The Baltimore Ravens are going to get the benefit of the doubt at home, and they have been the better team over the course of the season. However, the injuries to the Ravens are becoming an issue and the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing their best ball of the season with a defensive effort that's improved. Rivalry games are usually where points become key. I'll take a shot with the Steelers in a game that could truly go either way.
