Don't get me wrong; I hear what you're saying. I'd definitely say both the Ravens and Steelers have a couple of the top/consistent defenses of the last 5-6 years. Offensively, the Steelers would no doubt be better. Although, I've been a Ravens fan for a good time now (NFC-wise I'm a 49ers fan since being in the womb). I've also got a bit of a problem with Rothlisberger, it's my own bias. I will say this though, the Ravens have a serious uphill battle on their hands. Earlier in the season when they played the Steelers they got their asses handed to them. And if the Ravens start off the first half like they did last week, they're not going to have much of a shot. Still, it should be a solid, low scoring, knock down, drag out type of game. I'm guessing at least two notable injuries for each side.
