The Baltimore Ravens beat the Kansas City Chiefs in round one of the NFL playoffs and now they move onto round two where they're on the road again against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens are a road-tested team winning four road playoff games in the last three seasons and they'll be looking to make that five in Pittsburgh.
The Steelers are a three point favorite as the home team but this isn't an easy game to pick. Because the Ravens have shown they can clearly be successful on the road, a Pittsburgh win is no sure thing. They have played seven times in the last three years and only one of those has been by a two-score game. These two teams almost guarantee you a tough, low-scoring game.
In the end these games often come down to the quarterbacks. Both Ben Roethlisberger and Joe Flacco are tested and have proven they can win these types of wins. I tend to side with Roethlisberger in this matchup because he's at home and he's been so consistent over the years. That's not to say Flacco can't take a game over, like he did against the Chiefs.
We're going to stick with the Ravens on the road and take Baltimore in a 13-10 victory. Truthfully, though, it could just as easily be 13-10 Pittsburgh. But we'll stick with Baltimore going on the road and beating the Steelers.
