Primetime Sat nite we face off against our fiercest rival the Pittsburgh Steelers I feel it we will focused, prepared and rareing to go.I believe our front 7 can exploit the Steelers OL particularly with the return of Haloti Ngata and the play of Pernell McPhee and rookie DT Timmy Jernigan down the stretch.Our secondary has improved a great deal since the last meeting with Pittsburgh Rashaan Melvin has Iimproved week to week and shows much confidence. Lardarius Webb and Anthony Levine are healthy we will pressure Big Ben and stymie their passing attack.Offensively Joe Flacco has great mismatches at his disposal he will play one of his better road games, although he inconsistent at times he comes up big in the playoffs the "road warrior" will strike deep and often our Ravens will start 2015 off on a good note.
