Steelers, Ravens resume their bitter rivalry

The storyline
If there is a more physical, visceral rivalry in the game today, I'm not sure what it is. They met three times, including the AFC Championship Game during Pittsburgh's championship run in 2008. The Ravens won the first meeting this year on a late-game drive.

Why you should watch
Big Ben was still suspended for the first meeting. Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu are two of the best game-breaking safeties in NFL history. The Ravens are riding an eight-game win streak at home. These games are always close and bone-rattling.
