Steelers vs. Ravens First Half Open Thread

Steelers look to snap a two-game skid and a three-game skid to Baltimore in their Week 13 game at the Ravens.

Which Steelers team will show up?

There's a great defensive team capable of stopping any offense with an outstanding pass rush and excellent coverage. There's a mediocre defense that's old, lacks tough edge support and is supported by shaky coverage.

Charlie Batch will be starting at quarterback, whichever of these defenses hits the field this afternoon when the Steelers take on the Ravens in Week 13.

It's a division game that means a bit less than perhaps it has in the past. Baltimore, barring a choke of epic proportions, will win the division at some point in these next four weeks - possibly today, with a win over the Steelers and a Bengals loss.

They need the win to keep pace with Houston and New England, both winners today, in the race for the AFC's top two seeds.

The Steelers are still in playoff content, and need a win to stay ahead of of the pace in the AFC.

And it's a Steelers/Ravens game, If they can't get up for this, something's really wrong with them - and I'm not talking about rib injuries.
