The lone touchdown scored in that 13-10 victory was on a 63-yard punt return by Jacoby Jones.

Pittsburgh was able to score one with backup quarterback Byron Leftwich.

Given the Steelers have the NFL’s No. 1 defense, that the Ravens had struggles was to be expected.

But other than a first half in Week 2 at the Philadelphia Eagles when they scored 17 points and a first half at the Cleveland Browns when they scored 14 in Week 9, the Ravens have totaled just 52 points in the other 16 quarters on the road.

The Ravens were just 4-4 on the road last season, losing 34-14 at the Chargers as quarterback Joe Flacco was sacked seven times.

"It’s a different year, a different week," Flacco said. "We have to go in there and play our game. This is a talented football team, and we know that. They’re going to be ready to play. They play well at home."

The Chargers, mostly known as an offensive juggernaut, are actually known for their defense this season. They're ranked eighth in the NFL.

The yards won't be easy to come by for the Ravens whether or not they run the hurry-up offense. They abandoned it in Pittsburgh, but that did little to help.

"You look at the veteran leadership they have on their defense, it really sticks out to me," said running back Ray Rice, who had 57 yards rushing and 55 yards receving in the Chargers game last season. "And the younger guys they have in there, it sort of reminds me of ourselves. When you look at a guy in the middle like Takeo Spikes, who has been doing it for 15 years, he's the ultimate pro (and) he's got a young linebacker next to him that sort of reminds me of our situation here with Ray Lewis and a Jameel McClain and Dannell Ellerbe.  So they're tough up front. They get after it."

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season


Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
