A super-charged environment is expected in Pittsburgh on Sunday as the Steelers, favored by a point, take on the visiting Baltimore Ravens.

The Steelers, coming off a big win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8 are favored by one point over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football in Week 9. The game is at Heinz Field, and that's likely the reason the line opened with the Steelers being favored.

The Ravens defeated a sloppy and undisciplined Steelers team 26-6 in Week 2 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore and they're coming off a tough, last-second loss to the AFC North-leading Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8. Baltimore had won five of six heading into that game, and had taken control of the division.

It's the most competitive division in football, with all four teams boasting records over .500. This is one of the marquee match-ups for the week and one that's featured every year.

Adding to it, the Steelers will retire "Mean" Joe Greene's No. 75 jersey at halftime, creating an even bigger buzz around the game's best rivalry.
