Where Ben drove us down the field and scored in the final seconds, and all the Ratbird fans were screaming "Holmes didn't break the plain!!!!".
I don't see Flacco being as likely to pull off something like that. So I'd say edge to the Steelers. Simply because the team can pull close games out better than most.
What cheered me up is a stat like Ben winning his last 6 games against the Ravens. It seems like Ben has the Ravens number like Brady has our number. Also we've won 7 of the last 9 at home (and that's including the loss this year with Batch) against the Ravens.
I can't wait! If we lose, we need to grab some a couple of free agents to get better...not just hope we can be a brand new team with the draft. One or 2 OL or CB FA might be in order.
