Baltimore is hungrier than than Pittsburgh and their defense is ravenous. They are going to roll into Steel City and rip Ben's head off and then feed it to Mike Tomlin then roast him over a fire pit burning Troy Polomalu. This one won't be close and it won't be pretty. My prediction is PAIN!

I think this will probably be a low scoring affair decided by field position. Both defenses will step up big and create turnovers, but good punting will be key.

These kind of games remind of back when football was a better game. Smashmouth defense, tough games, without all the razzle and the dazzle and the bling. Remember when it was a game? This is before the rules were twisted to overprotect the qb and encourage pass interference calls. Before touching someones face mask unintentionally was a cardinal sin, unless you are on offense. Heck back when the facemasks were just a bar. Roger Goodell is in love with high scores. He is forgetting the good stuff.
This is the Super Bowl for me it's the game I most want to watch. Hopefully on such a big stage fans will start demanding more of what makes football great. Maybe then the NFL will listen.

I agree this will be the better of the two games but not because of the defense it is the matchup of Flacco and Roethlisberger. THey are both so similar. I thnk Flacco is better. He has more size more arm and less brain trauma than Big Ben. Defense I give the edge to Steelers but I think offensively the edge is with the Ravens. Defense may win championships but you need to score points to win games.
