Ravens Steelers

January 15, 2011 by staff 

Ravens Steelers, The Ravens“Steelers Rivalry is one of the most intense in the National Football League. Both teams are members of the AFC North, and play at least twice a year, often for divisional supremacy. Both teams are known for fielding tough, hard-hitting defensive squads, giving their games an extra element of physical intensity.

The two teams have met in the postseason three times, all resulting in Steelers wins. They are the only two teams in the AFC North to win the Super Bowl, and possess a combined 8“2 record in the game.

In 1996, NFL football returned to Baltimore, 12 years after the original Baltimore Colts moved to Indianapolis. In a strange twist of fate, Art Modell, former owner of the Steelers’ traditional rival, the Cleveland Browns, agreed to suspend the Browns franchise (it was revived in 1999) in return for taking his players to Baltimore. The inter-divisional rivalry carried over with both teams remaining in what was then the AFC Central Division. Since the AFC Central was restructured into the AFC North in 2002, the Steelers and Ravens have dominated the division, winning at least a share of every division title.

The Steelers have won or tied for six divisional titles, with the Ravens taking four. During this stretch, the Ravens have also clinched a playoff spot three times as a wild-card, while the Steelers have been a wild-card playoff team twice. Sports Illustrated has ranked the rivalry #2 on a list of “Top 10 New NFL Rivalries”.
