The most heated rivalry in the NFL takes place again this Sunday. The Baltimore Ravens visit the Pittsburgh Steelers in a huge game in the AFC North title race.Here are three bold predictions of what might happen at Heinz Field this weekend.No. 1: Both Torrey Smith and Antonio Brown will have 150+ receiving yards and one touchdown.The No. 1 receiver from each team are both set to have big games for different reasons.Brown is in good form going into this matchup against a Ravens defense that isn’t the same as the Super Bowl winning powerhouse from last season.Brown has 498 yards and two touchdowns so far this year and with the Steelers' offense slowly improving as the year goes on; Brown is poised to have a great season.Smith on the other hand has 568 yards and one touchdown this year and has enough pace to cause problems for any secondary. The key for the Steelers to defending this threat is for Troy Polamalu to be a little less aggressive on the blitz and to drop back into coverage more often to stop those long bombs from Joe Flacco going for easy touchdowns.No. 2: Terrell Suggs will have five sacks.The new leader of the Ravens' defense is getting back to full health following the injury-plagued 2012 season. The former defensive player of the year has 46 combined tackles and seven sacks so far this year and facing the depleted Steelers' offensive line he should have a field day.Suggs is quite frankly a terrifying man to see on the field, his pre-game speeches to get his defense going are just a flurry of shouting and intensity. Ben Roethlisberger will have to have a constant eye on No. 55, otherwise the Steelers' pass attack will have no chance of being productive.No. 3: The game will be decided by a game-winning field goal.Ravens-Steelers games are usually a close fought affair so maybe this isn’t that bold, but who doesn’t enjoy a game-winner with time expiring? Football’s equivalent to a walk-off home run or buzzer-beater.I have faith in Shaun Suisham who is perfect for the year on field goal attempts, ten for ten so far. Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is also having a strong season making 12 out of 14 field goal attempts, so if the game is within three points in the final two minutes, expect the kicker to become the hero or villain.My prediction for the game: 21-18 to the Steelers. Obviously I am slightly biased being a Pittsburgh fan, but with the Ravens being painfully average this year and the Steelers are coming off a win so they have the momentum. It will be a defensive fight  as always, and the result will define both team’s success or failure for the season.
