The Pittsburgh Steelers will take on the Baltimore Ravens Thursday night at M&T Bank Stadium and below are seven things to watch for in the game. Taylor Made? - Ike Taylor is coming off of his worst two games of the season. In the last two weeks he has given up 14 catches for 328 yard and three touchdowns when targeted in coverage. Thursday night against the Ravens, Taylor will more than likely be stuck on wide receiver Torrey Smith for most of the game. Back in Week 7, Taylor held Smith to only two receptions for 57 yards.

However, the Ravens were banged up headed into that game, but that won't be the case this time around. DeCastro really made an impact when he was able to get off of his fi...
