The Pittsburgh Steelers’ win over the New York Jets last week puts more juice into the first Ravens Week of the 2013 season.
Had the Steelers started 0-5, their only motivation Sunday would have been to stick their biggest rival with a loss that could come back to haunt them when they’re fighting for a playoff spot.
Now, a win over the Ravens would improve the Steelers’ record to 2-4, and they’d no longer be facing lottery-like odds to make the playoffs.
It’s still too early, however, for the Steelers to think about the playoffs. They have to go 9-2, maybe 8-3, the rest of the way to have any shot at playing in January.
For now, the Steelers still have to think like spoilers.
The Steelers would pull to within a half-game of the Ravens with a win Sunday and make the Ravens’ path to the Super Bowl more difficult.
They’d also make it clear that the Ravens are suffering from a Super Bowl hangover.

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu made a valiant effort to time the snap on an extra point block attempt against Baltimore during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game at Heinz Field. Polamalu made a nice leap over the Ravens center, but he was just a bit too early. Still, Polamalu gets an 'A' for effort on this play. H/T BR. Visit us at holdoutsports.com...
Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t make the playoffs in 2012, Charlie Batch did lead them to a dramatic upset of the eventual Super Bowl-champion Baltimore Ravens in early December.
When Shaun Suisham’s field goal sailed through the uprights as time ran out in Baltimore, Batch and Ben Roethlisberger embraced for at least 30 seconds. They knew they were nearing the end...
The Pittsburgh Steelers have won two straight games. The Steelers beat their divisional rivals, the Baltimore Ravens, 19-16 in dramatic fashion.
Shaun Suisham kicked a game winning field goal in the final seconds to lift the Steelers over the Ravens. Suisham just might be the team’s MVP so far this season. The kicker deserves a lot of credit.
Suisham was a perfect 4 for 4 against...
You can't count on the Steelers to win all the time now. Ben Roethlisberger? Not the same fantasy friendly QB he used to be. You certainly can't count on the running game for much, and even the defense these days is not as beastly as it once was. However, you can always count on one thing.

Did anyone else expect to see Ben Roethlisberger go all Jim Valvano and run across the Heinz Field turf desperately looking for Charlie Batch after Sunday’s game?
Aren’t Batch and Roethlisberger supposed to engage in a minute-long bro hug whenever Shaun Suisham kicks a last-second field goal in a Pittsburgh Steelers’ win over the Baltimore Ravens?

Yesterday, we highlighted some of the struggles that Pittsburgh Steelers rookie starting outside linebacker Jarvis Jones had while facing the New York Jets, which saw him being fooled on misdirections or missing tackles that led to big games. He looked more like a rookie at moments in this past game than he had in the first four.
In the aforementioned article, however...

Over the past couple years, the Pittsburgh Steelers were more often than not able to turn to Jason Worilds whenever they needed an injury replacement at outside linebacker, either for James Harrison or LaMarr Woodley.
This year, he was supposed to take the next step and become the starter, but after beginning the season with the title, it was just a week later that...

We have seen Troy do this so many times, where he appears to have a six sense about the snap count. Not so much here. See the GIF below:

Steelers rookie outside linebacker Jarvis Jones diagnosed with a concussion Wednesday has been listed as questionable for the game Sunday at Heinz Field against the Baltimore Ravens.
Jones did not take any repetitions Friday in team drills. Instead he went through a light exercise regimen one of the necessary steps involved for concussed players to be cleared to play.
Troy Polamalu has been showing flashes of his old self these past few weeks, and it reprises his former role of best defender in the game when he absolute crushes Ravens wide receiver Tandon Doss coming across the middle.
As is always the case with Polamalu, he took a blow while giving one as well. Kudos to Doss for hanging on as well.
A few more hits like that, and this thing...

The Pittsburgh Steelers enter the second half clinging to a four-point lead after relinquishing an 11th hour turnover on a Heath Miller fumble that led to a Baltimore Ravens field goal to end the half with the score of 10-6. The Ravens open the second half with the ball after deferring on the opening coin toss.
Jacoby Jones returned the opening kickoff out to the...
