Thursday Night Football Week 4:
Ravens (0-3) @ Steelers (2-1): The Steelers are clearly the better team with a healthy Big Ben, and at home are even better the issue being, they are not with Big Ben for a little while now and will have to rely on Michael Vick. The Ravens are a team struggling to find themselves their defense is week in week out without LaDarius Webb and will be without Terrell Suggs the rest of the season. This team needs to find themselves help really fast but they are having a hard time doing so. I really don’t know who to pick in this game because I think the Steelers are the better team. The only issue is the Ravens realize in only week four this game could be win or go home almost at this point because if they go 0-4 I don’t see them making the playoffs. The Ravens should be playing with more determination and will be playing a QB in Vick that I do not believe is good enough to beat very many teams in the NFL. I believe the Ravens win 17 – 13 over the Steelers.
Matt Koontz (30-18)
As a Cincinnati Bengals fan and a dog lover, there are two things I hate more than Lewis Billups and dropped interceptions in the NFL world. Those two things are the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michael "Kibbles 'N" Vick. This week, Vick is starting for the Steelers, and (for the first and last time ever), I hope the Ravens are dominant. Without Big Ben at QB, they have a chance to win this game. They're 0-3, and just lost a close game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Baltimore has some talent, but Pittsburgh is one of the best teams in the NFL....when Roethlisberger is healthy. Michael Vick is on the downside of his career, and while he might fill in capably for Big Ben, he's not going to do enough to hold off a Baltimore Ravens team in full-fledged desperation mode. Baltimore's season is essentially over, and is almost definitely over if they lose this game. They don't. Final score: Ravens 21, Steelers 18.
--Mike B (31-17)
Ravens @ Steelers - This game is a tough one to call with the absence of Roethelisberger. But, the Steelers are playing at home, and the Ravens are struggling. Pittsburgh wins, 27-24.

Pittsburg 24 Baltimore 21. I believe that Michael Vick has a chip on his shoulder and will come out firing. Pittsburg changes its game plan to suite Vick and it pays off. Bell finally gets it moving vs a battered Ravens defense. Steve Smith Sr. continues to be a force but it's just not enough. Flacco turns the ball over 3 times in a late game loss.
- Jared McManus (27-21)
Ravens @ Steelers: I think Mike Vick has a big game and really shows what he can do this week. Now i might think Vick has a big game but i believe desperation Ravens are going to be too much for the Steelers. Ravens 31 - Steelers 26. Mike Vick has 315 yards and 4 TDS, Flacco puts up only 250 but has 4 TD's
