(AP Photo/Don Wright) It was another classic Ravens vs. Steelers game. It came down to the team with the ball last and it was decided by a field goal. More than just a classic game between these two bitter rivals; it was a look at the past and possibly the future for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The black and gold got back to smash mouth football and while it may have been nail biting and nerve wracking, the result was a notch in the win

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel insists the intensity is not. Considering the final minutes of Pittsburgh’s 19-16 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, it’s hard to argue.

(AP Photo/Kathy Willens) The black and gold finally picked up their first win of the season last week in New York against the Jets and the team is ready to turn that win into back to back wins and then some. The challenge won’t be easy as they take on the hated rival Ravens. It will be a hard hitting, trash talking, close game. Here are the Keys to A Steelers Victory:

Still, even the ever-chatty Baltimore Ravens linebacker sounded like he was trying to convince himself that his team’s rivalry with the Pittsburgh Steelers remains as contentious as ever.

The Steelers lost 40-23. (AP Photo/Don Wright) “I’ll see you at stadiums in the fall,” Mike Tomlin bristled this past March when responding to the very idea the Pittsburgh Steelers were in decline. He called the very notion “March Talk”. Mike en the reality of a decline for ourselves. The Steelers won 12 games in 2011, dropped to 8 in 2012 and currently in 2013 they sit at 0-4. That doesn’t even include the losses in all 4 of their pre-season games either. See you at Stadiums in the fall.

Yet the end result was the same, another loss, 34-27. But all may not be lost.

Of course, he’d like to stop having to prove it. The rookie running back will make his long awaited debut Sunday when the Pittsburgh Steelers travel to London to face the Minnesota Vikings. Bell hasn’t played since spraining his right foot two carries into a preseason game against Washington last month. Originally told he would be out eight weeks, Bell plans to be ready in six. He practiced on Wednesday and barring a late setback will be available as the Steelers try to avoid their first 0-4 start since 1986. While Pittsburgh’s problems go far deeper than the running game – which happens to be 31st in the league – his teammates are anxious to get a look at the second-round pick on the field instead of on the sideline in street clothes.
