Hampton offers guarantee

November 2nd, 2011

We have a guarantee, pertaining to the Ravens-Steelers game, and it comes courtesy of Casey Hampton.

“If they beat us they’ve going to have to beat us,” the Steelers nose tackle said, “but it’s not going to be an out tempo thing where they’re playing faster and are more intense. I guarantee that.”

Such talk bodes well for the Steelers on several levels.

Assuming they are able to match the speed and intensity of the Ravens, the Steelers won’t be nearly as easy to run on as they were the first time the bitter AFC North rivals met. And if Ray Rice doesn’t gash them as he did on Sept. 11 -– the fourth-year veteran rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown -– it will put more pressure on Joe Flacco and the Ravens passing game.

Rice, it should be noted, has two of the three 100-yard rushing games that the Steelers have allowed in their last 58 regular-season games. He is also averaging 107.6 yards of total offense in the Ravens’ last five games against the Steelers.

Rice carried the ball 18 times last Sunday but just eight times two weeks ago in a stunning loss to Jacksonville.

“I expect us to see a lot more Ray Rice than anybody else has,” Hampton said. “We know what type of game it’s going to be. It’s usually a physical game and they’re going to try to make it physical.”
