs, they can only play the Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs or Miami Dolphins.

1. Baltimore Ravens 13-3
2. Miami Dolphins 11-5
3. Kansas City Chiefs 10-6
4. Jacksonville Jaguars 9-7
5. Cleveland Browns 11-5
6. Buffalo Bills 10-6
7. Indianapolis Colts 9-7
8. Houston Texans 9-7
9. Pittsburgh Steelers 9-7
10. Denver Broncos 8-8
11. Cincinnati Bengals 8-8
12. Las Vegas Raiders 7-9
13. New York Jets 6-10
14. Tennessee Titans 5-11
15. Los Angeles Chargers 5-11
16. New England Patriots 4-12


The AFC North standings have been finalized, with the Steelers finishing in third place, and nothing that happens this weekend can change that.

Overall AFC North AFC Head-to-head
Ravens 13-3 3-2 7-3 CIN 2-0, CLE 1-1, PIT 0-1
Browns 11-5 3-2 7-3 BAL 1-1, CIN 1-0, PIT 1-1
Steelers 8-7 4-1 6-5 BAL 1-0, CLE 1-1, CIN 2-0
Bengals 8-7 0-5 3-7 CLE 0-1, BAL 0-2, PIT 0-2


Three Steelers are questionable to play in this one: free safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, inside linebacker Elandon Roberts and strong safety Trenton Thompson.

Myles Jack and Eric Rowe have been elevated from the practice squad for the third consecutive week.


The Ravens will be without Lamar Jackson for sure, as they are resting their MVP candidate quarterback. Tyler Huntley is expected to start.

Also ruled out are WR Odell Beckham Jr., guard Kevin Zeitler, linebacker Malik Harrison, cornerback Daryl Worley and cornerback Marlon Humphrey. Wide receiver Zay Flowers is doubtful.


Kenny Pickett hit George Pickens on a late 41-yard touchdown to break open a deadlocked contest and lead the Steelers over the Ravens, 17-10 in Pittsburgh on Oct. 8. Joey Porter Jr. had the key defensive play, intercepting Jackson in the end zone.

Miles Killebrew blocked a punt for a safety, Larry Ogunjobi and Alex Highsmith both forced fumble and the Steelers stifled Jackson and company all afternoon.


Since the Cleveland Browns moved to Baltimore to become the Ravens, the Steelers are 34-25 against their purple-and black-clad divisional foes. The Steelers have won six of the last seven games, dating back to 2020. The Steelers are 14-13 all-time in Baltimore.


Former Steelers quarterback Tee Martin is the Ravens’ quarterbacks coach.

Cornerback Arthur Maulet joined the Ravens after contentiously leaving the Steelers this spring.
