Steelers vs. Ravens live score, updates, highlights from 2024 NFL Saturday game

Author

The Steelers and Ravens are set to face off in Baltimore with playoff hopes at stake on Saturday.

The Ravens have already locked up the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC and the AFC North division, so they will only look to play spoiler in Week 18. MVP favorite Lamar Jackson will not suit up for Baltimore in its final game of the season, turning the offense over to familiar backup QB Tyler “Snoop” Huntley.

Pittsburgh doesn’t necessarily need a win to claim one of the AFC’s final wild card spots, but it would make its path to the playoffs much easier. With a victory, the Steelers would only need a loss from the Bills or Jaguars, with an outside hope of a Texans vs. Colts tie. If they lose, that wish list gets a little longer to qualify for the postseason.

Head coach Mike Tomlin is electing to stick with interim starting quarterback Mason Rudolph for the must-win game after leading the Steelers’ offense to back-to-back 30-point games for the first time this season. Regular starter Kenny Pickett has recovered from his ankle injury and will serve as the backup.
