Ravens Should Still Own AFC North After Latest Steelers Trade Rumor

In 2023, the Baltimore Ravens ran through the AFC North en route to a division championship and the No. 1 seed in the AFC for the postseason.

 

 

With a 3-3 record in against North opponents, it wasn’t a dominating performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals, but it was good enough for the division crown.

All three Ravens North foes will be trying to get better this offseason, and in particular, the Steelers, who are struggling at the quarterback position. Pittsburgh and Cleveland made the postseason thanks to high-quality players up and down the rosters, but without strong quarterback play, the Steelers will be fighting for wins.

After a season where he threw for 2,070 yards with a 62 percent completion rate with six touchdowns and four interceptions, Pittsburgh may be giving up on Kenny Pickett.

 

 

And if so, DraftKings has the Steelers with -125 odds to land Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields in a trade. Could he improve the Pittsburgh offense?

The Bears are 10-28 over the past three seasons as a starter, and although piling up 2,220 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground, Fields has not proven he can be a prolific passer. The Ohio State Buckeye has a combined completion percentage of 60.3 over three seasons and has thrown 40 touchdowns to 30 interceptions.

There might be better options for the Steelers, who just released Mitchell Trubisky, but even if Pittsburgh acquires Russell Wilson or Kirk Cousins, it seems it’ll still be behind the Ravens in the division.
