Who I like, Baltimore-Pittsburgh
There's been no smack talk this week - at least publicly - because the Steelers and Ravens know how much is at stake this week.

A win by the Steelers would put them in excellent position and put the Ravens behind the eight ball at 2-2 - and more importantly, 1-2 in the AFC North.

Because of that, the Ravens need this game more than the Steelers, which is usually a big factor for me when picking games.

But, the intensity of the rivalry cancels that out. Neither of these teams takes a game against the other for granted. There will be plenty of emotion to go around.

The Steelers have a way of making Joe Flacco look like some guy the Ravens just brought in off the street. But, Ray Rice's quickness and elusiveness also causes problems for the Pittsburgh defense.

That said, the Steelers are 4-0 under Mike Tomlin against the Ravens in Pittsburgh.

And this Baltimore defense can be run on - not because of its front seven, but because its secondary doesn't play the run very well.

Rashard Mendenhall has been getting into the secondary this season.

Take Pittsburgh, 16-13

24-10. Our Defense will eat them for lunch, and our O has too much against their depleted pass D.

I dont know, classic Charlie Batch comes back to earth type of game. Ball control, field position, hard hits...but the Steelers have been beating the crap out of teams last two weeks and I think Flacco will get beaten down. We keep giving up a couple more points each game, so I predict something near 24-16 and 4-0.

I predict Charlie gets inured on a cheap shot by Ray Lewis forcing Lefty into the game. He is the hero this week.
