A destructive defense and a productive running game have kept the Pittsburgh Steelers rolling right along without Ben Roethlisberger, but the Baltimore Ravens plan on providing a stiffer test to their bitter AFC North rivals.

At Heinz Field, they rarely have.

The Steelers look to continue their home dominance of the Ravens on Sunday as they seek their first 4-0 start in 31 years in their final test before Roethlisberger's return.

Pittsburgh has done more than most expected without its suspended quarterback, who can rejoin the team Monday as it heads into its bye week.

After surviving on an attacking defense and the legs of running back Rashard Mendenhall for two games, it was veteran Charlie Batch who provided a boost last Sunday at Tampa. Batch, starting for the injured Dennis Dixon, matched a career high with three touchdown passes in a 38-13 win.

"The standard for expectation doesn't change for us," said Mendenhall, who ran for 143 yards and a touchdown. "Nobody's going to care if you lose a game because somebody's not here or somebody's hurt. Those kind of things happen."

Ravens coach John Harbaugh, for one, hasn't been surprised at how well the Steelers have performed without Roethlisberger. A win Sunday would give Pittsburgh its first 4-0 start since 1979, when it went on to win its fourth Super Bowl.

"We're not surprised they're 3-0, but we don't care," Harbaugh said. "We're going to play the game."

While the Steelers lead the NFL in giving up 11.0 points per game, Baltimore (2-1) boasts the No. 1 total defense with an average of 244.3 yards allowed. The Ravens have held the Steelers under 100 yards on the ground in nine of their last 10 meetings.

Baltimore has shown some rare vulnerability on the ground, though, even in victory. Peyton Hillis ran for 144 yards in Cleveland's 24-17 loss last Sunday in Baltimore, the most rushing yards the Ravens have allowed since 2005.

Rather than concentrating on how his offense can match the Browns' production, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin expressed concern with Hillis' big day.

"I'd have felt better if Peyton Hillis had run for 40 as opposed to 140 because I know the type of men that play for that (Baltimore) team," said Tomlin, who called the Ravens-Steelers rivalry the best in the NFL. "Great defenses like the Baltimore Ravens usually bounce back quickly."

Mendenhall, who's averaged 3.2 yards per carry in the series, knows the Ravens' punishing style all too well. Linebacker Ray Lewis broke Mendenhall's collar bone and knocked him out for the season when the running back was a rookie in 2008.

The Steelers rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit to win that game 23-20 in overtime at Heinz Field, something they're used to doing versus Baltimore. Pittsburgh is 9-1 in its last 10 home games against the Ravens, including two playoff wins.

None of the four regular-season meetings since 2008 have been decided by more than four points.

"I'd be lying if I told you it was just another game," Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "It's a little bit more than that. ... This is the game on the schedule that we circle and we definitely look forward to.

"Maybe because we don't like these guys. We respect them, but we don't like them."

Part of the Ravens' recent struggles in Pittsburgh can be traced to Joe Flacco, who's thrown four interceptions and posted a 59.2 passer rating at Heinz Field.

Flacco may head into Sunday's matchup without arguably his best offensive weapon. Running back Ray Rice, who snapped the Steelers' 33-game streak of not allowing a 100-yard rusher with 141 yards in a 23-20 loss at Pittsburgh on Dec. 27, didn't practice Wednesday because of a bruised right knee.

Willis McGahee will get the call if Rice can't go, though Tomlin seems convinced the Pro Bowl back will be on the field.

"We're just going to prepare with the assumption that this guy's going to play," Tomlin said.

Pittsburgh's defense has forced a league-high 10 turnovers -- five interceptions -- with All-Pro safety Troy Polamalu healthy, but this will be its first taste of a Baltimore offense with Anquan Boldin in the fold. Flacco connected with the Ravens' prized offseason acquisition for three touchdowns against Cleveland, part of an eight-catch, 142-yard day.

"Anquan showed today why we wanted him to be a Raven," Harbaugh said. "He's our kind of guy."

Pittsburgh's plus-six turnover margin is tied for the league's best, while Baltimore's minus-six is tied for the NFL's worst.

Passing: Flacco - 59-108, 664 yds, 4 tds

You're the one who is clueless. If Ike wasn't having himself a horrible start to a game, the Ravens wouldn't have ever threatened to score. If it wasn't for Farrior getting beaten BADLY in the open field the Ravens wouldn't have scored a TD. The players aren't making plays on D right now. Can't blame that on LeBeau.

I know the players have to make plays. But the defensive Schemes right now are Clueless. It's a PROVEN fact that if you wanna make Flacco look great, it is to allow him to scan the field without pressure. Once Flacco gets Immediate pressure, he panics, and makes bad throws. And the defense has NOTHING to do withthat. That's ALL Lebeau.

Yeah we forced a Punt. But now we are at our 10 Yd line. And Baltimore will place 10 in the box no matter what. Arians HAS to go with a 1st down pass here. Otherwise we probably will go 3 and out, and Baltimore starts the next drive in our territory.

I know the players have to make plays. But the defensive Schemes right now are Clueless. It's a PROVEN fact that if you wanna make Flacco look great, it is to allow him to scan the field without pressure. Once Flacco gets Immediate pressure, he panics, and makes bad throws. And the defense has NOTHING to do withthat. That's ALL Lebeau.

No, it's not. You've confused the pressure not getting to Flacco with Lebeau not sending pressure. Even with the clear face guarding penalty(ie mistake) by BMac on this last Bmore drive, our pressure started to get to Flacco and now they have to punt. It's a lot different when the players make plays, and get to the QB when they're sent there.

I've always been opposed to the ignore feature. If nothing else it's good for a small amount of comedic value. I don't know about your system here, but a board that I moderate we have a feature called "Tachey goes to coventry". Basically you can use that on a poster it allows them to post, but no one outside of the mods and the poster can see it. Eventually they get bored and go away.

Will be interesting to see how the team responds to playing from behind in the 2nd half. If we had Ben, I'd be more confident(we'd also probably have a lead :) ), it gets a bit more sketchy with Batch.

The only thing that I can think of as to why the Defense played so poorly is that they didn't want to exhuast themselves for the 2nd half. Now they'll come fresh and fully charged an go all out after Flacco. Or at least I hope that's the idea because I'd hat to think that they intend to play the 2nd half the same way they did the 1st. It was ugly.

However, we MUST make a play of defense to turn the field position battle around. Cause this offense today is not going to be effective starting Inside our 20 Yd line. We can still win this game. But not without getting some pressure, and HITS on Flacco. Cause that's when he gets rattled. And if you don't Rattle Flacco, he IS Joe Montana.
