🏈 Pro Football Talk: When Baltimore plays at Pittsburgh on Sunday, it will be the 34th time Mike Tomlin and John Harbaugh have coached against each other. That’s the second-most meetings for any pair of coaches in NFL history.

Only George Halas and Curly Lambeau, who coached against each other in 49 games between 1921 and 1953, faced off more times of any pair of coaches in NFL history. Halas coached the Bears for 40 seasons. Lambeau coached the Packers for 29 seasons, the Chicago Cardinals for two seasons and Washington for two seasons.

Through 33 games, Tomlin is 18-15 against Harbaugh.

🏈 Colin Cowherd of FS1 thinks the Steelers will cover the 4.5-point spread but the Ravens will win 24-23.

🏈 Mike Sando of The Athletic thinks it’s too early to write off Mike Tomlin and the Steelers.

“We’ve seen Mike Tomlin’s teams improve and battle their way to respectability. This team is 2-2, not 0-4, but you’d never know it from the conversation surrounding this team,” Sando wrote. “I thought the Steelers would be better. I do think they need an offensive reset, but I’m not quite ready to write off this team despite all the evidence suggesting the ship is sinking fast.”

🏈 According to Ryan Wallen of OwlsDaily247, scouts from the Steelers were at the Temple-UTSA game on Saturday.

🏈 The Ravens rank first in the league in red zone offense. They’ve scored 12 red zone touchdowns on 15 drives (80.0%)

🏈 Several Steelers players got some new jewelry while they were down in Houston last week.

🎥 Steel City Star posted a throwback clip to when Ike Taylor laid out Ed Reed in 2003. On the play, punter Josh Miller threw a 81-yard touchdown pass to Chris Hope on a fake punt.
