This Sunday, in NFL Week 13’s late afternoon headliner, the 9-2 Baltimore Ravens have the opportunity to all but lock up first place in the AFC North division by knocking off the 6-5 Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. The Ravens look to cap off an undefeated three-game stretch, which has been described as the most difficult part of their schedule. They first beat the futile, Byron Leftwich-led Steelers in Pittsburgh in Week 11, and then rode a Ray Rice miracle 4th and 29 conversion to an overtime victory last week in San Diego. The Steelers, without starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, have lost their last two games, including last week to division doormat Cleveland, where Pittsburgh turned the ball over eight times, but still somehow only lost by six. Roethlisberger’s status for this week’s game remains uncertain, as he’s battled through a dangerous dislocated rib, while the Ravens have now won an NFL-best 15 home games in a row. Here are some keys to the...

Ben Roethlisberger will not play Sunday in Baltimore, meaning Charlie Batch will make his second consecutive start at quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Roethlisberger threw briefly early in practice Friday but was in a sweat suit watching by the time practice ended. He will miss a third consecutive game since sustaining a sprained right shoulder and a dislocated rib in a...
Assuming the Pittsburgh Steelers don't turn the ball over 8 times this coming Sunday, they still will have a tough chore in beating the Baltimore Ravens should quarterback Ben Roethlisberger not play. Hell, even if Roethlisberger does play it will be a tough chore, as it always is.
Do the Steelers have a chance to win if Charlie Batch winds up starting? Sure they do, but even...
Yesterday I mentioned Pittsburgh Steelers’ Head Coach Mike Tomlin was in a no-win situation heading into the contest with the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday. I realized a long time ago that Steelers’ QB Ben Roethlisberger was in a similar situation regarding his health.
Earlier today Roethlisberger spoke to the media before practice and talked about having some pain and discomfort...
As the Ravens prepare for Steelers Week Part Two, one of their players won a weekly award for his performance last week.
Running back Ray Rice has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week, according to reports. Rice single-handedly helped the Ravens win against the Chargers because of his conversion on 4th-and-29 last Sunday afternoon.
And now for the injury report.
While Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was
limited in his return to practice yesterday, wide receiver Antonio Brown and
safety Troy Polamalu were full participants, reports Jeff Zrebiec of the
Antonio Brown and Troy Polamalu full participants for #Steelers. Roethlisberger and Cotchery were limited. LaMarr Woodley did not practice.

The Steelers have had it rough the last couple of weeks, dropping two straight while the Cincinnati Bengals have closed the gap in the wildcard race. Ben Roethlisberger's status is still up in the air for this weekend's game against the Ravens, but even with another loss, the Steelers aren't in terrible shape in the playoff picture.
The Steelers have a couple of key...
It is still unclear whether Ben Roethlisberger will be the Steelers starting quarterback when the Steelers take on the first place AFC North Baltimore Ravens. It is clear with out Big Ben the Pittsburgh Steelers are left without a quarterback to effectively get the ball to Burress. If Roehtlisberger can’t go the Steelers season may come to an end Sunday if they can’t figure out...
Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder, ribs) is unlikely to play Sunday against the Ravens. Coach Mike Tomlin said he will "leave the door open," but a source told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he would be "shocked" if Roethlisberger played.Fantasy Spin:Week 12 starter Charlie Batch (38.7 QB rating) was as bad as Byron Leftwich and if the Steelers are going...
According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, there’s a 35 percent chance that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will play this Sunday against the Ravens.

While it remains unclear if Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback
Ben Roethlisberger (rib/shoulder) will be able to suit up this weekend against
the Baltimore Ravens, coach Mike Tomlin sounded positive regarding the chances
of wide receiver Antonio Brown (ankle) and safety Troy Polamalu (calf) playing
Sunday, reports Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

Season 3, Episode 49 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I start by talking about the Ray Rice incident with the Terrible Terrible from two weeks ago after hearing his side of the story. Was Rice respecting the towel instead of disrespecting it? We invite your comments on this as well. We also both agree that it really doesn't feel like "Ravens Weeks...
Did anyone watch the Chargers/Ravens game last week? If you saw last week’s Backdoor Cover you know I had the home San Diego. What a way to lose a game.
Much was made of Ray Rice converting a 4th and 29 to keep the game alive. He didn’t even make it I mean, by at least a yard. By the time it was reviewed, the chains had already moved so the refs didn’t know where exactly they...
