Steelers-Ravens rivalry has new look in duel for 1st place (The Associated Press)

Not too long ago, Terrell Suggs spent extra time in the weight room in anticipation of the hard-hitting, physically exhausting drama known as Steelers vs. Ravens. ”You had to become a different kind of player when you played them,” said Suggs, a six-time Pro Bowl linebacker who’s been dueling Pittsburgh since entering the league in 2003. Back in heyday of this rivalry, Suggs and teammates Ray Lewis and Haloti Ngata, as well as Pittsburgh’s Troy Polamalu and Hines Ward, doled out punishment without compromise.
