Ravens Will Be Facing Different Lineup Sunday Steelers Embrace Newer Look from Week 2 Loss


Bouchette, Ed, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, PA)


The Steelers will dress differently this Halloween weekend, bearing little resemblance to the team that played in Baltimore in the second game of the season.

They have new receivers, new cornerbacks, a new/old linebacker, new attitudes and even a new approach to the game. It's a good thing for them, too, because the Ravens laid one on them that Thursday night in September, 26-6.

"We have a whole different team right now," defensive end Cam Heyward said. "The month of September is long behind us. We're in November now."

The personnel changes alone are striking.

Lance Moore has replaced Justin Brown as the slot receiver. Rookie receiver Martavis Bryant not only is active, he's actively involved, catching three touchdown passes in the past two games, the only ones he has played.

William Gay and Brice McCain have replaced Cortez Allen and injured Ike Taylor as the starting cornerbacks. Arthur Moats replaced injured Jarvis Jones at outside linebacker. He's sharing the position with linebacker James Harrison, who was home watching the game Sept. 11, a man without a team. Harrison is now one sack from the team lead.

"And Brett Keisel was still in preseason mode," Heyward said of the veteran defensive end who did not rejoin the team until after training camp.

There also will be more changes this weekend. Steve McLendon returns at nose tackle after missing the past two games. Rookie Ryan Shazier is back after missing four games. Marcus Gilbert returns at right tackle after missing 1 1/2 games.

Perhaps the biggest change, though, is how the Steelers have been playing. After that Baltimore game, they had been outscored, 53-9, over six quarters. Today, the Steelers are 5-3, same as the Ravens with a chance for the winner to move into first place in the AFC North Division. The Steelers also are fresh off their most exhilarating victory this season, 51-34, over the Indianapolis Colts, which also was their second consecutive win.

They would seem to be a much better team than the one that played in Baltimore four days after they blew a 27-3 lead at home in the opener to Cleveland before pulling out a 30-27 victory on a last- second field goal.

"I would agree with that," offensive tackle Kelvin Beachum said. "I think we're executing at a high level, that's one of the big things. Even though we turned the ball over the other night, we're not turning it over as much. …
