Bye weeks: Seahawks, Titans, Giants, Vikings.
Last week's record: 8-3-1. Season record: 90-43-1 (.672)
Baltimore at Pittsburgh, 5:20 p.m., Ch. 5
Think the possible absence of Ben Roethlisberger might dilute the drama of this game? Think again. Roethlisberger didn't play when the teams met in Week 4 in 2010, a game the Ravens won 17-14. That nail-biting margin is pretty par for the course. Seven of the past eight regular-season games between these teams have been decided by four points or fewer.
