Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin drifted onto the field with his back turned to the play in the third quarter Thursday night, narrowly avoiding a collision with Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones during a long kickoff return. The bizarre sequence during the 73-yard return sparked a controversy and angered the fans at M&T Bank Stadium as the Ravens wound up settling for a field goal during the 22-20 victory. Although Tomlin wasn't penalized for sideline interference as he jumped out of the way at the last second to avoid blocking Jones' path, Jones did appear to have to adjust to his direction.

Ravens running back Ray Rice shook his head for a moment while reflecting on one of the most frustrating aspects of this difficult season. No one in the NFL has been involved in as many close games as the Ravens this season, and the results haven't been favorable for the 5-6 team. The Ravens are 2-4 in games decided by three points or fewer. A year ago, it was a different story as the Ravens finished 5-3 in three-point games during the regular season on their way to winning the Super Bowl.

The Ravens will wear their black jerseys with black pants for the first time this season in Thursday night's primetime game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to the team's website. The Ravens wore their black jerseys with white pants on Oct. 13 against the Green Bay Packers. NFL teams are permitted to wear their alternate jerseys twice each season. It's the second straight year the Ravens will wear black for their home game against the rival Steelers. The Ravens also wore black uniforms the last time they played on Thanksgiving night, two years ago against the San Francisco 49ers.

When the Ravens made the trip to Heinz Field five weeks ago, they were presented with an opportunity to all but bury the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers were 1-4 at the time and winless at home. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was under siege, Pittsburgh had no running game to speak of and its defense wasn't getting pressure or creating turnovers. A 19-16 victory over the Ravens back on Oct. 20 wasn't necessarily a cure-all to the Steelers' problems but as the teams get set to renew acquaintances Thursday night at M&T Bank Stadium, the circumstances surrounding the game have changed significantly.

A few weeks ago there was laughter around the NFL because the primetime game Thanksgiving Day featured two losing teams: the Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers. But now, there is a renewed excitement. Both teams have losing records at 5-6, but the winner moves closer to securing the sixth and final spot for the AFC playoffs, and stays within striking distance of the AFC North leading Cincinnati Bengals. For the loser of Thursday's game, the season practically ends. "Stipulations are high," Ravens tight end Ed Dickson said.

The first time the Ravens' defense squared off with Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell, he manufactured his most productive NFL game. The Ravens say they've learned a lot about how to defend Bell after surrendering 93 yards on 19 carries to the 6-foot-1, 244-pound second-round draft pick during a 19-16 loss to the Steelers on Oct. 20 at Heinz Field. Heading into Thursday night's rematch at M&T Bank Stadium, Bell is a focal point for the Ravens, who have the NFL's 11th-ranked run defense.

Bal timore Sun staff members give their thoughts on the Ravens ' game against the New York Jets at M&T Bank Stadium in Week 12 of the NFL season. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: The Jets were just what the doctor ordered for the Ravens. It wasn't a complete game by any means for the Ravens, who struggled in the red zone and missed several opportunities. But it was plenty good enough against the Jets and their inept offense. With an inconsistent offense of their own, the Ravens are going to have to win this way going forward.

Ravens fans are living on the hopes of last season. After the team's 24-18 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, there isn't much left. You never give up on a team in the unpredictable world of the NFL, especially with eight games remaining, but there hasn't been much to build on. The secondary continues to blow coverages and the running game is pathetic. Except for receiver Torrey Smith, the Ravens don't have any consistent impact players on offense and John Harbaugh is having his worst year as a head coach.

With Josh Bynes sidelined against the Pittsburgh Steelers two weeks ago, Jameel McClain started at weak-side linebacker and played 30 snaps in his first NFL game since December. Bynes, who started the first six games of the season, returned to practice this week, but defensive coordinator Dean Pees said Thursday that the starting job will be McClain's going forward. “It's work. It's hard work going into it,” McClain said about earning the job back. “I don't know if I really put thought into how much it really means to me. It's just a chance for me to go out there and prove myself.

Player A has been targeted 26 times in his past four games, catching 14 passes for 179 yards and no TDs. Player B has been targeted 23 times in his past four games, catching 13 passes for 239 yards and no TDs. Player A is Anquan Boldin, whom the Ravens traded to the San Francisco 49ers during the offseason. Tandon Doss, the player the Ravens drafted -- and re-signed -- to be Boldin's replacement, is Player B. I am not presenting these two stat lines to suggest the 3-4 Ravens don't miss Boldin.
