Ravens Vs. Steelers: Pittsburgh Has New 'Trick Play', According To (Unfortunate) Report

Given that almost every Ravens-Steelers game in recent memory has been decided by a single score, the two teams are certainly grasping for every last advantage they can squeeze out of their play-calling. Hours before Saturday's playoff game is set to kick off, though, ESPN's Bob Holtzman reports that he has learned of the Steelers' plan to run a brand-new trick play. From Pro Football Talk:

“Two Steelers have told me, if they catch the Ravens in the right defense, they have a trick play ready to go today that they’ve never run before.”

If true, that certainly isn't the sort of information that the Steelers would like to have made public before a playoff game. Of course, if a secret is important, it is probably important for players not to divulge it to a reporter.

Conspiracy theorists could perceive this as an attempt at misdirection by the Steelers, making this report a "trick play" in and of itself. Whoa! I know, right? In any case, we'll be on the lookout for a trick play this afternoon.
