There was a time when the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. the Baltimore Ravens was considered the best rivalry in sports. But an off-year for both teams and something of a slide from the Steelers since 2012 may have lessened that in the minds of some fans, but their Week 9 matchup, which will be aired on Sunday Night Football, pits two 5-3 teams in the thick of a division title race, should boost it back into high esteem.
The Steelers, winners of two straight and three of their last four games, look to continue building on both sides of the ball. It has been a muddled product in Pittsburgh so far this season, but with wins over Houston and Indianapolis in Weeks 7 and 8 (both in Pittsburgh), the Steelers appear to be hitting a groove.
That statement will be tested and either accepted or dismissed when they face their third quality opponent in a row. Baltimore suffered a tough defeat at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7 and they're looking to remain on pace with the Bengals for the division lead.
Here are all the details on how to watch Sunday's game.
