This series is one of the hardest hitting in the NFL and they ALWAYS play close games. The L/7 regular season meetings have been decided by 6, 3, 4, 3, 3, 3 and 3. LY the road team won both games in upsets but PIT did win by 7 at home in the playoffs. BAL is 19-5 at home. Despite the two teams tying for 1st LY PIT was #14 on off and #2 on def despite a lot of starts lost to injuries and suspension. BAL was a pedestrian #22 off and #10 def and is getting long in the tooth. In LY’s 3 meetings PIT had an avg 253-238 yd edge but held RB Rice to 20 (2.5), 32 (3.6) and 32 (2.7) yds rushing. PIT has a huge edge with their OLB’s vs a BAL OL with recently signed McKinnie (from MIN) at LT and Oher shifted to RT. PIT has better speed on both sides of the ball and I’ll call for the Steelers to win for a 2nd straight year in M&T Bank Stadium.
