This game is all but over, so I thought I'd just put this up now. I've come up with a few keys to the game next week so far from watching this game. Of course, some adding of keys would be accepted
1. Ray Rice must be stopped. This little kid is so elusive I can barely keep my eyes on him. If we don't stop Ray Rice and cover him on every play, he will, by himself, take the game from us. I don't care if he's always the check down, he must be covered on every play. SOMEONE needs to be put on this little son of a gun.
2. Heap. We all saw how he picked apart the Chiefs secondary going down the middle. Look at that, that's the area that our secondary has the most problems with too. I don't know how they're going to be stopping those down the middle passes that the Ravens have been doing so well with today, but they had better find a way.
3. Their redzone offense is almost as horrible as ours. I hate to sound Madden-like right now, but whoever scores the most points is going to win this game. And by most points I mean most touchdowns..sounds obvious, right? Well, yeah, I guess it is. The Ravens and the Steelers both have problems putting the ball in the endzone once they're within the 20. There's going to be a lot of field goals kicked in this game by both teams, so the Steelers better find a way to get those 6 points more often than the Ravens do.
The Ravens seem to let teams hang around for practically the whole game. Even if they're outplaying us at the half or even at the end of the third, it won't be hard to take the game in a short time period. Just saying. Go Steelers.
