Pittsburgh Steelers Topple Baltimore Ravens

The Steelers outhit and outplayed the Ravens behind a steady as he goes Ben Roethlisberger, marching into the Super Bowl behind a defense that brought back memories of the storied Steel Curtain. Ending the homefield Jinx in the AFC title game, the Steelers beat Baltimore 23-14 on Sunday. Troy Polamalu ended any chance the Ravens had for a come back with a 40 yard interception return for a touchdown. It was a very exciting game.

In Tampa, in two weeks, the Steelers will meet the Arizona Cardinals in the Super Bowl. The Steelers harassed rookie Joe Flacco all game long. Normally unflappable, he looked lost at times and finished 13 for 30 for 141 yards and three costly interceptions. Experience showed in a game this important and it showed that experience matters.
