PITTSBURGH -- Here is an interesting stat tonight that you will probably hear over and over again: The Pittsburgh Steelers own an NFL-best 13-game home winning streak on "Monday Night Football."

The undefeated Baltimore Ravens (2-0) will try to end it tonight. The Ravens added to Pittsburgh's (2-1) winning streak last year with a 38-7 loss to the Steelers at Heinz Field.

Overall the Steelers are 35-22 on Monday nights. Pittsburgh's win total is third all-time behind the Oakland Raiders (36) and Miami Dolphins (39).
