The Baltimore Ravens dominated the Pittsburgh Steelers for most of the game on Sunday, yet they couldn’t leave Acrisure Stadium with a win.
The Steelers scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to secure a hard-fought 17-10 win.
And while Mike Tomlin’s team deserves all the credit in the world for the way they stuck together and got the win, former Dallas Cowboys star Michael Irvin expressed his concern for this Ravens squad.
In his latest appearance on “Undisputed,” the legendary WR stated that the Steelers defense intimidated the Ravens receiving corps with their physicality, leading to multiple unforced errors and avoidable mistakes.

Irvin stated that people raved about the Ravens receiving corps, yet he had never seen as many drops on easy catches as he saw on that game, praising Lamar Jackson for making the right play more often than not.
He also stated that, as much as he loves Odell Beckham Jr., it’s more than evident that he’s not at full strength right now.
He saw OBJ limping and favoring one leg while running his routes, and he believes he doesn’t have full confidence in his body right now.
Against all odds, the Steelers sit atop of the AFC North after five weeks with a 3-2 record.
Kenny Pickett has been mostly solid and their defense is special.
But again, this is yet another testament to Tomlin’s greatness, especially when his team is an underdog and has its back against the wall.
One way or another, they’ll find a way to get the job done.NEXT: Julian Edelman Shares His Thoughts On Patriots' Struggles
