Coincidentally, the last time Griffin III started an NFL game was in Week 17 of 2016, as he threw for two touchdowns in a 27-24 loss to the Steelers. In his debut start for the Ravens, Griffin III will be without several weapons taking on the Steelers.
Veteran players such as Marshal Yanda, Mark Ingram, Earl Thomas and Brandon Williams undoubtedly should rest in Week 17 as all of them have experienced injuries throughout the season. Staying healthy is priority number one for the Ravens as the result of their game only impacts the Steelers.
In order for Pittsburgh to reach the playoffs, they need to defeat the Ravens as well as get help from the Texans to defeat the Titans.
