DETROIT-- --Eight miles from pristine Ford Field - site of Sunday's Super Bowl - there is Jerome Bettis' crumbling neighborhood. There is a slew of boarded-up, charred houses. There are graffiti on some and caved-in roofs on others. There are broken liquor bottles on the sidewalks and beat-up cars in the streets. Except this week, there is a sense of hope in this decaying part of town, especially in the halls of the Pittsburgh Steelers running back's own Mackenzie High School. The message being instilled, as one teacher put it, is to follow The Bus. "It's always a positive thing to know somebody in the neighborhood survived," said Dwight Thomas, Bettis' physical education teacher who still works at the school.

As a former Raven, Jamal Lewis still has tight relationships with many people in the organization and he watches the team closely, so he didn't have to go back and look at video to determine what is going on with Ray Rice and the Ravens' running game. Terrell Davis and Jerome Bettis , both former star running backs who now work as network analysts, have watched tape of Rice recently, curious about why one of the game's most dangerous all-purpose threats is averaging under 3 yards per carry and is in the midst of his worst start since his rookie year in 2008.

It has been the source of a major debate for years. Who is the best Raven - Jonathan Ogden or Ray Lewis? It's really no contest. The most physical, technically sound and dominating player is Ogden. The player with the most impact on franchise history is Lewis. It's an interesting debate because you're dealing with two of the best players at their positions in modern times, if not in the history of the NFL. And they also happen to be the team's first two draft picks. Lewis is often the popular choice because of his charisma and leadership.

Tennessee (2-3) at Pittsburgh (4-1) Time: 9 p.m., chs. 2, 7. Line: Steelers by 3. Outlook: Titans QB Steve McNair is 6-1 against the Steelers. This time, however, he will be facing a better Pittsburgh defense. The Steelers have limited Eddie George to 3.2 yards a carry, his lowest average among any AFC opponent. Steelers QB Kordell Stewart's stiffest challenge will be eluding a Tennessee pass rush that has just begun to apply pressure. Watch for Stewart to test Titans CB Andre Dyson, who got his first start last week against Detroit.

BreakdownThe formation: The formation is pro right, with tight end Jonathan Hayes (85) lined up on the right side. It's also an offset formation because the fullback, Tim Lester (34), lines up to the right split between the tackle and tight end. Wide receiver Andre Hastings is split left and Charles Johnson (81) is the wide receiver on the other side.The action: Once the ball is snapped, Hastings and Johnson cut and seal off the cornerbacks. Left tackle John Jackson blocks the end and left guard Will Wolford and center Dermontti Dawson double-team the tackle, then Dawson scrapes off to block the back-side linebacker.

Detroit-- --The great thing about the Pittsburgh Steelers is, if you need to know what anybody is thinking, all you have to do is ask linebacker Joey Porter. He is not bashful. So, when Jerome Bettis announced his retirement at the end of the Steelers' 21-10 victory in the Super Bowl and then disappeared into the hordes of media, family and well-wishers, all you really had to do was check with Joey for the rest of the story. "What would be the reason for coming back?" Porter said, as if there wasn't ever any doubt what Bettis would do if the Steelers finally took home the big trophy.

DETROIT -- When the Pittsburgh Steelers arrived to town yesterday, it was apparent they were uncomfortable about their footing heading into the Super Bowl. After rallying around the underdog theme in winning three road playoff games, the Steelers find themselves as a four-point favorite against the NFC's top-seeded Seattle Seahawks. It's a story line that has caused the Pittsburgh players to shake their heads. "We are still the underdog," Steelers cornerback Deshea Townsend said. "We're the same team that everybody wrote off seven weeks ago."

As Andy Reid mulls another NFC championship game without injured Terrell Owens, the Philadelphia Eagles' coach is working to ensure he will have the rest of his principal playmakers for the postseason. That means for the second straight week, most Eagles starters will make only a token appearance in today's regular-season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals. Never mind that quarterback Donovan McNabb is only 125 passing yards away from the first 4,000-yard season of his six-year career.

Rankings are a compilation of opinions of eight NFL writers from Tribune Company papers across the country (last week's ranking in parentheses): 1. Patriots (1) Unanimous No. 1, but we'll keep an eye on that defense. 2. Eagles (3) Unanimous No. 2, but we'll keep an eye on T.O. (that's what he wants). 3. Seahawks (4) Big win in Big Easy, but another cross-country trip (Tampa) won't be easy. 4. Colts (2) If Edgerrin James could hold onto the ball, Colts would be No. 1. 5. Vikings (12)

EIGHT GAMES into the 2003 season, Superman hasn't showed up yet. He usually wears No. 52, and nobody - absolutely nobody - can block him or gain 100 yards against him. But old Supe has been a no- show. "He usually shows up in November and December, when everybody else gets tired, when everybody else is bored and thinks it's over," Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis said, smiling. "Superman will show up, you watch." Well, it's November. Where is he? Lewis sealed the Ravens' 24-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars yesterday by catching a tipped Byron Leftwich pass with 44 seconds left in the game, his second straight week of pulling off heroics with an interception.

Pittsburgh Steelers Key player: Hines Ward, WR Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward led the AFC with 112 receptions last year and added 12 touchdowns to earn his second straight Pro Bowl appearance, but he remains one of the most overlooked stars in the league. Perhaps it's because Plaxico Burress, who combines game-breaking speed with ideal size at 6 feet 5, draws much of the attention associated with the Steelers' passing game. The Steelers, though, know Ward's value. "Hines catches everything," Steelers third receiver Antwaan Randle El told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
