They'll do what every team does. Have a pretty even balance of pass and run for 30 minutes, give or take, and their run will get completely shut down. And then they'll come in for the second half and be like wait, why are we trying to run the ball against the #1 rush defense when their secondary can't stop a single short pass, and they'll start picking us apart. That being said, the Steelers need to shut them out in the first half and put up some big points to survive. I have no doubt that they'll be able to do that, but it'll be difficult.
on the ravens site.. oher is not practicing and says his leg hurts. hopes he can play sunday. sounds like he may miss this one..
The Steelers need to score early in this game I believe and weather the early storm of the crowd. I think that will be a big big key in this game for the Steelers. I was at the game in Baltimore last year where Dixon started on Sunday night and the Ravens defense really really feeds off that crowd especially at the start of the game. The Steelers need to get an early score of some sort and quiet the Ravens crowd and make them nervous. They were able to do that last season with Dennis Dixon when he got the early score with Holmes. After that score the Baltimore crowd was never as loud as it was before the Steelers scored and the game started. The Steelers while they still will need to be patient and not get too rattled early on in the game would help themselves out a great deal if they were to take their opening possession and put 7 points on the board...
