Jen Royle: It’s Steelers Week…Again
It’s about that time again, isn’t it? Does it seem like Week 1 was EIGHT weeks ago (including the bye week) when the Ravens whipped the Steelers butts, 35-7?
Well, the consensus throughout the Ravens locker room is that they’re about to face a completely different and more experienced Steelers. Even though Pitt’s defense has some key components missing, Ben Roethlisberger is coming off AFC Player of the Week honors and the Ravens know playing in Hines Field is never an easy task.
Ray Rice put it perfectly:
“They’re home,” Rice said on Wednesday. “They’ve got their song and their terrible towel. It’s a tough place to play. Their fans do a great job of making it loud on third down. They do what they’re supposed to do.”
And Terrell Suggs, who’s always colorful during Steelers weeks, says the Steelers will be out for revenge after their season-opening loss.
“They are definitely going to have some ‘let’s get after them’ to their game. But, in hindsight, who knocked us out of the playoffs last year? Wee are definitely going to have to see these guys again.”
What do you all think? Is this the last time the Ravens will face the Steelers this season? What’s your prediction for Sunday?
