Default Three things that could go wrong for Ravens vs. Steelers

Three things that could go wrong for Ravens vs. Steelers

1. Ben Roethlisberger foils the Ravens again. The Pittsburgh quarterback has a knack of brushing off a pass rusher and delivering the game-changing play against the Ravens. There's a reason why the Ravens haven't beaten him since 2006.

2. James Harrison wreaks havoc. The Steelers pass rusher has six sacks in six games against the Ravens. This time, he goes against left tackle Michael Oher, who won't be at full strength with a knee injury.

3. Up-and-down run defense takes another nosedive. The Ravens bottled up Tampa Bay's LeGarrette Blount, but they've struggled to shut down running backs consistently. Pittsburgh's Rashard Mendenhall, the NFL's seventh-leading rusher, is coming off a 151-yard rushing effort.

I wouldn't count on the third option. We didn't run great against them in the first meeting and we look to have been getting worse in that regard. With Jonathan Scott manning the blind side and Kemo looking bad I expect us to get beat on the line of scrimmage consistently.

Rashard had 95 yards against them last season. Not bad.

I wouldn't count on the second option: The referee will flag him for every time he clean hit Flacco...

This will be a relatively easy win for the Ravens. They are peaking and the Steelers are not.

No such thing as an easy win this wseason between them... very identical scores against other opponent and the last game was so close... That wasn't an easy win for the Purple browns...

again...



Could go either way Purple browns fans...

Famous last words perhaps?

Somehow I've got the feeling that if your prophecy doesn't come true, this is the last we'll hear from you.

Nah Bobby Jr. just programs his mind to not be able to think outside the box of the Raven's winning easily.

Remember earlier in the season he made the same prediction (Ravens by 2 touchdowns) and cited erroneous reasons such as margin of victory against the Lions and Browns.

Basically every time the Ravens lose it's by a stroke of luck and every time they win it's because of their superiority, go figure, he's not that different from a number of Steelers fans that post here.

After the game he came in here and tried to offer analysis even though he hadn't even seen the game, it was pretty funny.

Just trying to get you guys riled up.
