Ravens QB Tyler Huntley to start vs. Steelers
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley will start Sunday’s regular-season finale against the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers, coach John Harbaugh said Friday.
Huntley will get the nod in place of former NFL MVP Lamar Jackson, who will miss his fourth straight game with a right ankle injury.
“That’s the way we’ll go,” Harbaugh said without offering an injury update.
Huntley, 23, has thrown for 940 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in parts of six games this season.
He has rushed for 222 yards and two scores for the Ravens (8-8), who will need to defeat the Steelers (8-7-1) and have the Los Angeles Chargers, Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins lose their respective season finales in order to qualify for the playoffs.
The Chargers visit the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, while the Colts visit the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Dolphins host the New England Patriots.
