When: 7:25 p.m. Thursday • TV: Ch. 4 • Line: Ravens by 2 ½

The skinny: The Ravens are off to their worst start since the franchise moved to Baltimore two decades ago. If the Steelers want to keep pace behind unbeaten Cincinnati in the AFC North, they'll have to do it with Michael Vick under center.

Notes: The Ravens and Steelers have split the past 30 regular-season meetings, with 20 of them decided by seven points or less. … The Steelers are 10-8 in games without Ben Roethlisberger since 2004 but just 1-5 against the Ravens. … After rushing for a career-high 1,266 yards in 2014, Ravens RB Justin Forsett has only 124 this season — including 13 on 10 carries last week against Cincinnati.
