3 REASONS WHY THE STEELERS WILL WIN

1) Ben Roethlisberger Roethlisberger is 7-2 in playoff games and 2-1 in AFC championship games. He has lost only twice in his career to the Ravens.

2) Mike Wallace Wallace averaged 21 yards per reception and had 26 catches of 20-yards or more. The Steelers are 12-1 when Wallace catches a touchdown pass.

3) Troy Polamalu Polamalu was directly responsible for beating the Ravens last month in Baltimore. Just his presence in the lineup could propel the Steelers to a win.

3 REASONS WHY THE STEELERS WILL LOSE

1) Joe Flacco Flacco is coming off a game in which he set four franchise playoff records, and could be the difference in a sure-to-be close game.

2) Terrell Suggs The ability for him to move all around the line makes him difficult to contain. He has 68.5 sacks and 22 forced fumbles over his career.

3) Ed Reed Despite missing six games to start the season, Reed led the NFL with eight interceptions.
