Every morning, Monday through Friday, blogger Matt Vensel will hook you up with reading material -- mostly on the Ravens but with some other Baltimore sports stuff, too -- to skim through as you slug down coffee and slack off at the start of your workday. That way he'll have an excuse to do the same to start his workday, too. RUNNING IT BACK The Ravens can draw confidence from their thrilling come-from-behind win at Heinz Field last year. ... Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers have ruled out quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for Sunday's game, linebacker Terrell Suggs still expects him to play . ... Roethlisberger said his dislocated rib is of greater concern than his sprained shoulder.

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.

Back in 2004, Terrell Suggs boasted that the Ravens were "the Steelers' kryptonite" because they were the only team to beat Pittsburgh in the regular season. These days, it's been Suggs who has played the role of Superman whenever the Pro Bowl linebacker sees his AFC North rival. He has come up big on goal-line stands. He has hurt the Steelers even when he's playing with a sprained shoulder. He has sacked Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger more than any other player in the NFL (9 ½ times)
