The Ravens will go on the road and into a fight like no other this weekend, as they play they Steelers. It is one of the most intense rivalries in all of sports. Both of these teams this week will be without some franchise players.
The Steelers may have lost their best player for the biggest game of the year, as Ben Roethlisberger went down with a shoulder injury on Monday. The Ravens clearly have the advantage leading up into their showdown on Sunday night, and with a great chance to create separation between themselves and Pittsburgh, Sunday’s match-up is a must win game.
The clock should run and run and run some more, just as the teams like to do, when Army and Navy reconvene Saturday for the 112th edition of one of the most special rivalries in sports.
A tale of two cities and one of the NFL’s fiercest rivalries. The Ravens prepare to head to Pittsburgh for Sunday night’s game.
“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.”
The Steelers have legitimate motivation for payback.
The win over the Steelers was more than just a victory. It sent a message.
When asked what he told younger players about the Ravens/Steelers rivalry Hines Ward said, “Just hit anything in purple and black.” That’s what this series has become.

The Ravens and Steelers are not only a rivalry, it is the best rivalry in football.
When I look at the Ravens potential roster, I don’t have the same fear that is expressed on the radio from others. I would like to believe Coach John Harbaugh is preparing his team for a 16-game season.
Army and Navy meet on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field in yet another installment of this proud rivalry, and none of these Black Knights has experienced the exhilaration of beating Navy. The Midshipmen, in fact, have defeated Army eight straight times and hold a 54-49-7 advantage in the series. Last year, Navy won, 17-3.
