Re: beating the ravens 3 times
"I personally don't subscribe to that Hocus-pocus to be honest with you," Tomlin said.
It is a myth anyway.When a team has swept a division opponent in the regular season , and played them in the playoffs a third time , 11 out of 18 times , that team won the third.
The last time the Steelers beat a division foe 3 times was when Bill Belicheat was the browns coach. Twice in the "94" season , and in the playoffs.
They also beat the new Browns in 2002 , three times.
The "Old" browns are the "Ravens".
Matter of fact ,when the Steelers have faced a divisional opponent for a third time , they are 7-0 in the playoff game.
