Ravens-Steelers: No Longer Anticipated

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

If you look around the league a the best rivalries in the NFL nowadays, you would think the Ravens-Steelers would rank among the best, right? Right?

It might be unfair to ask this question of both fans of the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers, but ask NFL Analyst Elliott Harrison over at NFL.com which games in the 2013 regular season are the most anticipated, and you won't find this rivalry mentioned anywhere.

Only once in the regular season since head coach John Harbaugh and QB Joe Flacco began their tenure here in Baltimore, has any game between these two teams been decided by more than four points. Delving deeper, of the ten regular season games during that span, eight of them were won by a field goal, one by four points and the only one-sided affari was the 35-7 beatdown the Ravens put on the Steelers to open the 2011 season.

However, that does not seem to impress those over at NFL.com, who looked at the most anticipated match-ups of the 2013 season and every single analyst neglected to mention the Ravens-Steelers games. They do like the Ravens and Steelers, just not against each other.

The Ravens match-up with the Houston Texans in Baltimore, highlighted by the return of Ed Reed in an opposing uniform, was listed. The Steelers were mentioned as well, but as opponents for both the Green Bay Packers and Miami Dolphins.

The Miami Dolphins? Are you kidding me, Elliott?
