The most important game in the division this week involves one of the NFL's best rivalries.

So take your pick in Sunday's game between the Baltimore Ravens (8-6) and Pittsburgh Steelers (7-7).

Baltimore has the inside track for a wild card in the AFC and is playing its best football of the season. The Ravens outscored their last two opponents by a margin of 79-10.

Pittsburgh must beat Baltimore to keep its postseason hopes alive. The Steelers broke a five-game losing streak Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.

This is the second meeting in the past month for these two rivals. Baltimore beat Pittsburgh, 20-17, in overtime on Nov. 29 in a game Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger missed with a concussion. Roethlisberger will play this time following a 503-yard performance against the Packers.

Coming off a stellar 4-0 mark in Week 15, the AFC North blog will pick all division games on Friday.
