Ravens Vs Steelers
January 15, 2011 by staff
Ravens Vs Steelers, The rule of the NFL overtime news for the playoffs is in force. It has not yet been used. Given the history of close finishes between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers, could enter the equation OT here Saturday?
“Hey, if I had to bet that both teams will be the first to go to, it would be Baltimore and Pittsburgh,” said Steelers linebacker Larry Foote.
“I mean every game is decided by three points. It seems that every game is going to get it. So I would like to see it. As long as we are the last team standing, I’m cool.”
Pittsburgh and Baltimore to play at least twice a year in the AFC North. In five of their last six regular-season games, the margin of victory was three points (with teams entering overtime twice in the past three seasons). The only exception was a four-point victory at Pittsburgh, 13-9 to Baltimore in 2008.
The last playoff meeting between the two was not as close to the finish, but it was tight. Pittsburgh won the championship match of the AFC 23-14 in the 2008 season here with the help of a touchdown interception return late Troy Polamalu.
In 2010, the Ravens won 17-14 in Pittsburgh in October. The Steelers won 13-10 at Baltimore in December.
SERIES: Results, schedule on the road to Super Bowl
“For me, it’s probably the best rivalry in sports. … This is the most physical game of the year.” Linebacker Terrell Suggs says the Ravens.
“So that’s exactly what it is. There will be a physical combat gangs, like the first two games were.”
Except maybe more.
Under the new overtime rule:
• If the team gets the first shot in overtime scores a touchdown on its first drive, the game is over.
• If the team gets the ball scores first a field goal on its first drive, the other team has a chance with the ball. If she scores a touchdown, he wins. If she becomes a target appropriate field, play continues until the next score.
Both teams must have the opportunity to possess the ball in overtime – as long as the reader of the opening does not end in a touchdown.
The first case could happen here.
“Yes we can. It’s a new rule that none of us ever had to deal, really. It’s not so much emphasis on the draw as he had told the Defensive end Brett Keisel Steelers.
“But I hope this does not happen there. Fortunately, we can simply take care of business over the past four quarters, we’re allocated.”
If neither team manages this, it could fall to placekickers: Shaun Suisham and Billy Cundiff in Pittsburgh, Baltimore.
Although Suisham said invocation of the new rule, “would be interesting, he would rather see the Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger take a knee at the end of the game for a win conclusion.
“I’d rather see the guys in training victory, but if you ask me to do, I’ll definitely be ready,” Suisham said.
He says the new rule will not work otherwise.
“No, absolutely. I never want to over-complicate what I do. I go to the field and hit the ball between the posts, “Suisham said.
This time, Cundiff Suisham or could have run more than one goal in overtime to win.
“You never know what will happen during the game,” Suisham said. “I’ll be ready for whatever I’m asked to do.”
