In the first meeting between the Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Ravens escaped with a 13-10 win on the strength of a 63-yard punt return for a touchdown by Jacoby Jones in the first quarter. Keeping Jones' prowess on returns - he leads the NFL in kick return touchdowns with three this season - in mind, the Steelers did their best to limit Jones' opportunities in their 23-20 win against the Ravens Sunday. Jones returned three kicks for a total of 74 yards, but he didn't get past the Ravens' 26-yard line.

As a lifelong fan of football, history and the Pittsburgh Steelers, I was compelled to root against the New England Patriots Monday because their owner and coach once received just a slap on the wrist for their lack of integrity. I remember the AFC Championship in 2005, when it seemed as if their coach seemed to know in advance every defensive play the Steelers called - and how his cheating was later proved. It reminded me of how, once upon a time, true sports commissioners such Bart Giamatti and Judge Landis took proper steps to protect the integrity of their games, and I found myself hoping the Ravens would do what Commissioner Roger Goodell had not - that is punish the cheaters.

Last year, the Ravens went into Cincinnati, beat the Bengals and clinched an AFC North title on the season's final weekend. This season, it doesn't appear that they'll have to wait that long. In fact, they may not even have to wait beyond this weekend. A Ravens victory over the struggling Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, coupled by a Bengals loss against the San Diego Chargers, would give the Ravens their second straight AFC North crown. Following their thrilling 16-13 overtime victory over the Chargers yesterday, the Ravens sit at 9-2 for just the second time in team history.

As we have seen over the years, it can sometimes take a lot for the Pittsburgh Steelers to drag quarterback Ben Roethlisberger off the field. But the birth of his of his first child might be one thing that can sideline him. “I'm not missing the birth of my child,” Roethlisberger told The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette earlier this week. “There's no chance.  I know some fans probably don't want to hear that, but there's no chance.” Roethlisberger, who with 2,203 passing yards and 16 touchdowns through eight games games is arguably having the best season of his career, hasn't revealed when his baby is due, but he hinted on The Dan Patrick Show that it is in the next couple of weeks . The Ravens play the Steelers next week and two weeks later.

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 completed their practice squad today by signing quarterback Dennis Dixon , who has three career starts with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Dixon, 27, tried out for the team in April along with former Ravens starter Kyle Boller and Curtis Painter . The Ravens opted to sign Painter, who was cut Friday after an uneven preseason as the Ravens opted to go with two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster for the third straight year. Dixon will give the Ravens some insurance behind Joe Flacco and Tyrod Taylor . The former Oregon standout had spent the past four seasons with the Steelers, starting one game in 2009 and two in 2010.

Some sports name three stars of the game after the game. I'll do that one better: I'm going to name them before the Ravens even play. These will be the three stars when the Ravens travel to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers on Sunday. 1. Tight end Owen Daniels When Daniels caught a pair of scores on play-action passes in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the football world collectively slapped its head, as if to say: "Why didn't we think of that?" Daniels was a frequent red-zone target for Gary Kubiak when the Ravens offensive coordinator was in Houston, and the plays he scored on were textbook Kubiak sets.

Three weeks after receiving a kidney transplant from his brother, a former Ravens' player, Chris Kemoeatu has heard all of the wisecracks.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh wasn't in the mood to give the Pittsburgh Steelers an advance scouting report on his team's injuries on Monday. "We'll just take a look at them, see how they respond over the next two days and see where they're at," Harbaugh said a day after Sunday's 17-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "That's all you're getting. " The Ravens' banged-up offensive line can only hope they can squash the Pittsburgh Steelers' pass rush as abruptly in Sunday night's showdown between the AFC North leaders.
