Tecmo Bowl Futures - Steelers Vs. Ravens

New, comments

You can go anywhere on the web and find what the experts think the outcome of any game will be. I have my own expert. She was born in 1991 and has had my heart ever since. Her name, Tecmo Super Bowl.

While the Thursday night game does not involve the Bengals, the outcome will be relevant on the AFC North standings. Do the Steelers beat the Ravens and take a lead in the division while sending Baltimore to a horrible 0-2 start? Or, can the Ravens put a full game together and knock the Steelers back to even?

On one hand, it would be nice to see the Ravens start their season horribly and put themselves in such a hole that the rest of the year becomes an uphill battle. On the other, I can't root for the Steelers. Ever.

So I leave the prognostication up to Tecmo:

The Steelers win the toss and elect to receive the football.

On a pass that had no business being thrown, Ben Roethlisberger gets picked off and the Ravens are in a good position to put the Steelers on their heels. Then Joe Flacco, not to be out done, promptly gives the ball right back to the Steelers.

3_medium 4_medium

The Steelers complete a long pass to Antonio Brown and take a 7-0 lead.

5_medium 6_medium

On the Ravens next possession, they have trouble getting away from the goal line and Ryan Shazier makes them pay.

7_medium

Roethlisberger finds Brown again and the Steelers start to run away with this one.

8_medium 9_medium

At the end of one, the Steelers are on top of the Ravens 16 - 0.

10_medium

Finally the Ravens find life. Joe Flacco hits Steve Smith Sr. for a long touchdown to chip into the Steelers lead.

But the Antonio Brown connection is strong tonight and the Steelers answer right back.

13_medium 14_medium

Flacco's answer is another interception. This time however, the Steelers struggle to move the ball.

15_medium 16_medium

The Ravens defense holds and the Steelers attempt a field goal.

17_medium 18_medium

At the half, the Steelers lead 26 - 7.

19_medium

The Steelers come out with some tough defense, but the Ravens adjustments seem to work and Flacco finds Torrey Smith wide open for a huge gain. Owen Daniels then gets the opportunity for the score.

In what has become the theme, Roethlisberger finds Brown for the answer.

23_medium 24_medium

The Ravens kick returner Jacoby Jones finds a seam and almost takes one for a touchdown. A short field for the offense should result in some points.

25_medium

Ouch.

26_medium

At the end of 3, the Steelers lead 33 to the Ravens 14.

28_medium

In the 4th, the Steelers are held to another field goal try, this time it is a miss.

29_medium 30_medium

In the too little too late category, Joe Flacco finds Torrey Smith wide open for a score.

31_medium 32_medium

In keeping with the theme of the day. The Steelers answer with another touchdown to Antonio Brown.

33_medium 34_medium

In the end, Antonio Brown was too much for the Ravens to handle and the Steelers walk away from this one with the win.
