On Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers plays the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium in Camden Yards, Baltimore. This night match fits perfectly for an extravagant primetime sports entertainment in front of rabid Ravens' fans.
Both the Steelers and Ravens are tied for the lead in the AFC North. The team who wins this Sunday gets an upper hand in the AFC North division title. However, both teams feature first rate defense schemes and everyone should expect that this game would be a low scoring, highly intense and physical confrontation.
The Steelers are out to revenge their 17-14 home loss over the Ravens in Week 4. In that loss, it was QB Charlie Batch who was seeing the offense while All-Star QB Ben Roethlisberger sits out on his league-imposed suspension. Upon Big Ben's return he led the Steelers to 5 wins and 2 losses. Against the Ravens, Roethlisberger may encounter a tough Raven's defense from start to finish. He's expected to play this Sunday with a protective boot on his sprained right foot.
The Ravens hopes to duplicate their performance when they beaten the Steelers on the road in Week 4. It would be nice to earn another win at home and in front of their fans. However, they must not take the Steelers lightly even if Big Ben is nursing a sprained ankle. They must never underestimate the heart and pride of a champion.
The football handicappers have installed the Baltimore Ravens as the 3-point favorite to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers for the 2nd time this season.
