Had Ben Roethlisberger not gotten injured last weekend, the Baltimore Ravens were in a world of trouble heading into this matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. I think Mike Vick will eventually help the Steelers get through no Big Ben with a .500 record, but not after two days of reps against a playoff caliber team desperate for a win.

Joe Flacco is lighting it up in the passing game, recovering from his dismal 117 yard effort against the Denver Broncos in Week 1 to push the Ravens to 8th in the league in passing yards. Not bad after two games. Still, this is a division rivalry, so its unlikely either team will run away with a victory, but I'm going with the Ravens in a close game tonight.

Prediction: Ravens 20, Steelers 16

What is your prediction, Broncos Country?
