Just a few weeks back, the Steelers notched their second win of the year, a thrilling 19-16 duel with AFC North rival Baltimore at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. That win pushed Pittsburgh to a 2-4 record, which seemed more like a consolation prize in an otherwise dismal year.
The Steelers won three other games since then, and have powered themselves back into playoff contention.
A loss puts a dent in those postseason hopes, while a win not only completes the season sweep of the Ravens, it puts Pittsburgh largely in control of its own destiny with four games to play.
