It's on, baby. The testosterone is flowing as witnessed by Coach Rex Ryan:
When asked to clarify if he meant that the Steelers were going to try to run the ball, Arians replied: "Make no bones about that, we're going to run the football. We took a pass-first mentality to Baltimore last year, and it backfired obviously."
The Steelers are averaging 159.1 rushing yards per contest, but rarely have been successful on the ground against Baltimore with just two 100-yard games -- Jerome Bettis and Amos Zereoue -- since the 2000 season.
Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan had a colorful rebuttal to Arians' remarks.
"If he ran it himself, we would kick his [butt]," Ryan said. "We'll find out when his team runs it and see what happens. Hey, it's Pittsburgh. It's about being physical, so bring it on and we'll see who's the most physical."
