The Pittsburgh Steelers' decision to list wide receiver Mike Wallace as a co-starter with Emmanuel Sanders on the team's updated depth chart didn't draw much of a reaction from Wallace. “I don't really have anything to say about it,” he said during a conference call with Baltimore media Wednesday. “It is what it is.” But the move could benefit the Ravens, who would be thrilled not to have to worry about the 6-foot, 199-pound speedster this Sunday. Playing Sanders over Wallace would seem to rob Pittsburgh of its best deep threat.

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman hit the free agency market after declining a three-year offer to remain with the AFC East franchise. He has taken one visit with the San Francisco 49ers. Sources say the Ravens have definite interest in Edelman. However, nothing has developed yet into a visit or contract offer. Until Tuesday, Edelman was regarded as a strong candidate to remain with the Patriots. The Ravens are concentrating on trying to sign veteran wide receiver Steve Smith, but also have a high opinion of Edelman and Emmanuel Sanders.

The Ravens are very much back in playoff position, and they can thank Joe Flacco's arm, Justin Tucker's foot and the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers' Emmanuel Sanders. Who needs anything like the wildcat offense when your quarterback is keeping the ball out of harm's way and your kicker can't seem to miss? It helps to have a little luck, too. A game that the Ravens appeared to have in control came down to one two-point conversion attempt and Sanders dropped Ben Roethlisberger's pass in the corner of the end zone.

With injured Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger watching from the sideline in sweats Sunday, backup Byron Leftwich started against the Ravens, his first start since 2009. Leftwich hit the ground running — literally — on his first drive, running for a 31-yard touchdown to give the Steelers an early 7-0 lead. But he struggled through the air, completing 18 of 39 attempts for 201 yards and one interception as the Ravens beat the Steelers, 13-10, at Heinz Field. Leftwich got a chance to lead the Steelers on a late scoring drive in the game's final possession, but he missed an open David Gilreath on third down and completed a short pass to Gilreath short of the first-down marker on fourth down.

No room for sentimentality Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune There is only one way the Steelers should bring back Hines Ward next season — if they believe he can make them a better team. There is no room for sentimentality or loyalty in the NFL. There is only room for progress. And judging by how the 2011 season went, my guess is the Steelers believe they will be better served using Ward's roster spot on a younger player. If Ward is going to be a bit player on offense, as he was last season, he would need to be a key contributor on special teams.

In this game-day staple, blogger Matt Vensel makes four sometimes-courageous predictions for the game. All he asks is that you don't hold it against him whenever those predictions end up being embarrassingly wrong. The Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday will play each other for the second time in three weeks. These two teams have gone in different directions since the Ravens won, 13-10, in Pittsburgh. The Ravens are now sitting pretty and the Steelers, who have lost two in a row, are suddenly on the fringe of the playoff picture.

Every week, I hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. This week, I chatted with Alan Robinson, who covers the Pittsburgh Steelers for The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. MV: What is status of the injury situation at quarterback for the Steelers, and I know it's early, but who do you expect to start Sunday? Might Ben Roethlisberger make one of his dramatic returns ? AR: Mike Tomlin says they're preparing Charlie Batch to start.

Every week, blogger Matt Vensel breaks down a critical play, sometimes with the help of Ravens players, from that week's game. Today, he looks at cornerback Corey Graham's interception on a trick play ran by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Before Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer rumbled into the end zone and before quarterback Charlie Batch took a spin in a hot tub time machine and played like it was 1999, the Steelers were desperately looking for a spark on offense Sunday.

Steelers 27, Browns 11 Strategy: On offense, the Steelers are the same Steelers we have seen the past couple of years, using short passes, screens and intermediate throws to get the ball into the hands of wide receivers Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders and generate yards after the catch. They also remain dedicated to the run despite their struggles. The biggest change from Week 7, though, is that they are more often using the no-huddle offense with three wide receivers to get quarterback Ben Roethlisberger into a rhythm.

Terence Garvin tried to curb his enthusiasm, but he had a feeling his name would be called. After all, in the weeks leading up to the NFL draft, the Atlanta Falcons had been constantly calling his phone. The Loyola High graduate had worked out for the Ravens in Owings Mills. And on the final day of April's draft, the Detroit Lions told him to have his phone ready. All seven rounds passed without the former West Virginia standout's name being announced, so he accepted an invitation to try out for the Pittsburgh Steelers at their rookie minicamp.

Terrell Suggs didn't want to hear about how the Ravens were still right in the thick of the AFC North race or about how they still had nine games remaining and a bye week to make much-needed corrections. After watching the defense he leads let Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger drive down the field in the final two minutes and set up Shaun Suisham's 42-yard field goal as time expired, Suggs wasn't in the mood to mince words. He used the words “sick” and “disgusting” to describe Sunday's 19-16 loss the Steelers before an announced 62,295 at Heinz Field and he acknowledged that he's very concerned with what has become of the Ravens' 2013 season.

The Ravens can do more than just beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. They can bury them for the remainder of the 2013 season. The Steelers, one of the NFL's most storied franchises, breathed a sigh of relief by defeating the New York Jets, 19-6, Sunday for their first win of the season. Desperate teams look for something to cling to in gloomy situations, so this is a good time for Pittsburgh to play the Ravens. The Steelers (1-4) are at home and if they win, they could get back into the AFC North race.
