Roethlisberger Will Look To Buck These Two Poor Trends If He Plays Against Ravens

While it’s still yet to be determined if Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will play against the Baltimore Ravens following the team’s bye week, if he does wind up being back for that game, he’ll be looking to break an 0-4 streak on the road against one of the team’s divisional opponents.

In Roethlisberger’s last four starts against the Ravens in Baltimore, he has completed 96 of his 157 pass attempts for 984 yards with 3 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. Additionally, he was sacked a total of 9 times in those four games. If that’s not enough, the Steelers only averaged 12.5 points in those four losses that date back to the 2011 season.

While Roethlisberger has beaten the Ravens twice so far during his career in Baltimore, both of those wins included the Steelers only scoring 13 total points in each of them. For his career against the Ravens in Baltimore, Roethlisberger has completed 173 of his 297 total pass attempts for 1,873 yards with 7 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He’s also been sacked a total of 26 times in the Charmed City.

As many of you should know by now, Roethlisberger also hasn’t been overly great during his career in his first game back after missing at least one contest due to any injury. Last season, Roethlisberger threw just one touchdown and 3 interceptions at home against the Cincinnati Bengals in a Steelers loss after missing the team’s four previous games due to a left knee injury

That Week 8 loss to the Bengals last season resulted in Roethlisberger now being 2-5 during his career in his first games back following missed time due to an injury. Additionally, the Steelers only averaged 15 points a game in those seven contests.

Assuming he does play, a week from Sunday wouldn’t certainly be great time for Roethlisberger to break his four-game road losing streak against the Ravens. If he doesn’t, the Steelers will lose their AFC North lead as a result.
