After being checked out in the sideline medical tent, Peterman was escorted to the locker room for further evaluation of a head injury and did not return. After the game, the club confirmed that Peterman is in the concussion protocol.
Thomas Hennessy, LS, New York Jets: Hennessy had to be helped off the field during the first quarter after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit and was brought back to the locker room for further evaluation of a head injury. He did not return, and Eric Tomlinson took over long-snapping duties.
Suggs had both of Baltimore’s sacks on Monday and, while the Ravens defense is by no means poor, it is not the elite unit that paved the way for the franchise’s two Super Bowl titles.
The Ravens have played better recently, winning three straight, but their offense is still a problem. On the defensive side, Baltimore has 20 interceptions this season, the most in the league. Last year, they led the league with 18. This will be a tough, gritty game, but at home, Pittsburgh has a great chance to earn yet another victory.
Not good, right? That may be correct, but Miami has gone .500 or better at home in five of the last six seasons, and it enters this week 3-3 at Hard Rock Stadium in 2017. Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake has a rushing touchdown in two of his last four games. Those are the only two rushing TDs for the Dolphins this season.
With the running game coming alive and Jay Cutler providing enough firepower to feed the Dolphins’ bevy of receivers, Miami may have a chance to win. But the odds aren’t great.
