A Ravens win, gaurantees the Bengals win the AFC North with 11 wins.

- Right now the Ravens can't win anymore than 11, and have to win out to get to it.

- The Steelers can get to 12 if they win out, but one loss means they can't get more than 11.

- The Bengals need 3 out of Detroit, Minnesota, San Diego, Kansas City, and the Jets to get to 11, and of course, have the tie breakers.

GO RAVENS!!!

Dennis Dixon gets the start for the Steelers, and Big Ben is the emergeny 3rd QB. This is a perfect opportunity for Baltimore to make Dixon's first start a nightmare.

Ravens jump out to an early 7-0 lead. If they extend the lead, they'll force the Steelers to put the ball in Dixon's hand instead of running it every down. It doesn't come naturally to root for the Ravens but I can't say the same for rooting against the Steelers!

Rooting the Ravens is only out of necessity. :)

If the records were reversed, I would root for the Steelers with a puke bucket next to me.


CRAP. TD Santonio Holmes. 7-7 (assuming the PAT is made)

I think Dixon did an admirable job in the 1st half. The Oline has stepped it up for him.

I'd like to note for the first time in my football picking life I was right about something. Going into the season I said I didn't think the Ravens were going to be very good. Everything broke right for them last year and the defense was starting to lose a step.
Despite a 7 point lead, I don't think the Ravens look like anything special.

Pittsburgh FG makes it 14-10 Ravens.

This is a street fight, as expected. 2 teams beating the crap out of each other. Bengals did that to both of them twice! AFC North football!

:D

Go.....team. Hard to root for either, but reluctantly like my pal Matt has stated, the Ravens need to win for the sake of the 'nati.

Pittsburgh is going to win at Baltimore with their third-string quarterback. They haven't lost a step with Dixon. This is not exactly what I tuned in to see.

I can't believe the Ravens haven't blown this one open with Pittsburgh using their third string QB. Has he really played that well or have the Ravens really played that poorly!? :eek:

Goodness, do you think there's any chance the Bengals would have even been able to get that kick off at the end?

It's been a good ol' AFC North football game. These two teams are going to be in physical pain tomorrow.

I don't know...they don't try to beat the clock like that unless they have timeouts...Graham has the leg...

Thanks for the info. I've only been checking in from time to time during commercial breaks from my other shows. Gotta love smashmouth football, LOL :laugh:

But, yes, Dixon has done well...he's been a pretty cool cat.

Dammit. lol.

What an interception. That was a thing of beauty, especially considering it was a d-lineman.

What's the matter Hines, why aren't you smiling now??

The Steelers are probably still sitting pretty in terms of the wild card. They get Baltimore again at home, and you'd assume Big Ben would be back by then. Polamalu may be back also. And the Texans choke job against the Colts pretty much eliminated them, and the Jaguars can't be taken seriously.

If the Steelers fall short, it will result from an epic collapse, and the Titans pretty much winning out, capping an incredible comeback.

Maybe it wouldn't be an "epic" collapse on second thought, but thought I'd throw that in there for dramatic purposes :).

However, in terms of the division, this has the Bengals looking real good, being practically three games up with five to play. I've learned to assume nothing in my time as a Cincinnati sports fan, so I'm not writing it in stone yet. But it's sure as heck a step closer :).

ON 3rd and 5, why did the Steelers not run the QB draw considering he is a
3rd string?

They should have run the QB draw more in the game but they must of had concerns of Dixon getting hurt.

It looks like we need to win 9 in a row (including playoffs) to be champs again. :eek:
