The Baltimore Ravens sit at 13-3 on the season heading into the last week of the regular season.

Baltimore’s regular season pursuits have put them in sole possession of the AFC’s #1 seed and a first round playoff bye.

With no opposition for that one seed, the Ravens are doing what any reasonable team would do and resting some key starters for the last game of the regular season.

With Lamar Jackson getting a week of rest and relaxation, Baltimore is turning towards former Utah Ute signal caller, Tyler Huntley, to lead the charge at home against AFC North rival, Pittsburgh.

For Huntley, he’s fresh off a touchdown toss last week against Miami in which he relieved Jackson in a blowout victory and found Charlie Kolar for a 19-yard score.

That was Huntley’s only pass attempt of the day and it was on the money.

Huntley has appeared in 4 games this season, attempting 9 passes whilst completing 6 of them.

Those 6 completions have yielded 57 yards and two touchdowns alongside 4 first downs.

It’s been a very small sample size, with the majority of those stats bolstered by a 5/7, 38 yards. 1 touchdown game against Seattle. Yet, with no interceptions, it’s been very productive.

The Ravens have full confidence in Huntley for this week’s game and Huntley sees it as a major opportunity to ball out.

The Ravens would love nothing more than to spoil the Steeler’s playoff hopes, and with Huntley under center that can still be done.

If you go back to last season, Tyler started 4 games for the Ravens, including the wild card matchup in Cincinnati.

In that postseason tilt, Huntley went 17/29 for 226 yards and threw two touchdowns in a tough loss. He added 54 yards on the ground, including a 35-yard dash.

He threw a pick and lost a fumble, but on the big stage Huntley performed well enough to make the Bengals sweat.

As a part time starter, the last two seasons (8 starts) Huntley has a record of 3-5 as the lead signal caller.

On his career, the former Ute is 206/314 (65.5 completion percentage) for 1,811 yards and a 7-7 touchdown to interception ratio.

On the ground he has accounted for 469 yards on 107 tries with three scores.

No doubt Huntley will add to the statistics this Saturday against the Steelers, but for Tyler its all about just getting another win.
