This is what Gary Kubiak's West Coast offense is supposed to look like. It's an offense predicated on running the ball and setting up the passing game off play-action fakes. Of course, the Ravens would like to have converted a few more of those field goals into touchdowns Thursday night, but that should come in the future. Nearly a week after throwing 62 passes, the Ravens stayed with the run and they came away with a big win against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens didn't have a lot of big-gainers, but they had over 100 yards rushing and were committed to the run. That set up two touchdown passes off play-action fakes from quarterback Joe Flacco to tight end Owen Daniels . The running game has always been a major staple of a Kubiak offense from his days as an assistant coach and coordinator with the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos.

The short span between the Ravens' loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday and tonight's prime-time showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers was made interminable by the release of Ray Rice. As team and league officials scrambled to quell the controversy surrounding the former running back, the Ravens and their coaches kept their sights on a game heightened in importance by their Week 1 loss and the visiting rival Steelers. "It's everything," Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said of the game.

Emotional about Ray Rice's release and still stinging from a season-opening defeat, the Ravens play AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers in two days. The quick turnaround looms for the Ravens following a disappointing game Sunday in which they lost, 23-16, to the Cincinnati Bengals. The potential of falling into an 0-2 hole in the division makes the Steelers game a pivitol one for a team that just dismissed one of its top players. "It was a tough loss," veteran defensive end Chris Canty said.

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin displayed his sense of humor Tuesday when asked if Ravens kick returner Jacoby Jones needs to watch out for him on the kickoff team Thursday night. "No, I won't be," Tomlin said with a laugh during a conference call with Baltimore reporters. "Tell Jacoby he's safe. " Tomlin was fined $100,000 by the NFL last season for sideline interference when he nearly collided with Jones, jumping out of the way at the last moment to avoid colliding with the Pro Bowl return specialist.

By now, the Ravens' 2014 regular-season schedule has been sufficiently dissected . And yet, it surprises me a little bit that I'm still hearing from some fans that think the schedule sets up poorly for the Ravens. Look, there's no such thing as an ideal schedule. All 32 teams have challenging stretches or difficult matchups. But all-in-all, I think the Ravens got a pretty favorable draw in terms of who they play, and when and where they play them. I'm not sure it's preferable to be facing the other AFC North teams the first three weeks of the season, but I don't necessarily see it as a bad thing.

With a lot of local attention over the weekend focused on running back Ray Rice's recent indictment on a charge of aggravated assault and Opening Day for the Orioles, some big news went unnoticed. The Ravens didn't sign running back LeGarrette Blount - and the Pittsburgh Steelers did. The two-year deal, which is reportedly worth $3.85 million, leaves the Ravens with a big hole and also means they'll have to face a new two-headed monster in Pittsburgh with Blount and Le'Veon Bell.

Even as the Ravens' search for an offensive coordinator appears to be moving away from him, former Detroit Lions assistant Scott Linehan would be their best option. On paper, Linehan has more experience than the three candidates who are reportedly in the running for the job: Ravens wide receivers coach Jim Hostler, Pittsburgh Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson and former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. As of midday Thursday, Linehan had not been scheduled for a second interview, according to a league source.

With the Ravens' season on the brink, wide receiver Torrey Smith is hesitant to talk about his individual successes in a breakout season. He knows he is within reach of breaking a franchise record, but only because the media keeps asking him about it. The mention of it instead makes him lament the plays he has left on the field, which have been more prevalent in the season's second half. "I look at it as I could easily be at 1,500 yards right now. Easily," Smith said. "I can think of a few plays off the top of my head - I can still envision them - that I didn't make.

Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I will enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Lindsay Patterson, who covers the Bengals for ESPN 1530 in Cincinnati . MV: Outside of that dud against the Pittsburgh Steelers two weeks ago, the Bengals have been on a roll since their overtime loss to the Ravens in Week 10. What clicked for the new AFC North champs?

After losing to the New England Patriots, 41-7, on Sunday, the Ravens now need a little help if they want to reach the postseason. In order to clinch the sixth and final playoff berth, the Ravens (8-7) need to defeat the AFC North division champion Cincinnati Bengals (10-5) in the regular-season finale and they need either the Miami Dolphins (8-7) to lose to the New York Jets or the San Diego Chargers (8-7) to lose to the Kansas City Chiefs. If there's a three-way tie between the teams to finish the season, the Dolphins hold the edge because of their 7-4 conference record over the Ravens' 6-5 conference record and the Chargers' 5-6 mark.
