That way he'll have an excuse to do the same to start his workday, too. RUNNING IT BACK The Ravens beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, 13-10, at Heinz Field on Sunday night to take a commanding lead in the AFC North . ...

In a surprising but potentially favorable development for the Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger apparently will not start tonight's game at M&T Bank Stadium because of concussion-related symptoms. Dennis Dixon, a 2008 fifth-round pick, will make his first NFL start in a pivotal game between two AFC North rivals fighting to make the playoffs. The Steelers decided Saturday that Roethlisberger will play only in an emergency. He will be the No. 3 quarterback, with former University of Pittsburgh starter Tyler Palko as Dixon's backup.

When two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger dislocated some ribs and sprained his right throwing shoulder in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 16-13 overtime win against the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 12, the offense was forced to turn to a pair of venerable veterans in Byron Leftwich and then Charlie Batch. Another option could have been Dennis Dixon, a fifth-round pick by the Steelers in 2008 who spent four seasons with the team. Pittsburgh could have signed Dixon from the Ravens' practice squad, but no such overture was extended.

The Ravens aren't done catching breaks, not by a long shot. Now they get to play the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium at the perfect time, when their archrivals are beaten up and reeling from two straight losses, including that 20-14 horror show against the Cleveland Browns two days ago. Tell me they're not living right over at the Castle these days. Ben Roethlisberger is still hurting from his shoulder and rib injuries, although he says he's going to try to play against the Ravens.

The Ravens on Thursday morning added another young body to the competition to replace retired center Matt Birk, trading a conditional 2014 draft pick to the Indianapolis Colts for 26-year-old center A.Q. Shipley. Shipley will compete with second-year player Gino Gradkowski and 2013 sixth-round draft pick Ryan Jensen. Coach John Harbaugh said before last month's NFL draft that Gradkowski had “the pole position right now.” “He's got probably the edge,” he said. “But if we bring in somebody to compete with him, if it works out that way, that'd be great.” Assistant general manager Eric DeCosta praised Gradkowski on Monday during The Baltimore Sun Sports Forum, but also said he would have competition . Days later, the Ravens traded for Shipley.

Mike Wallace is the Pittsburgh Steelers' deep threat and Antonio Brown is the jack of all trades, but eight-year veteran Heath Miller warrants a fair amount of attention from the Ravens defense. The tight end leads Pittsburgh in receptions with 43 and ranks third in yards with 431. His six touchdown catches are tied with Wallace for the team lead and are one shy of his career best of seven set in 2007. “Heath Miller, he's a crafty veteran,” inside linebacker Jameel McClain said.
