Ravens To Face Steelers In Wild-Card Round


The Ravens are heading back to Pittsburgh for a playoff matchup.

Baltimore will face the Steelers at Heinz Field in the wild-card round of the playoffs next Saturday at 8:15 p.m. on NBC. Pittsburgh beat the Bengals 27-17 Sunday night to win the AFC North and clinch a home playoff game.

"Everything starts 0-0 now," outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said after the Ravens clinched a playoff spot earlier in the day. "All you've got to do is win all your games now. So, if you ask me, I think we're a [heck] of a team on the road. Sometimes, that's the way you've got to go."

The Ravens (10-6) split with the Steelers (11-5) in the regular season, with both teams winning their home games. Pittsburgh beat the Ravens 43-23 at Heinz Field in Week 9, and the Ravens won  26-6 in Week 2.

The Ravens may face the Steelers without their star running back Le'Veon Bell, who was forced out of Sunday's game with hyperextended right knee. His status for next week is currently up in the air.

The two rivals have faced each other in plenty of big games over the years, but they haven't seen each other in the playoffs in four years. The Ravens fell to Pittsburgh in the AFC championship in the 2010 season, and also lost in the 2008 divisional-round game.

The only other time they have played in the postseason was when the Steelers won the divisional-round game during the 2001 season.
