Who do the BTSC contributors think is going to win on Christmas Day in Pittsburgh? How is it going to happen? What will the final score be when there are three

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

You know the stakes of Sunday's Yuletide-Showdown against the Ravens. The division belongs to the Steelers if they can defeat their bitter rivals for the first time in five games. In my mind, it's going to live up to all of the hype. What about the rest of BTSC. Let's take a look and Merry Christmas/Go Steelers.



Brief Analysis:

Anthony Defeo

PIT 27-6

Steelers win going away to end Ravens curse and clinch AFC North title.

Brett Foreman

PIT 28-21

Steelers finally get that elusive win over their rival.

Brian Nuckols

PIT 42-3

Steelers exercises past demons and roar pass the Ravens in a decisive blow out.

Dan Sager

PIT 33-17

Like seriously, at some point the Steelers are gonna win one of these.

Eric O’Connell

BAL 24-20

Things have been going well for the Steelers lately…too well.


PIT 20-13

Steelers are top 10 in both offense and defense. If they don’t win on Sunday, they’ll have blown an excellent chance for a superbowl run. Is this team finally ready to put the Ravens in the grave? James Harrison will answer that question and will inspire this defense to it’s best all around performance of the season.


PIT 20-0

Oh Mama I’m in fear for my life from the long arm of the law,  Law man has put an end to my running and I’m so far from my home, Oh Mama I can hear you a-cryin’ you’re so scared and all alone, Hangman is coming down from the gallows and I don’t have very long, Ahhhhhh!!!

- You get NOTHING for Christmas, you purple bastards!!

Flip Fisher

PIT 21-20

Should be a fantastic game, Steelers pull out another nail biter.

Jeff Hartman

PIT 24-17

The Ravens have had the Steelers number, but they haven’t beaten Big Ben at Heinz Field in a while. At home, for all the AFC North marbles, the Steelers prove they are a contender.

Mike Frazer


Ben is healthy for a PIT/BAL matchup in Heinz Field? Yes, please. Key stat: the Ravens haven’t beaten a road team that currently has more than two wins this season.

Robert Hitchcock

PIT 31-20

Steelers come in fully focused, leave AFC North Champs. All while looking good in all-black.

Zach Parnes

PIT 17-10

Battle of two fantastic defenses continues…

Bryan Davis

PIT 23-22

Color Rush, Christmas, Crazy crowd. Home Ben, AB and Christmas Bells are scoring will mean a win against a fierce rival.
