Lamar Jackson reportedly suffered a sprained posterior cruciate ligament, which means he could be out between one and three weeks. For now, the Ravens will move forward with Tyler Huntley. Last year as the starter, Huntley went 1-3, completing 64.9 percent of his passes for 1,081 yards, with three touchdowns and four interceptions. He also ran for 294 yards with another two scores. The good news is that Huntley is another dual-threat quarterback, so it’s not like John Harbaugh has to turn water into wine. The bad news is…well… he’s not Lamar Jackson. The Steelers have won three of their last four behind the return of TJ Watt and significantly better play from Kenny Pickett and their offensive line. Just how much better has the offensive line played? In the four games since the bye week, the Steelers have rushed for 645 yards. That’s a whopping 161.25 yards per game and a drastic difference for a team that was worse at establishing the run than Stephen Hawking’s doctors up until that point. When the Steelers can run the football, their rookie quarterback doesn’t have to carry the weight of the world on his shoulders, which is why Kenny Pickett hasn’t had an interception in four weeks after being the most turnover-prone quarterback in the NFL. And part of the reason Pittsburgh is running for so many yards is that Pickett himself is taking off with the football more, accounting for 17.2% of Pittsburgh’s ground yardage during this hot streak.
That all sounds peachy for the Steelers, but the teams they’ve been able to run the football against recently are the worst rushing defenses in the NFL. Baltimore has an elite run defense. The Ravens are better at stopping the runs than Pepto Bismol, with opponents averaging just 82.5 rushing yards a game- good for second in the NFL. The Ravens have only allowed one opponent to rush for over 100 yards in a game since October 10th, and against a Pittsburgh team that struggled to run the ball for most of the year, expect that streak to continue. When the Steelers played the Ravens last year, Tyler Huntley was 16-of-31 for 141 yards and two touchdowns while running 12 times for 72 yards in a 16-13 Steelers win that helped put them in the playoffs. But that was against a Steelers defense that was capable of defending the pass (something they have not done well this year), and statistically, it was far and away the worst game Huntley started last season. Last year, in the five games in which Huntley played over 80 percent of his team’s offensive snaps, he averaged 56.8 rushing yards and 208.4 passing yards per week. He ran for at least 40 yards in every game. Huntley’s per-game numbers from 2021 aren’t actually too far off Lamar Jackson’s rates from this season entering Week 13: 68.6 rushing YPG, 202.8 passing. Looking at the numbers, Tyler Huntley is the light beer version of Lamar Jackson. Vegas likes the Steelers -2.5, but all signs point to Baltimore coming up with a much-needed upset. If anything experts said about Tyler Huntley’s training camp is true, he is the perfect backup for Lamar Jackson. Ravens Moneyline is a very high-value bet.
