NFL Picks And Predictions Week 9: Ravens Vs. Steelers

Can the Baltimore Ravens beat the Pittsburgh Steelers twice in one season?

Two of the toughest teams in the NFL, the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers, face off to settle the score in a division matchup that has the potential to be the best game this week. Pittsburgh has had a leg up in this battle, until this year when the Ravens beat Ben Roethlisberger for the first time in his career. Most of the experts foresee a tight game, a struggle between two giants in a Sunday Night Football game for the ages. 

Pete Prisco at CBS picks the Steelers, narrowly. 

This is the game of the week, two physical teams that don't like each other. It should be nasty. But there's a change here. The Steelers won't line up and try and pound it at the Ravens anymore. They will spread them out and throw it, the best way to beat them. I look for Ben Roethlisberger and that passing attack to get even for what Baltimore did in the opener. Steelers take it.

Prisco's fellow CBS panel pickers feature one holdout for a Ravens' win. Peter King takes Pittsburgh by four points. ESPN has one holdout for the Ravens on  their panel, and Peter Schrager at Fox goes with the Steelers.
