Prediction: Colts will beat Giants

The New York Giants have to be encouraged by the brilliantly efficient passing day Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers had Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts' defense. Giants quarterback Eli Manning said he watched each of the last two Colts game -- their 27-0 shutout of the Cincinnati Bengals and their 51-34 loss to Pittsburgh. So he's seen the difference between having no success and a ton of success against the Indianapolis defense.

Expect a typical Ravens-Steelers game at Heinz Field this Sunday night

History indicates that this game will be a low-scoring affair with the winning team needing a late touchdown or field goal. It's not common for either the Ravens or Steelers to blow out one another when they meet on the football field. That's part of the reason why Week 2's 26-6 Baltimore win was a tad surprising. Regardless of record, both teams bring similar attributes to each game — a hard-nosed approach on defense with a reliance on the running game to churn out first downs. Sure, Ben Roethlisberger went for 522 yards and six touchdowns against the Colts. That's not likely to happen...

5 questions with SB Nation's Ravens site Baltimore Beatdown

5 questions with SB Nation's Ravens site Baltimore Beatdown

Behind The Steel Curtain met up with Baltimore Beatdown writer Matthew Stevens to discuss the particulars of the Ravens vs. Steelers match-up on Sunday Night Football in Week 9. The Ravens are a bit banged up in the secondary, but the Ravens' front seven is capable of getting pressure on any deeper drop by Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger. Do you think the Steelers will challenge the Ravens vertically, or will Pittsburgh focus on more of a ground-based approach? I think the Steelers will have to challenge the Ravens vertically. With the Ravens having an injured Lardarius Webb on the field...

Ex-Steelers WR Nate Washington says Titans Zach Mettenberger is better than Ben was his rookie year

Ex-Steelers WR Nate Washington is just the latest of many receivers who have left Pittsburgh and have compared their current signal caller to Ben Roethlisberger. In this case, it's the comparison with rookie Zach Mettenberger. It seems the going trend these days is for Ben Roethlisberger's former teammates to speak to the media comparing their current quarterback to the one that still wins games for the Pittsburgh Steelers. First it was Mike Wallace comparing Roethlisberger to Ryan Tannehill, then Emmanuel Sanders talking about Roethlisberger's work ethic and how it shies in comparison to...

Steelers Film Room: Pass protection at its finest in Pittsburgh vs. Colts

The Steelers' offensive line may not have had a better game in terms of pass protection in the Mike Tomlin Era. We break down a few examples of that on Steelers Film Room. Pass protection was the key to Ben Roethlisberger's career game in Week 8. He'll need this same level of protection against a fiercely committed Ravens' rush, which is probably the best team-based pressure the Steelers will see all year. We highlight a few plays from good exchanges between Mike Adams and David DeCastro to good chips from running back Le'Veon Bell to quality protection along with a deep throw coming...

NFL Week 9 is upon us, and here's a look at the top fantasy football QB and TE starts and sits. Cincy Jungle adds to its weekly Fantasy Football report by taking an inside look on which quarterbacks and tight ends are set to put up big numbers, and which you should avoid starting on your roster for Week 9. START: Ben Roethlisberger Big Ben put up the second 500+ yard passing game of his career last week against the Indianapolis Colts. Looking at the pass defense rankings between both last week's Colts and this week's Ravens, you find that the numbers are very similar, ranking 21st and 22nd,...

Mark has won the Ground Player of the week and Ben Roethlisberger wins Air Player of the week. When the winners are announced, FedEx makes a $2,000 donation in each of the winning players' names to the American Red Cross. This weeks winners are Mark Ingram and the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger. Lets all congradulate Mark for winning this week. This Is Mark first time winning as far as I can remember. Actually I  think this is the first time he has been nominated.

Weakened Ravens secondary prepares to face Ben Roethlisberger, who's on a hot streak

Ravens rush linebacker Terrell Suggs has expressed his respect and admiration for Ben Roethlisberger many times over the years. However, when he was asked about the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback's record-breaking performance last Sunday, Suggs didn't exactly heap on the praise.

Ben Roethlisberger woke up Monday, changed diapers and moved on

There was no time to dwell for the Steelers quarterback, who earned AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors after Week 8. There are Ravens to prepare for and diapers to change. PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers nation is still buzzing about Ben Roethlisberger's record-setting performance against the Indianapolis Colts and award as the AFC offensive player of the week. And rightfully so, as Roethlisberger's 40-for-49 passing performance for 522 yards and six touchdowns with no interceptions was spectacular. He led the club to victory, his 100th as a starting quarterback in just 150...

It's Ravens Week and the Steelers have some momentum

The Steelers haven't beat up on Baltimore in a long time. This week, with Joe Greene getting his No. 75 jersey retired, with Ben Roethlisberger coming off the game of his life, and with Pittsburgh riding a two-game winning streak, the Ravens may be coming to town at just the right (or wrong for them) time. It's that time of year again. You know what time it is. Do I have to spell it out for you? OK, it's Ravens Week. Just nine days ago, when everyone (including yours-truly) was fearing for Ben Roethlisberger's life, as he was mere hours away from dealing with J.J. Watt and all of his...

Ben Roethlisberger over Eli Manning? Terry Bradshaw prefers Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback

The Hall of Famer and FOX analyst prefers Roethlisberger to Manning.

Ben Roethlisberger named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for win over Colts

News that should surprise no one, Ben Roethlisberger was named the top offensive player in the conference after a near-flawless, record-breaking performance in Week 8. Ben Roethlisberger being named AFC Offensive Player of the week had odds just slightly lower than the sun rising in the east. Throwing for franchise records in passing yards (522) and touchdowns (6) while leading a team to 51 points in a big victory tends to merit some individual accolades. It was Roethlisberger's first such award this season, one that vaulted him into consideration among the top statistical passing...

Power Rankings Tuesday: Colts' Season Isn't Over

In our weekly look at the power rankings, we realize that the Colts season isn't over yet. The Colts were beat handily on Sunday, losing 51-34 to the Pittsburgh Steelers.  The fact that the defense gave up 51 points and 639 yards while allowing a terrific individual day for Ben Roethlisberger has caused many to hit the panic button regarding the Colts.  But, in the words of Aaron Rodgers, Colts fans need to R-E-L-A-X.  Yes, Sunday was bad, but the season isn't over.  The overall body of work from the Colts has been positive.  There are legitimate concerns that are still there and...
