The bitter AFC North rivalry between the Steelers and Ravens will be renewed on Christmas night in Pittsburgh. And as usual between these two teams, the stakes are high. The Steelers hold a one-game lead in the battle to win the AFC North and can clinch the division title with a victory over the Ravens. Baltimore needs a win to keep its division title hopes alive.
The Cleveland Browns are pretty much what most observers expected this season – the worst team in the NFL. When they traded down in the draft from No. 2 to No. 15, leaving the best quarterbacks for other teams, the message was clear. They were stockpiling picks and rebuilding.
The Steelers and Ravens have played some classics; they don’t like each other, and when they meet there is usually a lot at stake in the AFC North. Sunday’s game is no different, as the winner will have a least a share of the lead in the division.
