The Ravens have a losing record and are in danger of missing the playoffs for the fourth year in a row, so coach John Harbaugh now finds himself fielding questions about job security as he tries to bring Baltimore back into contention. He wouldn't say who would be responsible for Brown from Pittsburgh's secondary, which is expected to have cornerback Artie Burns in the mix after using him exclusively on special teams against Cleveland.
Baltimore's offense is trending in the exact opposite direction of the Steelers.
"I've never been somebody that ever anxious about keeping a job", Harbaugh said after the game, via ProFootballTalk.
"I'm just doing what I love to do", Conner said.

No running back on the Steelers roster has more than ten carries other than James Conner, showing off the confidence instilled in the second-year man out of Pitt. Conner also caught a 7-yard touchdown pass.
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco showed up at practice this week without the beard he's worn for the first eight weeks of the season.
When asked whether the team has to make a few changes to create a spark, Flacco replied: "No I don't". The Ravens have a bye this week, giving team brass both a lot to ponder and an extended amount of time to do it. We know if we take care of our business, things will work out for themselves.
"We've got to get healed up".

Roethlisberger was collared from behind by Za'Darius Smith and remained on the ground for several minutes. "It's great that we get to go against Pittsburgh, a divisional opponent, knowing we have to play at a high level".
If Pittsburgh's past three games are any indication, the defensive backs might have a better chance against Brown this time.
"To hold those guys to field goals in the first half when they were down there was significant", Tomlin said.
But the Ravens are in the midst of a serious dry spell, and owner Steve Bisciotti acknowledged last February that firing Harbaugh after the 2017 season "was certainly a consideration".

"I think we can turn it around", wide receiver John Brown said. Haden knows that can't happen again.
