The Ravens are surrendering 35 yards per kickoff return and 10.5 per punt return, compared with 23.7 and 4.6 for the Steelers. Brown, Pittsburgh's primary returner, is fifth in the NFL in kickoff-return average (28.9) and seventh in punt-return average (12.1). The Ravens have the edge with their kicking tandem as Sam Koch (above left) is averaging 46.8 yards per punt and has put 11 of his 20 punts inside the 20-yard line, and kicker Billy Cundiff (above right) is 17-for-20 on field-goal tries. All three of Cundiff's misses have come from 50-plus yards. The Steelers' Shaun Suisham is 13-for-18 on field-goal attempts. The Steelers placed punter Daniel Sepulveda on season-ending injured reserve Saturday; he'll be replaced by Jeremy Kapinos. David Reed was the Ravens' primary kick returner against Arizona, but Lardarius Webb is also an option. EDGE: RAVENS
