The Ravens and Steelers are set to do battle with the coin toss going in Pittsburgh’s favor and the Steelers opting to take possession first.

From the start, it’s evident that the Ravens are looking to bring pressure, as Terrell Suggs immediately beats his man on the initial snap and forced quarterback Ben Roethlisberger out of the pocket.

Roethlisberger could only toss the ball out of bounds.

Of course, the Steelers are going to the air often, hoping to move the ball with the pass and exploit a banged-up Ravens secondary. 

The Ravens were able to stop the Steelers on third-and-11 from the Baltimore 38-yard line, which led to a punt.  All in all, the Ravens got good pressure early, and that is going to be a key today.

Stay tuned to the blog throughout the game for more updates.
