The line for this game is Baltimore by 2.5 points.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have dropped two in a row but could get a huge lift coming off their bye week when they visit the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in a renewal of a bitter AFC North rivalry. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who has knee surgery on Oct. 17, practiced on a limited basis and could return to the lineup.

Landry Jones struggled in a 27-16 loss to the Patriots, finishing 29 of 47 for 281 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Roethlisberger threw for at least three scoring passes in four of his first five starts and had nine TDs and zero picks in back-to-back wins over Kansas City and the New York Jets before he was hurt in a loss at Miami. Whoever starts at quarterback has the luxury of throwing to elite wideout Antonio Brown, who has 48 catches for 592 yards and five scores. Running back Le’Veon Bell has been outstanding since returning from his three-game suspension, leading the league with 147.2 yards from scrimmage per game.

Quarterback Joe Flacco has struggled during the four-game skid with two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions, and has only five scoring passes versus six picks on the season. Wideout Steve Smith returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday for the first time since injuring his ankle on Oct. 9. Baltimore managed 11 yards rushing in a Week 7 loss at the Jets.

In the last 16 regular-season meetings between the teams, 13 have been decided by four points or fewer.

Ravens WR Mike Wallace, a former Steeler, had a season-high 10 receptions for 120 yards prior to the bye.

Brown has 39 receptions and a TD in the last five matchups against Baltimore (playoffs included).
