Week 13 breakdown

It’s hard to choose a true “Game of the Week” when you’ve got Jets-Patriots, Falcons-Buccaneers and this one all in the same week, but the AFC North should be decided under the lights in Baltimore on Sunday.

It’s hard to choose a true “Game of the Week” when you’ve got Jets-Patriots, Falcons-Buccaneers and this one all in the same week, but the AFC North should be decided under the lights in Baltimore on Sunday. The Ravens have never swept the Steelers in the Joe Flacco/John Harbaugh era and haven’t won both meetings over Pittsburgh since 2006. Look for Ray Lewis and Co. to take advantage of a depleted Pittsburgh offensive line and to move a step closer to the team’s third consecutive trip to the playoffs.
The Pick: BAL 24, PIT 20

By the numbers

60
Houston’s Andre Johnson is the first player in NFL history to record at least 60 receptions in each of his first eight seasons.

.950
With his last-second win last Sunday over Green Bay, Atlanta’s Matt Ryan tied the Cowboys’ Danny White for the best winning percentage in a player’s first 20 home games. Ryan credits the fans for his ridiculous 19-1 record at the Georgia Dome.

Player to watch:
Brian Westbrook, 49ers
With Frank Gore (hip) out, look for the ex-Eagle RB to return to his monster form of 2006-08. He ran for 136 yards last week and plays GB on Sunday.
