PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - The NFL regular season has only five more weeks to go, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are getting set to play their biggest rival, the Baltimore Ravens, for just the first time this season.

Coming into this weekend with a record of 5-7, the Steelers are looking to build on their 2-game win streak against a Ravens team that may be without its top offensive weapon.

Head Coach John Harbaugh spoke to the media today and provided an update on Lamar Jackson, the former NFL MVP, and it is not a positive one for Ravens nation. 

Jackson injured his leg in the Ravens' game against the Denver Broncos in Week 13. Tyler Huntley, who has performed well in a backup role, led the Ravens to a victory in the final moments of last week's contest. 

This will provide a familiar face for the Steelers defense, as Huntley was the starting quarterback in their matchup last winter in Week 18, when the Steelers were victorious in overtime, 16-13. 

The black and gold aren't without their injury woes, as LB T.J. Watt and WR Diontae Johnson were limited in practice again on Friday. At the current time, Watt, Johnson and LB Malik Reed are all listed as questionable for Sunday's game. 

Pittsburgh has come out on top in the last four meetings against the Ravens.
