If I could script my ideal football game, this would pretty much be it, and this rivalry just might be my favorite one in the NFL. Two competent offenses meet two dominating defenses, resulting in a 17-14, or in this case 20-17 game. Nothing but power running, hard nose, smash mouth football, with bodies flying everywhere, and big hits a plenty. Yes, the occasional shootout can be entertaining, but this game is my kind of football, and the way the game is meant to be played. Dennis Dixon played adequately, but against the Ravens you have to be perfect, and that one mistake at the end, cost his team the game. That's 3 straight losses for Pittsburgh, and the AFC wild card race just became an insane clusterfuck, but we need that, as most of the division races are already sewn up. Loved the game from start to finish, that's 3 straight dandy's for NFL Sunday Night, and can't wait for next week's game, and for the Pittsburgh-Baltimore rematch.
