Game facts: Steelers at Ravens

More than a rivalry:  The winner of this week 9 matchup between Baltimore and Pittsburgh will take sole possession of first place in the AFC North. 

Now that's close:  In 19 career games coaching head-to-head (including playoffs), John Harbaugh has 10 wins and Mike Tomlin has nine.

Both slumping:  The Ravens and Steelers are each on a skid of their own right now. After starting 3-0, the Ravens have lost their last four; meanwhile, the Steelers have lost two straight after a 4-1 start. 

The Big Three:  Since 2013, the Steelers are 22-12 when Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown all play (including playoffs). They are 12-12 in all other games. 

Where's the pass rush?:  The Steelers have just eight sacks this season (last in NFL). 

Not exactly a 'Steel Curtain':  The Steelers defense allows 6.1 yards per play (28th in NFL) and 283.4 pass yards per game (26th in NFL).
