Prediction time: Steelers at Ravens

By Jamison Hensley

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens are looking to make life rough again for Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger at M&T Bank Stadium.

In November 2006, Bart Scott leveled Roethlisberger for one of nine Ravens sacks in the game. In December 2010, Haloti Ngata bloodied Roethlisberger's nose.

It's no surprise that Baltimore has been the toughest place for Roethlisberger to play in the division. For his career, Roethlisberger is 2-2 at M&T Bank Stadium with five touchdowns and eight interceptions (65.7 passer rating). Compare that to Cincinnati and Cleveland, where Roethlisberger has a combined 16-3 record with 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Here are the official ESPN predictions (with their prediction record for the Ravens in parentheses):

Jamison Hensley (8-3), Ravens team reporter: Ravens, 20-16. The Ravens are tough to beat at home, and they are the more desperate team. Their playoff hopes are basically over if the Steelers sweep them. It will be close as always, but I like Joe Flacco's recent track record late in games against Pittsburgh.
