OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - The Baltimore Ravens enter the most difficult part of the schedule coming off their most dominant performance of the season.
Baltimore hopes the confidence derived from its 55-20 rout of Oakland will carry into Sunday night's showdown at Pittsburgh - and beyond that.
Before facing the Raiders on Sunday, the Ravens were sporadic on offense and victimized by inconsistent defensive play. Both units excelled against Oakland, and special teams contributed two touchdowns to the highest-scoring output in franchise history.
Baltimore (7-2) stands alone atop the AFC North, but the final games offer a steep challenge. After Sunday night's game, the Ravens travel to San Diego, where they lost 34-14 last year. Baltimore then hosts the Steelers. The final four games are against Washington, Denver, the New York Giants and Cincinnati.
