    Default Steelers - Ravens Score Prediction

    what do you guys think?


    Week 13 matchup: Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens

    Sporting News


    Three key story lines to watch

    Postseason in sight. The winner of this game takes over sole possession of first place in the AFC North. Just as important, the winner has a good chance of finishing as the No. 1 or No. 2 seed in the AFC, and would have a first-round bye and at least one home game in the playoffs.

    Keep Ben on his feet. Steelers have to show they can protect quarterback Ben Roethlisberger against the Ravens' pass rush. The Ravens have used a lot of new stunts in the past two weeks, and the Steelers are without starting tackles Flozell Adams and Max Starks because of injuries. Buffalo forced Roethlisberger out of the pocket quite often a week ago.

    Real Baltimore please stand up. The Ravens haven't beaten a quality team since early in the season when they knocked off the Jets and Steelers, who were without Roethlisberger. Since then, the Ravens have lost to the Patriots and Falcons. In the next three weeks, they face Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Houston. It's time to find out if the Ravens are for real or not.

    Three key Ravens

    LB Jarret Johnson. He has played extremely well the past two games because his shoulder and back problems are gone. The Steelers will double up to rush outside linebacker Terrell Suggs on their left side, so Johnson has to have a big game on the right side. He might be the Ravens' most important pass rusher Sunday.

    WR Derrick Mason. He had a big game last week with eight catches for 87 yards. He'll have to be just as impressive Sunday because opposing teams are now bracketing Anquan Boldin all over the field. Look for the Mason versus Ike Taylor matchup. Mason will win it almost every time.

    C Matt Birk. He has to be on his game as far as calling out the blocking assignments. Pending on injuries, the Ravens might be without two starting offensive linemen in tackle Michael Oher and guard Chris Chester. Birk could be working with two newcomers against a defense which shifts and blitzes a lot.

    Three key Steelers

    C Maukice Pouncey. He got pummeled last week against Buffalo, and it won't get any easier against the Ravens. He'll have either Kelly Gregg or Haloti Ngata in his face all afternoon. The Ravens respect Pouncey, but he won't face another duo as strong as Gregg and Ngata. Look for Pouncey to get a lot of help from the guards.

    QB Ben Roethlisberger. He's a Ravens killer. He usually finds a way to beat the Ravens with a long drive at the end of a game. The Ravens, like other teams, have a hard time bringing Roethlisberger down, and they have spent a lot of time as a defense figuring out ways to attack him. The Ravens thought they got a great warm-up act for Roethlisberger last week against Tampa Bay's Josh Freeman. If they can't tackle him, the Ravens at least have to keep Roethlisberger in the pocket.

    WR Mike Wallace. Because the Ravens corners play so soft, they have a tough time running with speedsters, and Wallace could present some problems for the Ravens. The Steelers have to notice the Ravens vulnerability on the outside, so they'll go after cornerbacks Josh Wilson and Lardarius Webb. Webb bites often on double moves.

    Bottom line

    Before last week, it would have been an easy choice picking Baltimore over Pittsburgh. If the Ravens can get injured players like Oher (knee), Chester (skin disease), fullback Le'Ron McClain (ankle) and safety Dawan Landry (concussion) healthy, the Ravens will beat the Steelers because Pittsburgh can't contain the Ravens' pass rush. Simply put, the Steelers can't score and the Ravens have enough firepower to control the clock. If the injured players don't play, Pittsburgh might pull out the victory.

    Prediction: Ravens 17, Pittsburgh 14.

    Is that a TD and safety, or 3 FG's?

    I'd like to think that our offense should be able to get the ball across the goaline at least once...?...right?

    We dont even compete in the BIGGEST game in well over a year?

    Hopefully the players in the locker room dont share your "enthusiasm?"

    Well, our O-line is pretty banged-up, and I seriously doubt they'll give Ben too much time/protection... And I'm actually a bit worried about their WRs torching our secondary... And say what you want about Flacco, but I don't just call him a "game manager" anymore. He's ranked #11 in the league for a reason...

    ... The predicted score above might be accurate, but that's why they play the game... I expect an extremely hard-fought contest.

    I was just BS'n with my buddy (who is a HUGE Ravens fan), and he seems to have some reservations about Baltimore's OL being able to handle our pass rush! Apparently their line has taken some lumps too?

    I am thinking along lines like you....only one problem...which ****in Steeler team is going to show up??? the one that put a foot in the Raiders ***......or the one that seemed to **** around all day against the Bills...and realized in the 4th quarter they could easliy lose?????

    IMO...too many TD's...not enough FG's....hard fought battle but rough to score once in the red zone...my prediction:

    Steelers 16
    Ravens 13

    Agreed - but the rats aren't the rrrrrrraidahs.

    I know which Steeler team showed up during the other key game during the year against the cheats and if that one shows up on Sunday, you might want to stay off of PST for a couple days afterward.

    Unfortunately I also predict 3 turnovers by the Steelers and although Ben starts the game he doesn't finish it.
    Another loss will still keep us in the running for a Wild-Card spot. Don't worry....be happy!

    I already put the Pats game out of memory.....but the last 2 games are still fresh but are tales of 2 different teams IMO....regardless of the opponent.
