The Baltimore Ravens defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 30-7, and will travel to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers next week.
I’ve already gone on record saying that I wanted the Chiefs to win. However, that didn’t happen. So the Steelers will get their 3rd shot a the Ravens this season. The Steelers beat the Ravens 3 times in the 2008 season. This season the two teams have split their two meetings. However, the Ravens’ victory came while Ben Roethlisberger was still suspended.
I have little doubt that the Steelers will beat the Ravens. However, I am slightly concerned that the Steelers will get banged up in the game and not be at 100% against the Patriots in the AFC Championship game.
Of course, there is a possibility that the New York Jets could upset the Patriots, or the Ravens could upset the Steelers. But I really don’t think either of those things are going to happen. With that in mind, I don’t think that playing the Ravens right before facing the Patriots is a good scenario. But it is what it is.
The Steelers will take on the Ravens next Saturday (January 15, 2011) at 4:30 PM EST. The game will be televised on CBS.
