Ravens hope to avoid penalties against Steelers
By Mark Kaboly
Friday, October 1, 2010

Last year, Baltimore committed 20 penalties combined in the two games against the Steelers, including 11 for 113 yards in a 23-20 loss at Heinz Field. The Ravens believe that the Steelers baited them into a lot of those penalties. "Why would you think that?" Terrell Suggs recently told Baltimore reporters. "Of course not. They have nice guys over there. ... We're not little boys. We're men. We should know when we're getting baited into something. We've just got to get them between the whistles."

Last season, Baltimore averaged seven penalties for 68 yards per game. "People get upset because they get hit in the face," Steelers safety Ryan Clark said. "There is going to be some more of that Sunday."

Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians is sort of using a receiver-by-committee approach when it comes to replacing Santonio Holmes. That is especially true on one of Holmes' most successful plays - the backside slant against man coverage. "It's by formation (now)," Arians said. "There are two or three guys back there." One of them won't be rookie Antonio Brown anytime soon, although it appears that he would have the skill set to hold down such a role. "No, because I don't trust what he will see," Arians said. "Maybe he will become that, but he wasn't that in practice today."

The Steelers will wear their throwback uniforms Oct. 17 against the Browns and Nov. 14 against the Patriots.

Not practicing for the second straight day for the Steelers were QB Dennis Dixon (knee), OL Trai Essex (ankle) and DT Chris Hoke (knee). For the Ravens, RB Ray Rice (knee) was limited but is expected to play Sunday.
