NFL Week 13 picks: Steelers over Ravens in best AFC game of the week

It should be a Thanksgiving Night Classic in Baltimore, but one the Steelers will pull out in the end.

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

One thing fans can be confident about is a Steelers/Ravens game being decided by three points. Eight of the last 10 came down to a field goal, and the last two were decided on a field goal as time expired (courtesy of Shaun Suisham).

Not surprisingly, the line shows the Ravens are three-point favorites, likely due to the fact this game is in Baltimore.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has won three of his last four starts in Baltimore, though, and unlike last year, Roethlisberger will start at M&T Bank Stadium Thursday. Charlie Batch started for an injured Roethlisberger in Week 13 last year, and pulled off the upset.

With Roethlisberger under center, it's hard to count the Steelers out. It's never easy to take the Ravens' opponent in Baltimore.

We're doing it this week, though. Steelers will take this a field goal of course.
