It may not be the national ratings bonanza that a Cowboys-Giants NFC Championship game would be, but for Steelers and Ravens fans, there can be no bigger game than the one that will starts at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday.
This is a game that Steelers fans (and I assume Ravens fans even if I can't comprehend what it would be like to be one) can't wait for. It will be everything that both team's fans love -- lots of defense, players limping off the field and a Heinz Field stadium that may shake itself to rubble under the feet the loudest Steelers crowd in years.
The Steelers-Ravens rivalry is what the Steelers-Browns rivalry used to be, which makes sense since Baltimore stole Cleveland's team. There's an anger and a respect that comes from beating each other bloody twice a year, every year.
