Ravens vs. Steelers Key Players: Justin Forsett

Byline MattThe Ravens came into the 2014 season with a giant hole at the running back position, but it didn’t take long for Forsett to enter into the starting role. He ran for over 100 yards five times this season, ending with 1,266 yards total and eight touchdowns to go with it.

Forsett rushed for four yards per carry in nine of the Ravens’ 10 wins and often controlled the offense late in games. Without a healthy Forsett, the Ravens could struggle against the Steelers front-seven. Certainly Bernard Pierce and Lorenzo Taliaferro won’t carry the load like Forsett can.

If the offensive line can hold up enough to find lanes for Forsett, he could have a successful day. With the erratic pass offense of the last couple weeks, a solid run game is essential if the Ravens want to win.
