Two Super Bowl teams meet on Sunday, but the teams have been struggling this season. In fact, both teams lack a good running game. In addition, their weak offensive lines are taking a toll on both team's quarterbacks. Roethlisberger and Flacco have been sacked 19 times to date.

Having said that, the Ravens defense has managed to put pressure on opposing quarterbacks, an area where the Steelers have been severely lacking. However, the Steelers defense did show some life in last week's win over the Jets. Steelers limited the Jets to 83 yards on 20 carries. We can only hope that will continue through the rest of the season.

Steelers look to improve 20-15 against the Ravens, including 11-7 at home. The Ravens have won the last three regular-season games at Heinz Field. Pittsburgh, on the other hand, have not lost its first three home games since 1986.

Jarvis Jones, Landry Jones, Markus Wheaton, and Isaac Redman are expected to be inactive. LB Jarvis Jones is questionable (concussion). DE Brett Keisel, LB LaMar Woodley and TE Heath Miller are listed as probable.
