Sunday Night Football, week 9. It's the Steelers vs. the Ravens at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. This is smash mouth football at its finest. Two bitter rivals slugging it out in hard hitting, no holds barred action. These two teams have been battling for AFC North supremacy for years, and this as intense a rivalry as exists in today's NFL. Both teams come into this contest with identical 5-3 records, looking to stay within a half game of the division leading Bengals. Ravens' quarterback Joe Flacco is having a career year so far, on pace for career highs in yards and touchdowns. Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger exploded for a ridiculous 522 yards passing and 6 touchdowns last week and is now also having a career year, on pace for career highs in yards, passer rating and touchdowns. When these two teams get together you can expect a lot of bone crunching hits. Two teams who can't stand each other slugging it out to keep pace in a very competitive division.
