My Prediction

The Steelers want to make this a higher scoring game while the Ravens want to make this a defensive battle. Whichever team plays to their style will have the best chance at winning the game.

I think this game will be a higher scoring game. I think the game will be close but the Steelers just have to much firepower on offense. I think that the Steelers will go on the road and beat their division rival.

Final Score

Pittsburgh: 34
Baltimore: 24
