I've always liked the Pittsburgh Steelers. I like the way they operate. I like their head coaches. The Steelers do it the right way, and play football the way it should be played. They play great, physical defense and usually have a strong running game. Everything about Pittsburgh is gritty, except for some of their fans.  The majority of them are good and knowledgeable people. And there is no better atmosphere, including Green Bay, than to watch a playoff football game in Pittsburgh with all those grills cooking outside the stadium.

Every Monday morning, the day after my favorite day of the week but still hours before that week's slate of games officially wraps up with “Monday Night Football,” I will bring you my weekly premature NFL power rankings. Why Monday? Because who wants to wait until Tuesday or Wednesday for power rankings? Why 11 teams? I don't really have a good answer for that one. I've always liked odd numbers. What am I basing them on? Who my gut tells me are the toughest teams to beat that week.

The Ravens are on a roll and so am I. Last week, as they picked up a second straight win by beating the Pittsburgh Steelers, I nailed two of my predictions - and it would have been three if not for a hard hit and faulty chin strap. It's about time I started getting some of these right. So as the Ravens look to keep it going against Adrian Peterson and the Minnesota Vikings, I hope to do the same with these bold predictions. 1. BOTH TEAMS WILL RUSH FOR 100-PLUS YARDS: The Vikings are sixth in the NFL in rushing, mainly because their three favorite plays are "Peterson left," "Peterson right" and "Peterson up the middle.

Emotional about Ray Rice's release and still stinging from a season-opening defeat, the Ravens play AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers in two days. The quick turnaround looms for the Ravens following a disappointing game Sunday in which they lost, 23-16, to the Cincinnati Bengals. The potential of falling into an 0-2 hole in the division makes the Steelers game a pivitol one for a team that just dismissed one of its top players. "It was a tough loss," veteran defensive end Chris Canty said.

On the first play of last year's season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ray Rice raced 36 yards en route to a 107-yard, one-touchdown effort. And if not for a holding penalty on wide receiver Torrey Smith, the Ravens running back would have opened the second meeting between the AFC North rivals with a 76-yard sprint to the end zone. Getting Rice into a similar groove Sunday night at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh would seem to be a priority for the Ravens. But offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said he can't rely on past history to predict the future.

Lest anyone outside the Ravens take the Houston Texans for granted, the players said Wednesday that they won't overlook the Texans even though the Ravens finished with a better record and earned the right to play Sunday's AFC divisional contest at M&T Bank Stadium, where they are 8-0 in 2011. The Ravens have only to recall the Pittsburgh Steelers' 29-23 overtime loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday to remind themselves of the instability of the postseason. “Eight-and-0 was regular season -- a great thing that we did, to do that for the first time in Ravens history, since I've been here.

Jonathan Ogden played all the way during the Ravens' 30-13 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday on an injured knee, but who could tell? Ogden did not allow a sack, kept outside linebacker Joey Porter (only three tackles) in check and helped pave the way for a 172-yard rushing effort. "It didn't feel great," Ogden said. "I didn't feel like I was close to 100 percent. It's still sore, but sometimes you've got to go with what ails you in this game. I thought I was able to give them something, and I gave them enough for us to get the win. " And enough to stabilize an offensive line that looked to be in shambles a week earlier when he was not in the lineup.

Jacoby Jones may have sat out Wednesday's practice because of an ankle injury, but the Ravens wide receiver said there's no question that he will be available for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. “I'm playing,” Jones said before Thursday's session. “I'll be on the field.” Jones, the offense's next wideout option after starters Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, said his ankle injury was not serious. “Just a bruise,” he said. “When you get something like that, there's just a little soreness that you need to get out. I'm ready to roll though.” The Ravens could lessen Jones' workload by reducing his role on returns.

Coach John Harbaugh and several players quickly offered the reminder after Sunday's embarrassing 34-17 loss to the Denver Broncos that the Ravens still have everything that they wanted to accomplish this season right in front of them. Then, several hours later, the Ravens finally put one goal behind them, courtesy of their biggest rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers. With the Steelers' 27-24 overtime loss to Dallas, the Ravens clinched a playoff berth despite being in the midst of a three-game losing streak.

The Ravens may have had their most important win of the season Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but this team still has room for a lot of improvement, especially on the offensive side of the ball. The Ravens will welcome five field goals from Justin Tucker any time, but not at the expense of touchdowns. In games against highly touted quarterbacks like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, the Ravens will probably need more than one touchdown to win. To improve, the Ravens have to cut down on the number of penalties, especially inside the red zone.
