After missing last year’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is preparing to put up a huge game against his heated division rival and Pittsburgh attempts to put together their first consecutive wins together this season.

Surprisingly, the Steelers opened as 1.5-point favorites over the Ravens, but that comes thanks to the home field advantage.

The Ravens offense has been less than stellar, with a horrible running attack that makes the Steelers look respectable. This means Joe Flacco will have all of the pressure on his shoulders and Dick LeBeau can let the dogs loose and put the pressure on Flacco all day long.

With the Steelers finally rolling and the Ravens appearing to be comfortable with mediocrity this season, it looks like the stars are aligning for Pittsburgh to earn the win and find themselves right back in the mix in the AFC North.

Prediction: Steelers: 24, Ravens: 13
