Center Matt Birk has fully participated in the Ravens' last three days of practice - a promising sign that the 14-year veteran will start in Sunday's season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Birk, who underwent surgery on his left knee on Aug. 3, declined to put a percentage on the knee's strength and stability, but he sounded optimistic that he would suit up against the Steelers. “I don't like to do the percentages or anything,” he said. “I'll keep treating it and [get]

The Steelers lost here to a really bad Cleveland Browns team on a frigid December Thursday night in 2009. It was their fifth consecutive defeat and left them with a 6-7 record. Nose tackle Casey Hampton put their playoff chances into perspective. "This [bleep's] a wrap. " It's fair to wonder if the Steelers are at that point again after another loss here Sunday to a really bad Browns team. Hampton was right in '09. The Steelers missed the playoffs despite winning their final three games.

'NBC Sunday Night Football' isn't just in a league of its own when it comes to NFL telecasts. It lives on another planet so far away from the nearest competition that it can't even be judged by the same standards. And last night's broadcast of the Baltimore Ravens 13-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers was another gold-plated example of that truth. There's a reason it's the highest rated prime-time program on network TV -- there is nothing else like it. If you started with the "Football Night in America" pre-game show at 7 p.m. Sunday, you were treated to five hours of the best highlights, perspective, analysis, pop culture conversation and live game coverage that you are ever going to see on TV on any one night -- five hours of excellence!

There's been a startling amount of talk about the aging of the Pittsburgh Steelers defense, a unit that surrendered the fewest points last season and boasts the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in strong safety Troy Polamalu. The media has often noted that the Steelers have eight defensive starters 30 years or older as the team heads into Sunday's season opener at Baltimore. But Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis, who - at 36 - is the third oldest player between these teams behind Pittsburgh quarterback Charlie Batch and inside linebacker James Farrior, is ignoring the age issue.

Seattle at Cleveland Time: 1 p.m. Line: Seahawks by 3. Outlook: Butch Davis debuts as Browns coach after an off-season housecleaning. Returning, though, is QB Tim Couch, who had a 63.7 completion percentage in seven starts before getting hurt last year. The Browns may start rookie RB James Jackson, but won't have DE Courtney Brown. The Seahawks are missing three injured cornerbacks - Shawn Springs, Willie Williams and Ike Charlton. New Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck had a preseason passer rating of 116.0, second behind Denver's Brian Griese.

Casey Hampton suggested this week that the Steelers have the edge on the Baltimore Ravens because they have a better deep passing game. The Ravens tried to counter that in April by drafting one of the best cornerbacks available, Jimmy Smith of Colorado, with the 11th overall pick. Smith is big at 6 feet 2, 210 pounds, and he has been clocked in a reasonably fast 4.47 seconds in the 40. Word from Baltimore is he will make his first pro start Sunday in his first game against the Steelers.

For the Ravens, home is where the wins are. Since 2000, the Ravens have compiled a 49-18 record in Baltimore. Their home winning percentage of .720 ranks third behind the New England Patriots' .743 (52-18) and the Indianapolis Colts' .725 (50-19). Coming home tastes even sweeter for a team that just completed three consecutive games on the road and five of the past six away from M&T Bank Stadium. "It just feels good to not have to go get on a plane this week and get to stay at my home," linebacker Ray Lewis said.

ARLINGTON, Texas — The debate over which Super Bowl XLV team has the edge can be argued convincingly from either side. On this, however, there's no splitting hairs: Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel has the best, most-prodigious, most-talked-about beard of the week. And not just by a whisker. "There's no other beard that matches it," conceded Keisel, trying to maintain some modesty, "so it's just 'The Beard.'" Just about every other Steeler has some sort of facial hair — including the coach and quarterback — but none of those guys has both a Facebook site and Twitter account (neither started by him)

Two of the Ravens' four worst rushing performances this season have occurred against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But a pair of Ravens insist that they can run against the Steelers in Saturday's AFC Divisional playoff game at Heinz Field. Both Ray Rice and Willis McGahee asked for patience, arguing that the rushing attack can be effective against a defense that surrendered an average of just 62.8 yards per game — best in the NFL. "The one thing about the run game, you have to be patient," Rice said Wednesday.
