OL has protected better, allowing 0 sacks versus a hungry Lions DL and a pretty solid Browneye DL.  Last matchup, the Ravens DL was dinged, now they are healthy.  Ray Rice is also back to being healthy now.  Always hate going to Balty, it's got bad mojo. 

That said, AB is playing lights out, and we're seeing good production from Sanders, Heat, and Cotchery.  On the flip, Flacco misses Boldin.  He's got some speed with Jones and Smith, but not a ton of diversity in his targets.

Steelers lose Curtis Brown for the season, and his time may be up here;  Mac will be out, so Woods and Fang will likely both see action; Woodley, he'll be watching for a while; Keisel will still be out; I think Shamarko is likely out too.  But I'm pleased overall with how the DL is stepping up, especially Heyward, but also Hood, and the OL as mentioned has been doing better and staying healthy; the skill guys are healthy; Pola has been playing with his assbeard on fire, and Will Allen has shown some spark.

This is the season for both teams.  Winner climbs ahead in the 6 seed running, loser has a losing divisional record.  It's gonna be chippy.  I think 20-16 still sounds about right, but who comes out on top remains a question.  Brain says Steelers, gut says Ravens.  Guess despite having the 3-game W streak, I still think the Steelers are a mediocre team, not playoff material, not top-10 in the draft.  But I'll be hoping for a kill shot.

Prior to the Lions game, I predicted:

@ Ravens 11/28:  Ravens 20, Steelers 16. 5-7.

I dunno.  Steelers are definitely upping their game, not sure the Ravens have.  But a short week on the road, I'm

Steelers (+3)

?

I'm not sure what to think about that yet.  Kinda feels like Vegas is trying to push the action towards Pittsburgh, but...

Man, it's fuckin' hard to pull off a season sweep of an intradivisional rival.

Gotta love the idea of keeping this rolling and putting a dagger in the Ravens at the same time.

Guess what I'm trying to say is, Fuck Baltimore.

There is not a single conversation where that doesn't fit.

Queen Elizabeth:  So what are your feelings about the States?

Merman:  Fuck Baltimore, your Majesty.

QE:  Jolly good!

Looks like Keisel and Shamarko are going to play. Love getting Shamarko back out there as I'm assuming alot of nickel.

Also looks like Woodley is out again due to finally eating his calf muscle.
