Without much fanfare, the Baltimore Ravens keep on winning.

The Ravens won Sunday for the seventh time in eight games Sunday with a 24-10 victory over the Washington Redskins. Baltimore jumped out to a 17-0 lead and staved off a brief fourth-quarter rally by Washington (7-6).

Baltimore's defense controlled the pace of the game with three forced turnovers, including two interceptions of Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell.

The win for the Ravens sets up a huge matchup next week when the Pittsburgh Steelers (10-3) travel to M&T Bank Stadium to face Baltimore (9-4). Pittsburgh won a 23-20 overtime decision in Week 4, but you had the sense all along that the December meeting would have a lot on the line.

Next week the AFC North division and possibly the No. 2 seed in the conference will be at stake between two of the league's hottest teams.
